The news gets around fast
I finally found my left shoe and got out of the house to find no newspaper

I desperately wanted my newspaper, saw the newspaper boy and gave chase

Unfortunately his chase had preceded mine as he was already chasing the dog

The owner of the dog saw this and began to chase the newspaper boy to catch his dog

By now the dog knew he was the subject of the chase and showed no intent to stop

In a small neighborhood like mine you can be certain that the news gets around fast

Haha, nice. The other day I came home to find a free newspaper on my front step. That night, a little Yorkie puppy was running around outside and wouldn't go away. I guess he showed up a little late. This is a fun one, Steve :)
