[Night time. Is it night time? It is night time. Darkness is being dragged over our half of the world, just a skip ahead of the day. Schmutzie and Palinode in bed, he with a book, she with a laptop.]
Schmutzie: I want you to see this video of a cat taking a shower.
Palinode: Once more the internet has found its true purpose.
Schmutzie: Hold on while this puppy loads.
Palinode: I thought you said it was a cat.
Schmutzie: It is a cat.
Palinode: But then you claim that a puppy is loading.
Schmutzie: The cat is in the puppy.
Palinode: What, you mean that a puppy ate a cat? A cat that likes taking showers?
Palinode: Then an incision has been made in the puppy and the cat placed within? Or is this some weird interspecies sex thing you're going to make me look at?
Schmutzie: No, it's like... the cat isn't fed to the puppy, exactly. It's more like the cat is being inserted by a syringe into the puppy's anus.
Palinode: What? What the hell does that mean?
Schmutzie: You heard me.
Palinode: That explanation is acceptable to me.
