Bob joyfully agreed to become Barry’s best friend. Barry adopted Bob the day after Sophia died from an agonizing cancer. Barry’s heart needed a puppy. Bob licked Barry’s tears, licked them to the last drop. Bob made Barry laugh with his singing.
Bob had been living with Barry for five blissfully happy years when Barry met Tina. Bob accidently walked in on Barry and Tina one day. Barry was hypnotized by Tina’s teats. Bob tried and tried to bring home bitches he knew from the park. Those bitches had 8 sagging teats! Eight! Barry showed no interest. He fell under the spell of the two-teated Tina. Bob didn’t care for Tina. She smelled like a river of vanilla and sneezed in Bob’s face.
If anybody should be sneezing on anybody, it’s Bob.
Yet it was decided and agreed between Barry and Tina to say their I-do’s in front of friends and family. Bob was in charge of all the children on this festive day. He caught, he fetched, he did all the seeking they begged him to do. Although he was tired, it was his job to entertain until the last one went home with closed eyes.
The next morning Bob didn’t want to wake up. He knew the minute Barry said ‘I do’ he was homeless. Homeless because the two-teated Tina had allergies.
Bob never got back up.
