Can You Confirm?

I was waiting for my people to get home on a brisk Tuesday night. Before you say it, yes, I'm a dog. Get over it! Anyay I received a call on my human girl's cell phone. "Woof," I asked.

"Yo, Sweetie, we have reports of your human bringing home cupcakes," the St. Bernard on the other end replied. I squeaked my toy gleefully. I was getting cupcakes! Maybe.

"Can you confirm," I asked, trying to pry and answer out of him. There was nothing but silence on the other end. "Hello, Bowser? Can you confirm?"

"Yes! Your human woman is carrying out cupcakes to the car! Prepare, they have 20 of them," Bowser replied, sounding out of breath.

"Did you run out of your human's office to see?"

"Yes, why?"

"I'll save you a cupcake," I said, disconnecting the call. I could only imagine the smug grin on Bowser's face when I brought him a chocolate cupcake. I had no time to dream about chocolate cupcakes. Lassie was on TV.
