“Trouble on the bedbug front,” Bernie says. “Have we discussed bedbugs before? Can’t remember.” He looks at me. Is he wondering whether I remember? The answer is no, but if Bernie can’t remember something then no one can, meaning … meaning it didn’t happen at all? Wow! I never have thoughts like that.
“Seems to be an epidemic of bedbugs in New York especially.” Bedbugs? A kind of bug? Some humans have a real thing about bugs, spraying poisons and waving at the air. I’ve got nothing against bugs. Some are quite tasty. I think there’s something about that in The Dog Who Knew Too Much.
“Pest control companies are using dogs to sniff out the bedbugs.” Well, of course! “But now some customers are complaining that some of the dogs are indicating bedbugs where there are no bedbugs.” Yeah? Check again, New York buddies. “A University of Florida study showed that dogs have a 95% to 98% success rate when it comes to sniffing out bedbugs.” Good or bad? They sound like big numbers, but you tell me.
“Here’s a woman in Brooklyn says there’s a whole bedbug pandemonium going on.” Pandemonium. There’s a new one. I kind of like it. In fact, it may be one of those words that gets me going, like treat, for example.
“Chet? Hey! What’s up, big guy?”
