Me: Really, I just want something to cook. If we’re being exact; to make eggs.
The Boy: I’d suggest building you a robot, but we know how you feel about those.
Me: What about a robot disguised as woodland creature? I think I could handle that.
Boy: Have to be something with opposable thumbs. Raccoon?
Me: Too easily distracted.
Me: Not practical. Too small.
Boy: Giant chipmunk…
Me: Too disturbing. Panda?
Boy: Too large. Lemur? The tail would be a bonus, too.
Me: Yes. Yes, this could work.
Boy: Until then, you have the claw grabber thing I gave you.
Me: I think that broke in the move. For the best, that device really had me headed straight to hoverround days.
Boy: Sure…that’s what pushing you over the edge. What’s paused on your Divx player right now?
Boy: I will get rid of that yellow sweater you hate if you do not have the Golden Girls on pause right now.
Me: Goodnight then.
