MS: what? I'm busy. I only need three more rows to finish.
KY: Doorbell Guest!
MS: KY, I'm not paying you to announce guests. Go deal with whomever it is.
(some time passes)
MS: KY! Where are you? I need a new pen!
Miss Snark hauls sorry ass out of chair, focuses eyeballs, notices it's dark outside, and looks around for the missing hound.
Note on credenza (in purple ink):
Dearest Miss Snark,
I'm so sorry I missed you. Didn't you get my email? I flew up from a location shoot to take you to the new Choclateria. Your faithful companaion said you were busy with something called Sudoku which translates as IdiotTimeWaster? I didn't exactly understand his yapps.
(sound of splat ias Miss Snark consigns her sorry self to the Brady Westwater Memorial Vat).
(sound of door closing as Killer Yapp heads to the after hours dog run and round of canoodling with a fetching Pomeranion minx).
