I opened the bedroom door, and stepped in. "I wanted to let you know first, because you're sure to hear the news."
"What news?" Barb sat up in bed, and hugged her knees.
"Well...Tim Tebow's gotten engaged. To a former Miss Universe. Apparently he got her a really huge ring."
Barb was nonplussed. "So?"
I took a deep breath. "Well, I'm going to email him, and send him your picture, and tell him that there'll be this super-nice lady who'll be available after I'm, like, you know, dead."
After blinking a couple of times, Barb said, "Huh?"
"I'm sure he'll break the engagement, and he's a really nice Christian boy, in good phyical shape...he'll be a lot of help with the dogs and stuff."
"Hey, no problemo...I take good care of my women!"
Think this is a made-up conversation, for comic relief? Just ask Barb.
What musical selection could be more appropriate than the theme song...at full length, a rarity...to The Monkees?

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.
