"Have you let the dogs out yet?"
"No. Was there an accident?"
"Nope. I was just wondering if you saw all of this snow! I will have to drive your car today."
The Nukmobile is a living legend. It can handle anything Jack Frost throws at it, much unlike the Dude's weather wimp German engineered sports car that does not even have so much as a block heater.
"My car? How much snow is out there?"
"What? That is it? I was expecting at least three feet."
"Do you have to be so Canadian all of the time?"
Yes. I believe I do.Act II
"Please don't make fun of me."
A thousand possible points of teasing passed through my mind.
"What is wrong?"
"I just don't want you to tease me. It is not my fault that I wasn't born here."
I giggled that the American just told me that he was not born here.
"Okay. I won't clown on you."
"I just need to get my toque and gloves and your car keys
That last bit he whispered so that I would not hear it.
"Dude, I can still see the grass through the snow!"
