Midge hurried along the sidewalk to catch up to Booker-T, who was on his way to Jake's house.
“Wait for me, Booker-T,” called Midge.
“I was at your house this morning,” said Jake stopping and turning around. “Where were you? I called several times but you did not answer.”
“Sorry,” said idge. “I didn't hear you. I was in the back room with my owner and she had the music on loud this morning.”
“I heard the music out front,” smiled Booker-T. “I guess that's why you didn't hear me.”
“She always plays the music when she gets ready for work,” said Midge. “But usually it is not that loud. I don't know why she had it that loud this morning.”
