Phoenix: What have you been doing all afternoon?

Thinkin'of poetry.

Phoenix: Oh, boy. This ought to be good.

Diablo: This little piggy went to Mexico, While this little piggy stayed home. And this little piggy got Swine Flu and this little piggy got none.

Wait...Stop right there.

Best part coming up.

Phoenix: No...too much TV for you.

Diablo: Rats

This Little Piggy

Phoenix: Did you just sneeze?

Diablo: Yes, Bless me.

Phoenix: You coming down with a cold?

Diablo: No way. Basement dust. Some dust bunnies behind the home heating fuel tank are the size of bears.


Diablo: Okay, not that big. But big. Trust me. Maybe the size of pigs.


: Okay, okay, okay...the size of a stupid cotton ball. What of it?

Phoenix: Just as long as you're sure you didn't catch the swine flue.

Hell, I can't even catch a bird. How am I going to catch a swine?

New Territory

Diablo: What's with this new chummie relationship you got going on here?

Oh, it's nothing.

Don't give me that. You've taken to sittin' on the Old Man's lap.

Phoenix: So?

Diablo: You don't think she's not coming back do you?

Phoenix: It's been awhile. Hell, there ain't any more snow on the ground and she ain't here.

Diablo: So?

So what?

You know. How did it feel?

Phoenix: Warm and toasty.

Diablo: Yeah, I miss sitting on her lap.

Phoenix: Me too.

Spring In The Air

Phoenix: How's that twitter thing working for ya?

Diablo: Lots of cute cats out there. Crazy people too.

Phoenix: Any birds?

Diablo: None I can eat.

Phoenix: So what's the point?

Diablo: Didn't you hear me? Lots of cute cats.

Phoenix: What did you do?

Diablo: I signed up on twitter. My twitter character is Southbound Cat

Phoenix: That's original. Why'd you sign up?

Diablo: Twitter. Get it? A bird. I thought it would be something I could eat.

Phoenix: I don't see any feathers hanging out of your mouth.

Diablo: I'm still trying to figure it out. It's more complicated than figuring out how to open a cupboard door.

Phoenix: There's got to be something to eat with twenty million users. Someone is bound to leave a bag of Cheetos behind.

Diablo: That's what I figured. I got followers and things I'm following. But so luck in the food department.
