The Bar Code

Sunday, January 7, 2018

When dogs hear a phrase like, “Scan the bar code,”
they’re going to think you mean peruse the dog poem.
“Scan the bark ode.” That sort of thing. Dogs,
thank God, don’t fuss much except when it comes
to bones and unexpected visitors, so go ahead and use
your confusing phrases, human. Speak as though
your bipedal counterparts are the only ones listening,
but know that winter is coming. Know that the end
is, if not nigh, exactly, nearly nigh, and there
will be a reckoning. A “barkoning,” if you will?
