Hey Ernie. She’s done it now.
Who’s done what now, Wally?
The mom. I heard her talking the other day. She said she won’t be going to work anymore…she’s doing something called “retiring.”
Does that mean she’s gonna be home all day with us from now on?
Oh cod. That’s really gonna cramp our style, Wally. We won’t be able to get away with anything anymore. She’ll be watching us all day and making sure we don’t get into trouble…and she’ll be sticking that flashy box in our faces all the time…we’ll never get any peace and quiet.
That may be true, Ernie…but it also means we’ll get lots more cuddle time and playtime…and we’ll get more treats. And we’ll be able to start bugging her really early to feed us dinner…we won’t have to wait until she comes home like we usually do.
Hmmmm…that sounds like a pretty good trade off, Wally. This retiring thing may not be so bad after all.
