Moose Xing

plinky.com asked me to tell a story with dialogue about two cops in Alaska.

"Hey."

"Huh?"

"Hey."

"Arghhhh!"

"Come back!"

"Oh, it's you."

"Who did you think it was?"

"A moose."

"What?"

"Or a bear."

"Really?"

"Yup… You could have been a bear, what with your fancy fluffy coat n' hat."

"Chuck, as far as I know, bears do NOT shop at LL Bean."

"LL Bean… Really?"

"Ah… Nice night tonight isn't it."

"Cold."

"But nice. Frosty. Clear."

"Cold."

"Quiet. Calm."

"Cold."

"Did you every think of learning from the bears and shopping at LL Bean?"

"Nah, I'm more of a moose man."

"Oh."

"Did you come out here for anything in particular?"

"Not really, just to see what was up. Anything happening?"

"Nah."

"Oh."

"Couldn't you have radioed?"

"I guess, but I felt like a drive. And besides… You never know when something might… Oh my god! What's that!"

"What?"

"Behind you, it's a…"

"What?"

"Tree."

"Asshole."

"I'm going back to the station-house. You and the moose keep a close lookout for bears, OK?"

"Yeah. See ya in the morning."

"G'night."
