I don't really feel like doing chores.
Can I lay down on the couch...just for a little bit?
Just for a little bit. The chores are waiting.
RITUAL, OR, LOU GEHRIG (ICE, ICE, BUDDY).
In response to your question: no. We are not doing the ice bucket challenge right before bed.
Can I please have a cup of water?
I said, not connecting the dots.
And brought him his cup.
I waited, absentmindedly, for him to drink it, and realised nanoseconds too late that his intent was never to drink it. With a deft turn of the wrist and sharp intake of breath, he turned the cup upside down and immolated himself. With water. Sans ice.
Yes, pre-emptive ha-ha. He now has a waterbed.
Incidentally, it appears that my turn may be coming - does anyone, perchance, have a horse and chariot I could borrow for a short video tomorrow evening? Preferably, a stallion that's very wild and untamed, but that's okay with pulling a chariot and doing whatever I ask him to?*
Thanks. It will be for a good cause. Sleep dry tonight, all.
