Heart Melter.

When I woke Joe up this morning he was feeling very confused.

Me: “Good morning, Joe. It’s time for breakfast!”

Joe just about shot out of bed: “Oh, thank God you’re here! I’m lost!”

I gave him a big smile: “You’re not lost Joe. You’re at home, safe and cozy in your warm bed.”

Joe looked up at me with the sweetest grin: “You know what? I don’t even know your name, and I don’t have a clue where I am right now, but there’s something about your smile that makes me feel right at home.”

Dot: “Not that kind of accident.”

Joe: “I don’t know why I ask you about stuff. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Dot: “I know more than you.”

Joe: “No you don’t.”

Dot: “Yes I do.”
