Narration: The other night my friend Geof decided he really needed to have a long one-way discussion in the middle of his front yard , irrespectibve of my comfort or level of caring. Mosquito: [[thinking]] Just one more hit! I swear!
Narration: So today I decided to see if these were symptoms of the West Nile Virus.

Caption: Shooby, actually drawn as a tabby for a change.

Fluffy: [[thinking]] How big is he going to get?!
Narration: Yes, that sounds good about now.
