Well, I know it starts with “C” because the answer to 6 down was DISC, which ends with “C.”
Hmmm … Feline … starts with “C” …
CHEETAH! No, that’s seven letters. I need three.
Hey, Joe … Joe! … JOE!!! What’s a three-letter word for feline that starts with “C”? Oh, come on. This will only take a second.
You can sleep later.
I didn’t hear you. What?
(Huff) No, I don’t need a four-letter word that starts with “F” and ends with “K.” I hope you wake up with a backache.
(Slam of door. Frown.)
“K”? Is that possible? DISC could be DISK, after all. No. I’m going to stick with “C.” Something in my bones says I’m right, although it could be my arthritis.
Wait! The answer to 7 down was HOT. HOT ends with “T.” That means: I need a three-letter word for feline that starts with “C” and ends with “T.” Hmmm …
Jenna … Jenna! … JENNA!!!
Please get off of your cell phone. I need a three-letter word for feline that starts with “C” and ends with “T.”
No, I don’t want you to text it to me.
(Slam door. Growl.) Teenagers!
(Look at clock.)
Of dear. I’ve forgotten to feed Millie.
(Walk to kitchen. Open can.)
Here kitty, kitty! Here kitty, kitty. Dinner!
(Bend down. Pet.)
Do you happen to know a three-letter word for feline? Starts with “C,” ends with “T.”
That’s it, clean your own box!
(Slam door. Drive to attorney.) I want to cut everyone out of my will. Yep, that’s what I said. C-U-T.
(Epiphany) Cut! Three letters, starts with “C” and ends with “T.”
(Leave office. Return to car. Look for keys. Can’t find keys. Call AA. Whoops! Redial. AAA.)
(Drive to therapist.)
