Chetspeak on Sunday
“Me and Chet, of course.”
Sherry glanced my way. “The dog?”
“Did he just eat all that bacon?”
Bernie checked the paper plate Rodrigo had sent out. It lay on the patio floor at Senor Breakfast, and at that moment I happened to be licking it clean. Bernie gave me a look. I gave him a look back, kept licking at the same time. Two things at once? I was on top of my game.
“His appetite, uh, sharpens a bit when the weather cools down,” Bernie said.
How interesting! I’d have to think about that. Leave it to Bernie to come up with something so brilliant. What would I do without him?
“He’s just sort of your pal?” Sherry said. “Follows you around while you work?”
“More the other way around,” Bernie said.
