Is It Safe?

“IS IT SAFE?”

“Yes, it’s safe; it’s very safe.
It’s so safe you wouldn’t believe it.” 
(From the 1976 suspense thriller “Marathon Man.”)

Dudo today has been repeatedly asking the question, “Is it safe?” Ever since the contractors hoisted the scaffold early this morning.

Moose found it, if not fascinating, at least somewhat interesting. Dudo did not.

EARLIER TODAY: “IS IT SAFE?” I SAID, “YES, IT’S SAFE.”
IT DIDN’T MATTER. HE WENT BACK BEHIND THE PIANO.

The workers are long gone and won’t return until after Three Kings Day (Ephiphany).

It’s Monday evening. The terrace door is open. Moose is outside. But Dudo is on my lap.

Dudo has been on my lap for a very, very, very long time.

“IS IT SAFE?” “YES! IT’S SAFE!”
“I DON’T BELIEVE YOU.”
I’m hungry. And I’ve really gotta pee!
