Special K: The vet is due in 35 minutes. 
<40 minutes later>
It is finished. 

b1-66er: RIP.
How's the fam?

K: Mostly ok. Occasionally crying. 

b1: Sure.
What's the next plan?  Immediate replacement or "wait"?

K: Wait. She was Momma K's dog, it's her call. 

b1: What was the last thing you said to the dog?.

K: I think "goodbye" or maybe "you owe me about 22 grand". 

b1: DON'T JOKE ABOUT YOUR DOG'S DEATH WHEN I'M WAITING FOR A TABLE AT MY FAVORITE LV RESTAURANT.

K: Alright. What restaurant?

b1: Rírá Irish pub.
40% off for locals Fridays.
Best corned beef I've ever had (they cure their own).
Even though I don't eat it anymore.

K: Great. 
I had a bagel dog. 
Ohhh, my favorite.
When she died, Barbara said the Mourner's Kaddish to herself. 
I have the damn Shannon dead dog song in my head now. 

b1: I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WAS A DOG SONG!
Shannon is dead and gone
I hope she's drifting out to sea!

K: Shannon was Carl Wilson's dog. 
The Casey Kasem "dead dog dedication" was about this song!

b1: Jesus.


b1: I nearly spewed my steel cut oatmeal bread across the table, in front of velveteen masks.

K: Wowowowow. I love telling you something new. 

b1: I HATE that you might know something i don't...
...that's not about Jews.
That's why i hate that you work at G...
...The thing that makes me more comfortable is i know you don't pay attention...
...I'VE SEEN THE DATA!

K: Right?

b1: I know, right?  Like chillax.
I SWEAR to you this just came up in my "suggested" queue.

b1-66er: KTXT is a knife.  It's got a serrated side that's a bit rusty...
...and the other side of the blade...
You read it?  You're gonna get cut.  
You just decide where in your mind...
