Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson for June 05, 2011
Petey: Can I go inside? The bugs are bothering me. Mom: Try to ignore them, Petey. Petey: That won't work - bugs can sense rejection. Also disgust, contempt, unease, feigned indifference and false bravado. And they can sense embarrassment, awkwardness and hesitancy. GAH! See? It's following me! If I stand just inside the screen door, it can't get me. No matter how much I register my disgust! NYAH NYAH!Alice: I got some lawn trimmings in my hot dog. Mom: Spit it out. Has the first cookout of the year ever been so magical? Petey: NYAH NYAH NYAH NYAH. Dad: Careful. Bugs can sense sarcasm.
