Roy was standin' at the backdoor, "When's dinner gonna be ready?"

I told him and out the door he went.

I poured dinner in the bowl and picked up the plates and carried it all into the livin' room.
I went back to the kitchen for drinks.
I sat down in front of the TV.
I expected him to be right there with me.
I filled my plate.
I wondered what was keepin' him.
I watched the news and ate my supper.
After about 15 minutes, I was done.
And he was still outside.
I was gettin' a bit nervous.
It was gettin' dark.
I told him dinner was imminent.

I'd better go check on him!!

This is where I found him!

Sittin' up there!!
"Hooooney!! What ARE you doin'!?!?"

"You said dinner was in 10 minutes!"

Well, C'mon Woman! It ain't been 10 minutes yet!


Time does funny things to us. Weird but true.

That Roy, I tell ya. What a character. Next time, use smaller words. Like "right now" or "go wash up"!
