PERCY: Hey, Merci, I realize you're a bit old and forgetful now, but do you remember the Rascal and Catzee blogs?
MERCI: I sure do. I'm old but not doddering. We always enjoyed reading them. After their mom lost each of them, she closed their blogs, but she has a personal blog called 5 Acres and a Dream.
PERCY: She has a new book called Critter Tales. Both Rascal and Catzee are in it. And she is having a "finally got it done" celebration giveaway!
MERCI: We are entering, aren't we?
PERCY: We're entering right down to the wire, but we would sure love to win a copy of that book our old friend Leigh wrote.
MERCI: So you think all females are old?
PERCY: No, I didn't mean it that way. I just meant we've known Leigh for a number of years now. That makes her an old ... I mean, a long-time friend.
MERCI: You do know you and Jan are a lot alike in speech.
PERCY: In what way?
MERCI: Jan has a strange way of stating things too.
PERCY: I am not strange!
MERCI: But you just implied that all females are old. The other day Jan said to Mr. Doug, "Do you remember Tommy who used to live next door to Mother?
Mr. Doug asked, "Used to? Did he move?
"No," Jan replied, "she did."
Mr. Doug laughed. "So the next time I need to say someone died I should just say she moved?"
PERCY: You're right in one regard. Jan does have a strange way of stating things.
