Why Are We Inside?

On a pretty spring day, Hu-Dad ignored Roscoe’s subtle hints to stop work and go play, so now he is just openly asking, Why are we inside?

Are you done with your busyness yet? - why are we inside?
Are you done with your busyness yet?

The long morning walk was hours before. The mid-day yard time has come and gone. Now we are waiting on the long afternoon walk, but Hu-Dad is consumed in his busyness. On this beautiful spring day, Roscoe’s look asks the question we all wonder, “Why are we inside?”

    Roscoe P-I can’t answer that question because I don’t know how much MORE Hu-Dad needs to do with his busyness before he can take you for your walk? BUT I could NOT ignore those beautiful eyes of yours for too long!
