The Mystery of Starbucks

barks between beagles,“Oh, no! What…? No! What is…? What on God’s green earth is that horrible noise?”

“My new alarm clock. Don’t you love it?”

“Make it stop! Make it stop! Make it stop!”

“We’re going to start getting up earlier. Get the day going. Carpe diem!”

“I’m gonna carpe your diem.”

“Oh, for Heaven’s sake, what’s wrong with you? The sun is rising, the birds are singing, the –”
