“A Man and His Dog”

WATSON: How’s it going?

ME: It’s going great. I slept like a baby–

WATSON: Is that why you woke up every two hours to pee and cry yourself back to sleep?

ME: Ha. Ha. No, I slept really well, actually and then went for a terrific run this morning. Now, I’m going to cut the grass and enjoy listening to music that makes me happy while I’m doing it.

WATSON: That’s good. You need to take some time for yourself. Enjoy.

ME: Thanks, man.

(Pause)

WATSON: While you’re mowing the lawn, I’m going to take some time for myself. Then, when you’re done being by yourself, I’ll be done being by myself, and then we can spend the rest of the day being by ourselves together. How does that sound?

ME: It sounds perfect, my friend. Absolutely perfect.
