100WW — One Sick Puppy

B6B36ED4-FCBA-4AB6-A29C-5C2EA5553A8F“Tina, I carved our initials and a heart in this tree,” Matt said.

Tina looked closely at the carved letters in the tree’s trunk. “What does ‘MAIV’ stand for?”

“That’s me, Matt Anderson the fourth,” he said proudly.

“And ‘TSWV’?”

“Tina Susan Wilson,” Matt said. “But I screwed up the carving a little.”

“And ‘NYIAJ’?”

“New York in April,” Matt explained. “Remember last April? The ‘J’ was supposed to be an exclamation mark, but I screwed that up, too.”

“And the red color?”

“I accidentally sliced my finger, so I painted the letters with my blood.”

“You’re one sick puppy.”
