Micah Trains His Brain
Micah: No, Jan! She said WHAT?
Buddy: Huh? Jan didn't say anything. She isn't even in the room.
Micah: I don't believe it!
Buddy: It's true. She's not even in the house. Jan is off somewhere to lunch.
Micah: Well, I declare! I didn't know that.
Buddy: That's not true. She told all of us she was going to the church soup kitchen to have lunch with a friend. She even put Marcus in his crate so he can't get into any trouble while she is gone.
Micah: No! I've never heard of such a thing. Tell me more.
Buddy: I just told you all I know.
Micah: You mean there's more?
Buddy: No, I mean there isn't any more! Micah, are you hallucinating?
Micah: Oh, hi, Buddy. How long have you been standing there? I didn't realize you were here.
Buddy: But you were just talking to me.
Micah: Talking to you? No, I was practicing for when Jan returns home.
Buddy: But ... how do you know what she's going to say?
Micah: I don't, but I've been reading a book that says we should train our brains to handle more than one task at a time. I figured if I practice a conversation with Jan now, I can concentrate on doing something else when she comes home and starts telling us about her day.
Buddy: I don't want to miss that conversation. I never know what Jan's rattling on about anyway, but now you two won't even be on the same subject.
