Round the Bend
MERCI:: I have to congratulate you, Micah. You get more treats than any of us around here.
MICAH: Yes, these fishy flakes are yummy!
MERCI: So why do you keep stealing Jan's food? You've stolen chicken, cheese, half a sandwich, and I can't remember what all, and now, when she wants to scramble eggs, you've been stealing her breakfast.
MICAH: It's a game. Jan runs off to do something and I gobble up one of the raw eggs. It's fun to watch her return and stare at the bowl, trying to remember whether she had cracked one egg or two.
MERCI: You're going to convince her she's gone round the bend if you keep that up.
MICAH: Round the bend. Is that where she buys the eggs?
MERCI: No, that means she'll think she's losing more marbles.
MICAH: Well, just as long as she doesn't lose them in my morning egg bowl.
