So, I'm trying to get dad to pay attention to me. I'm doing all I can. I'm jumping up and putting my front legs on his leg while he works on that 'puter thingy. I'm wagging my tail. I'm looking as cute as I can.
Suddenly, dad says, "Where's Patches?" So I got down and started to go see if I could find him.
Then I realized I don't know Patches. Who the heck is Patches?
You're not fooling me you silly man.
