Conversation that might have happened had Cherub been here

“Faustus, why didn’t you eat your dinner?” Cherub asked as he scowled at his companion.

 

“Yes, yes, Cherub, whatever you say….” Faustus trailed off as she browsed her suggested items on Amazon.

 

“FAUSTUS!” Cherub sprang from the desk chair and bellowed.

 

“God! What?” Faustus was visibly shaken.

 

“WHY DIDN’T YOU EAT YOUR GOD DAMNED DINNER?!”

 

“Oh, that. I ate roughly half of it.” Faustus shrugged.

 

“No you didn’t. You ate less than a quarter of it. I saw you, I did! You cut your burrito in half in the kitchen, and then you kind of picked at it until it looked like you’d eaten a quarter, but really you only ate an eighth. Why, Faustus, why?!”

 

“I wasn’t hungry?”

 

“That’s not good enough!”

 

“I was saving it for you?”

 

“Considerate of you, but still not good enough!”

 

“Cherub, I have a question for you,” Faustus suddenly said, a light clicking on in her eyes.

 

Cherub blinked several times, shocked that his wretched companion would so suddenly change the subject. This is a trick, he thought to himself. “Well?” he asked.

 

“Would you like 7/8 of a burrito?”

 

“Oh, God damn it!”
