Jaded Snapper: My darling wife, I, the third best photographer on the Evening Snooze, have created art in our garden. I photographed our dogs, just fo you!
WifeBoss: Well that’s lovely darling, I’ve been waiting for ages for you to do some pictures for me
JadedSnapper: All the more for you to appreciate the time I took to do a picture, outside of working hours for no reward beyond your pleasure
WifeBoss: Yes it was selfless of you. So let’s see them then.

JS: …
WifeBoss: Jade?
