Merci Was Sleeping
Marcus: HEY, GUYS, GUESS WHAT!
Percy: Shhhhh! Merci is sleeping. You'll wake her up.
Marcus: She should get up and come outside to play a rousing game of fetch with me.
Percy: She's old. She needs her rest, not a rousing game of fetch. One day you'll be old and want to sleep all the time too.
Marcus: No, I'm never going to get old and sleepy. If I do, who will keep Jan awake when she starts nodding off at 1 a.m.?
Percy: I think the question would be more like, when you are old, who will awaken you at 1 a.m. so you can annoy the daylights out of Jan?
Marcus: Don't worry. I'll read the directions to learn how to reset Jan's alarm clock.
Percy: And I suppose you'll borrow her glasses to read them?
Marcus: But I have perfect vision. Oh ... you mean when I supposedly get older.
Percy: Yes, when you grow old, you will have to borrow Jan's reading glasses to see the dial and wear a hearing aid to hear the alarm.
Marcus: Then I definitely don't want to grow old.
Percy: You don't have a choice. If you live long enough, you will grow old. By then you won't mind. You'll have accepted it. Merci did. Where are you going?
Marcus: To apologize to Merci for yelling when I entered the room.
Percy: But she's sleeping. You'll wake her up!
