SCENE: Jeremy, Josephine, Cleo and I are out on a walk on a lovely afternoon. We come up on someone in the neighborhood who is painting a new fence white. Jeremy leans in a whispers in an urgent voice:
Jeremy: Now, remember, NO MATTER WHAT HE SAYS, we DON'T want to help him paint his fence.
Jeremy: No matter how fun he makes it sound, it's just a trick so we do all his work and he can sit and laugh at us! Avert your eyes and keep walking!
Me: Okay, Twain, you're right. Let's just keep walking.
(Okay, actually I laughed so hard I couldn't even say anything.)
