“A Man and His Dog”

February 24, 2021

ME: I see you’re enjoying your “Gotcha Day” present.
WATSON: I so totally am! Thank you!!

WATSON: And, by the way, I’m sorry about the Saran Wrap on the toilet seat prank. Until you gave me this indestructible slice of meat heaven, I had a completely different understanding of the meaning of the day.

I was thinking more along the lines of an “April Fools Day Gotcha!”, you know, like, “Gotcha!!”with a crazy gag kind of thing and much less along the lines of a “Happy Day I Came to Live With You Day,” kind of “Gotcha,” which makes so much more sense now that I’m saying it out loud…so…sorryboutthat…

ME: Yeah, well…No worries. I’d been meaning to clean the bathroom floor anyway.


(Pause)


WATSON: Do you think Sarah’s looked in her sock drawer, yet?
ME: Why? What did you…Watson?! Where are you going?!!

WATSON: I need like six seconds! Just…distract her!
ME: Wait, wh—
WATSON: DISTRACT!!
