to appreciate the following you need to know that the first time i visited the captain’s house we enjoyed the echo of gunfire coming from the farm behind his house where his neighbor has set up a firing range.
me: i’m exhausted. we’ve had vomiting kids for the past two weeks
the captain: wow, sounds like a good time… if it makes you feel better
we’ve had a vomiting dog for a couple weeks now? plus we had the bonus of blood
me: do you let him inside?
the captain: ya, pretty much an inside dog
me: blood vomit can’t be good
the captain: ya, and pets aren’t on insurance so… i shoulda been a vet
me: get your neighbors to shoot him, problem solved
the captain: hell no, i’ve gotta get some kind of return on my investment
me: that was just my bitterness at losing the credit card challenge coming through
the captain: lol, very nice…
the captain: and the sleep deprivation i’m sure
the captain: so are you going to have your neighbors shoot your kids, problem solved…
