When I am the last man on earth, one day I will be walking through its ruins.
And on this day a pack of wild dogs will approach me and the leader will say,
Top Dog: “Huh! I knew I smelled a human! O-kay! Well human, there’s gonna be a lot of changes around here.”
Me: “I’m hip, right?”
Top Dog: “Yeah… starting with the new order of the world, us.”
Top Dog: “ahem… Carl’s still in transition.”
Top Dog: “get it together, Carl.”
Me: “Aw, he’s a good boy!”
Carl smiles, happily panting.
He gets growls and dirty looks from the rest of the pack.
Top Dog: “We’re not your ‘Good Dogs’ anymore, human! We’re giving the orders around here now! From now on, YOU will be the Good Boy! We order! You -!”
Me: “I don’t want to give orders.”
Top Dog: “NEVER interrupt me, Human!”
Pack growls menacingly.
Me: “I just want to play ball.”
I hold up a bright white ball with a red stripe.
The growls stop. The pack riveted on the ball.
Top Dog: “Hey! No wait-!”
I throw it shouting, “There we go!”
All the pack except the Top Dog run after it.
Top Dog: “No! STOP! “
The pack returns, Carl leading the way with the ball in his mouth. He drops it in my hand.
Top Dog (growls at me): “Very clever. Awright you lousy squirrel, fun’s over.”
I throw the ball shouting, “There we go!”
The pack goes running after it.
Top Dog: “DAMN IT! NO! STOP!”
Humiliated and angered, the top dog glares at me.
I smile warmly.
Me: “So who’s a good boy, Now? “
