Karl wisely kept his thoughts to himself. Somehow he knew his feelings for Jimmy were inappropriate. Perhaps it was the time of day. His blood sugar was running a bit low, and he was badly in need of a snack.
I had the old Warner Brothers’ cartoons in mind when I came up with this. Usually a bull dog would look at a cat, or a cat would be looking at a mouse and a thought bubble of a roasting chicken would appear above their heads. Then I thought of what might be an inappropriate situation for one to be thinking of a steaming chicken.
Don’t worry, Jimmy ends up coming out of the afternoon unscathed. They go back to Karl’s house and have a couple of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
