Pushing Kevin’s Buttons

“I fixed a bed of pine needles for you, Kevin!”
“Oh thank you . . . .wait a minute! Those aren’t Hackmatack needles are they? Because I take umbrage with Hackmatack needles!”
“No they’re just regular pine needles, Kevin.”
“Oh terrific!  Thanks!”

Until next time . . . I love you
