SPOT QUITS PLAYING MONOPOLY, EXPLORES NEW, CRIMINAL OCCUPATIONS
Spot the dog quit trying to win board games with his neighbors in San Francisco's shadowy Financial District. His off-and-on friend, Seed Money Parrot, wondered what the humble Fox Terrier now did for his bones in life.
"We've been missing you weekends, Spot. Monopoly's getting 'little routine without a regular loser like you at the table. What are you doing now?" asked Seed Money loudly, so everyone on the street could overhear.
"Dealing Cheerios on Montgomery, dude. Cheap pipelines, no hassles with New York. Boys on Sansome Street quiet, too," Spot answered, narrowing his canine eyes like the clever opportunist he ...increasingly...was.
"They don't know this new market like I do. Gotta poop papers close-style to know this town like me, Cage Breath," said a new, more confident Spot dog.
