M-O-O-N More

"M-o-o-n, that spells, no more expletive deleted Stephen King movies."

Christmas time, but Mike and Jerry had decided not to visit family this go round since both had to be to work the day after. On Jerry's suggestion, they had spent the weekend seeing how many Stephen King films they could watch before one of them cracked. Mike, it seemed was on the verge of snapping.

"Did you just say expletive deleted?" Jerry asked.

Mike shifted around, "I've been swearing too much lately. I'm trying to ween myself off."

"Is this because of Jessica?" Jerry spoke through the widest of grins.

"I overheard her saying she thought cursing was a crutch for people with poor vocabularies."

"Bananas and strawberry short cake," Jerry replied. Only he didn't actually use those words. What Jerry said is not fit to be printed.

Both Jerry and Mike laughed.

"Ah... So, you really ready to stop watching? There's still the Langoliers..."

Mike stood debating internally.

"'That dog won't bark'" he finally quoted before giving in, "Alright, one more."
