Julian was lounging around, sipping milk, and minding his own business when Callie sashayed in to make a request.
“Oh Juuuuliaaaan,” she sang.
He ignored her.
“Juuuliaaaaaaan,” she repeated.
She hopped up on the barstool next to him and proceeded to make her request.
“I want to go outside and play horseshoes. But I saw a bug outside the window…”
“What kind of bug?”
“It was big and ugly and hairy and it looked like this!
“With your talents and speed, I think you should go kill it for me!”
Julian would do anything for his sister, but…she was his little sister; And, big brothers have certain rights, and every now and then big brothers need to behave as big brothers often do.
“Sure! I could kill it for you! But, if it’s as big and hairy and ugly as you say, then it might get a little messy.”
“Yeah! If I step on it, all the bug juice will fly out and spatter allllllll over the cabin! It’ll take days to clean.”
[insert Julian’s evil laughter]
