a really good chance that the liquid was from the dog.
When we were crossing the street,
you stepped on a dead squirrel and
a half eaten BLT, and questionable slime,
as we were walking by the barn.
Now imagine bringing all that into this house.
We can't have,
I know you went to a public restroom with that shoes on.
That is disgusting.

You'd rather do that than have one unified policy here?

this is a country of laws; it's nothing personal, man.

You want me to take my shoes off? Here.

we're not supposed to be living like enemies.
(book closes)

- I did take this a little too far, but, hey,
at the end of the day,
I'm glad we could come to an agreement, like roommates.
