Marcus Has A Plan
Buddy: Well, here we are in the doghouse again.
Marcus: Doghouse? What doghouse?
Merci: It's a figure of speech, Marcus. It means we are in trouble again.
Marcus: What did we do?
Buddy: Merci and I were excited and rowdy. You tried to take Jan out!
Marcus: Out where?
Merci: Out of commission. As in down on the sidewalk being dragged.
Marcus: Not me! I've been an angel all day.
Buddy: Are you denying when those two loose dogs came running across the street at us you went wild and started leaping around like a bull moose in a tub of seltzer water?
Marcus: I certainly do deny it. And I didn't see you two behaving yourselves either.
Merci: Aha, so you do admit it!
Marcus: I admit nothing. Besides it all worked out in the end, didn't it?
Buddy: Yes, because Jan used that psychedelic water pistol she carries to squirt them in the face with water and their owner was right behind to catch them and take them back to their house.
Merci: He apologized that they had gotten loose and Jan said she hopes we never get loose because she can't chase us.
Marcus: So what's the problem?
Buddy: The problem is that you get excited and your brain goes on vacation. You could have injured Jan!
Marcus: She would have been okay. We would have picked her up and walked her home. Percy would have done a cat scan to make sure she hadn't lost any important body parts in the fall, and I would have licked her wounds so she'd heal faster.
Merci: Oh, well, just so you had a plan.
Marcus: Of course.
Buddy: You do know Merci was being sarcastic, don't you?
