Mom found a new place not too far away where we can go play ball and I don’t get muddy. I sure don’t know what’s wrong with getting muddy, but it has something to do with some meeting Mom has to go to and a bath. Maybe she’s going to have a bath at the meeting. Or maybe the meeting’s about baths. I don’t know…it just sounds too complex for me….
Sage. No. You have it all wrong. I have to go to a meeting and there is no time to give you a bath! Got it?
Um, yes, Mom. No mud puddles….no 1000 Acres…no bath. Can we show a re-run, like they do on TV?
How about we play ball for a bit, then we’ll talk about re-runs. How does that sound?
Or nose butt?
