Need A Minute

Hu-Dad asked Roscoe a question but got only a “need a minute” response once something rustled in the woods behind us.

need a minute

Roscoe and Hu-Dad chatted in the backyard, but something moved in the woods behind the house. A twig snapped and Roscoe went into focus mode. Hu-Dad asked him what it was, but Roscoe brushed him off with a “I need a minute here” reply. No answer ever came as to what moved.
