What Do You Want To Do?

 “Hey Midge!” called Booker-T as he entered the doggie door. “Where are you?”
“Hi Booker-T,” said Snappy when he saw Booker-T enter the living room. “What are you doing?”
“Hi Snappy,” said Booker-T. “I was just looking for Midge.”
“Didn't you see her outside when you came into the back yard?” asked Snappy.
“No,” said Booker-T. “Was she outside?”
“She went outside a few minutes before you came in,” said Snappy.
“Maybe I missed her when I came in,” said Booker-T.

New Day at the Zoo

“Animals marching two by two,” sang Midge as she and Booker-T strolled along the sidewalk.. “Sing with me Booker-T.”
“Oh no,” said Booker-T. “You don't want to hear me sing. I'm terrible.”
“Why?” asked Midge. “You can't be worse than I am.”
“I'm very bad,” said Booker-T. “I sound like a really sick animal about to kick the bucket. If I start singing, people would think an air raid just went off in the neighborhood. I'm really bad.”
“Try” said Midge. “I want to hear you. It will be okay.”
“Animals marching two by two,” sang Booker-T.
Suddenly they heard some dogs in the neighborhood howling very loudly.

Midge The Joker

 “Hello Jake!” called Midge as she and Booker-T came through the gate at Jake's house.
“Hey Jake!” called Booker-T as he sat down near the porch, smiling at Jake.
“Hi you guys,” said Jake. “What are you two doing this morning? You look like you two are doing something sneaky.”
“Are you sleeping Jake?” laughed Midge, as she joined Booker-T and sat down.
“No,” said Jake shaking his head. “I'm talking to you, aren't I? Why do you think I'm sleeping? Do I look like I'm sleeping?”
“You asked us what we were doing,” said Midge. If you aren't sleeping, you would know what we are doing, wouldn't you?”
“Right,” agreed Jake. “Does that mean I'm sleeping now because I ask what you are doing?”

“Hi you guys,” said Jake. “What are you doing this morning?”
“We are just sitting here waiting for you,” said Midge. “I'm happy you are here.”
“Lets go say hi to Snappy now,” said Booker-T. “Midge said he wants us to come see him.”
“Okay,” said Midge as she stood up and started walking to the back of the house.
Jake and Booker-T followed behind her. In the back, they crawled into the house through Midge's doggie door into the kitchen.

Midge and the Hula Hoop

  Midge and Booker-T started walking along the sidewalk to Jake's house. Laying in the middle of the road, Midge found a hula hoop.
“Wait,” said Midge. “I want to get that hula hoop.”
“What are you going to do with a hula hoop?” asked Booker-T.
“Maybe I can find something to do with it,” said Midge.
“Like what?” asked Booker-T. “You can't make it go round and round on your hips like those kids do.”
“Well, let me think about it a while,” said Midge rolling her eyes.
“You have no ideas?” asked Booker-T. “But I do think your brain is trying to find one.”
