    Knowing Rat, he was drinking Corona beer.

    Goat, I like your mask!

    But how could you think such a thing about Rat? Did you happen to peep into his recycling container?

    Coronavirus? Are you sure? Rat’s book is about his research on Corona vs. Us.

    Corona, the beer

    Being Italian I could teach it myself, but I refuse to have a student like Rat .

    Is Pastis trying to suggest that spending the time just drinking is somehow bad?

    You can’t spend all of your time only drinking. Your bladder will insist on that.

    Italian? Rat, stop. It’s complicated and useless to learn it.

    YES! Thank all those who have gotten us through this. It’s ENDING!! People are back out shopping! Few coming into the store is wearing a mask. People are ready to get back to the real normal (not the new normal). Economy is rebounding, stock market up, unemployment dropping more than expected.

    Only trouble is people that have holed up have forgotten how to drive.

    Time to get back to living life and working!

    Rat reading history books. That right there is a red flag that he’s been doing nothing.

    Is the joke that Goat closed the blinds on Rat?…Even though the blinds are on the other side of the window? Pastis is terrible.

    No need to embellish the truth, Rat. No one cares what you’ve been doing at home. But that mountain of empty beer cans speaks volumes about volumes of beer drunk….
