“Oh hi Uncle Dave, it’s me. Bill. Bill the dog?.....ummm.......sorry to bother you so late.....but my mum and dad will be leaving really early Monday morning to take my sis to college. We were wondering if maybe you could come over and play with me? Or I could come over to your place and do all that paperwork filing - like last time? By the way, I never did get that paycheck you promised.”
Right. Sorry ‘bout that Bill - I think HR department is still waiting for your proof-of-citizenship info? Anyway. I’ll be over bright and early Monday with bagels.
“Uncle Dave. Don’t be ridiculous. Croissants for Bill le chien.”
