Empty Promises

It’s a Dog’s Life . . .

DOG: Can I sleep in the bed?

ME: No.

DOG: Why not?

ME: You always jump around. You don’t let me rest.

DOG: I won’t this time.

ME: Yes, you will.

DOG: No, I won’t.

ME: Yes, you will.

DOG: I promise.

ME: Sure you do.

DOG: No, really. I swear.

ME: Fine come on up.

DOG: [Jumps on bed. Jumps on my chest. Jumps on my head. Chews my hair. Passes wind in my face. Steals covers.

ME: Empty promises, Dog; empty promises.
