Eek! What are you doing?
1
Drinking a cuppa Joe.

But, but, Doc Phoebe said no coffee after 3:00 pm if you wanna sleep good.

1
Yes, yes she did. But it’s not 10:00 pm like we used to and now we sleep all the way to 6:00 am instead of 4:30 or 5:00. Besides, it’s 3:00 somewhere.

2
Ha ha! Very funny. Just wait ’til Doctor Phoebe finds out that you are cheating.

1
She’ll be cool with it, I’m pretty sure. At least we paid attention to what she said, didn’t we?

2
OK, if you’re sure we are alright. But it would be best if we broke the old caffeine addiction, really.

1
Yes, I know. Did you notice we bought a certain prominent brand cola after our walk today, the one we used to like a whole lot and it gave us a headache by the third sip from the bottle? We had to lie down for an hour to let it pass. Fortunately we slept part of that.

2
Well good! is all I got to say. We certainly aren’t addicted to sodas and their various additives. Water, coffee or juice for me, please.

1
You notice George is counting the time until he can drink coffee again? He swore off for a month and is 3 weeks in. After 3 weeks I’d stay off if I were him. But he will be here, I bet, the first day he can have it again. Getting his morning fix.

Yes, well, (changing the subject completely) about yesterday’s post, it was kind of serious, no?

1
Well, kind of. But what I wrote is so obvious to anyone with 10 brain cells left that it shouldn’t even need to be said. But TV turns those 10 cells into oatmeal, I’m pretty sure. Now, bad Chinese Kungfu movies, on the other hand (pauses)

2
(interrupting) Yeah, we love ’em. We’ll even watch some of them 3 or 4 times. Good old YouTube. Of course, it would be nice if we spoke Chinese.

1
Well, reading the subtitles is good. Reading is fundamental, after all.

2
Hahahahaha. Wait! You can’t be serious?
