A Good Mud Bath
Micah: We had a rainstorm yesterday, but a real downpour the Sunday before. Can you see it coming down in sheets?
Merci: Even Marcus didn't want to go outside. He did try to sneak his outside ball inside so it wouldn't be scared, but he was caught.
Micah: He threatened to sue Jan for making him leave it exposed to the elements - namely, thunder and lightning - but Jan said he'd have to get a job to pay for his own attorney and he changed his mind.
Mercy: Come to think of it, I'm surprised Marcus didn't volunteer to stay outside and keep his ball company since he loves mud so much.
Micah: Thunderstorms make him nervous.
Merci: That must be why he decided a good mud bath would do wonders for the life of the ball.
Micah: Surely you noticed how pretty and soft the ball was after the mud bath?
Merci: No, and neither did you. You were in the nip again, weren't you!
Micah: How did you know?
Merci: For a moment you sounded like Marcus.
