Determination

Phone call with a friend
ME
"Good boy!"

HER
Who are you talking to?

ME
Sparky.

HER
He's out?!

ME
Yes and it's the first time he's kicked his ball in over an hour. He keeps missing it. Then he gets upset.

HER
I'm so glad he's out!

ME
Yeah, it's been a while. -"I'm here. Turn around."

HER
What was that?

ME
He called my name.

HER
He knows your name?

ME
Yes. When he gets into trouble or he thinks I've left the room, he calls me.

HER
What's he doing now?

ME
(Sigh) Trying to shake hands with a box.

Alice: And he'll never die. I can always keep "him" backed up on file.

Kendra: The box thing is really pathetic. And he's so DRAMATIC about it sometimes.

Bayjb: The conversations that pass through my life are often good for a laugh :)
