Guarding Jan's Feet
Percy: Hey, Rusty, I totally forgot tomorrow is Monday. I don't know what to post on. Do you have any ideas?
Rusty: Nope. Not a clue.
Percy: Do you think anyone would want to know that all the early fireworks this weekend have glued Marcus to Jan's feet?
Rusty: Nope. No interest. Wait. What?
Percy: You know how sensitive Marcus is. He's always under Jan's feet anyway, but between the recent storms and the fireworks close to home, Marcus is being a big baby.
Marcus: Hey, have any of you seen where I left my blue ball?
Marcus: Who were you discussing when I walked in? I think I heard the words "big baby". Were you talking about Merci?
Percy: Yes, we were definitely discussing Merci. You know if we were talking about you, we would have mentioned how brave you are.
Rusty: So brave you have been guarding Jan's feet to make sure the fireworks don't cause her to panic and run away from home!
Percy: I take it your strategy is if she panics and tries to run, she'll trip over you?
Marcus: Uh ... yes. Exactly.
Rusty: Good plan.
Percy: And how long did it take you to come up with that solution?
Marcus: Not long. You know I'm a quick thinker.
Rusty: I think it was about the second !!!BOOM!!! Marcus, where did you disappear to?
Percy: He's on Jan's feet.
Rusty: There's no room between Jan and the desk.
Percy: There is if you're a big, brave, quick-thinker like Marcus.
Rusty: There should be time for a quick nap before the emergency.
Percy: What emergency?
Rusty: The one Jan's going to have when she tries to leap to her feet.
