Marcus: Look at this. Merci is eating in my Private Dining Car.
Merci: Hey, I kind of like eating in here. It's roomy and private.
Marcus: You're supposed to be eating in the kitchen with Buddy. I'm the only one allowed to come eat in my PDC.
Merci: Jan put my food bowl in here because I wasn't eating. She got upset with me and I can't eat when I'm upset.
Marcus: You're too sensitive. Jan told you to sit and wait and instead you stood and started eating.
Merci: You do that all the time.
Marcus: Yes, but Jan expects that of me. You're supposed to be the well-behaved dog.
Merci: I am. Usually. But sometimes I get a little confused and when Jan says "no" I can't eat, so now when that happens, she puts my bowl in your PDC so I can eat without you guys stealing my food. If you notice, after the first dining-in experience, I prefer to dine out with my head in.
Marcus: So it's okay to steal my Private Dining Car but not okay for me to steal your food?
Merci: Exactly! I mean, no. I'm only borrowing it. I borrow your bed all the time.
Marcus: Yes, and I've been meaning to speak to you about that. I don't mind you borrowing my bed, but you've been leaving floofy fur behind. You have such a thick winter coat, you need a good brushing.
Merci: Okay, I'll have Jan get right on it, just as soon as I finish breakfast.
Marcus: I'm really thankful for my Private Dining Car, but I only eat in there on special occasions. Merci has discovered the joy of savoring a meal in a fine dining room. I'll have to see if there is any interest in others renting it for the occasional bring-your-own meal dining.
Merci: I've never heard of a bring-your-own-meal dining concept.
Marcus: That's because I've just invented it. I could make millions!
Merci: Or you could be hauled off in a straight jacket.
We always have much to be thankful for, so we are joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home.
