The Chicken Caper
Marcus: I had nothing to do with this. NOTHING! I am totally innocent.
Taylor: What didn't you do this time?
Marcus: Jan set the package of chicken on the kitchen table and went to answer the phone. When she came back, the package had holes in it, most noticeably a huge hole.
Taylor: So why are you hollering your innocence?
Marcus: Because I get blamed for everything around here and I didn't do this.
Taylor: Of course you didn't. We all know who did.
Marcus: You mean Jan put those claw holes in there and ripped a hole in the package?
Taylor: No. Jan found the ripped package, then put it back down to go let you and Buddy outside. When she came back, she found a piece of chicken missing. You weren't even in the room at the time.
Marcus: Then who did?
Taylor: Micah. You know he steals anything edible, hot or cold, cooked or raw.
Marcus: So I'm not in trouble for this?
Taylor: Of course not.
Marcus: What a relief! And I hope Jan doesn't think I stole the cookie off her plate while she was away from the computer.
Taylor: Why would she think that?
Marcus: Oh, I don't know. Perhaps because -
Taylor: Because you stole it!
Marcus: Well, maybe. But I didn't have anything to do with the chicken!
