Interlude on Dog Poop

Charlie: I’m embarrassed by our back yard.

Cassie: Because the driveway and back path aren’t shoveled to perfection? There have been comments from Oksana (the after-school babysitter).

Charlie: No. Because of all the dog poops that are scattered everywhere on the frozen snow. Totally gross.

Cassie: Go clean it up.

Charlie: You clean it up.

Cassie: Your chore. You clean it up.

Charlie: I’m not cleaning it this time. I’ll slip and fall on that frozen tundra….and I’ll slide right into a pile of poop. Then I’ll puke. You clean it!

Cassie: This conversation….

Charlie: I know. I’m never bringing it up again.
