Zero Is Still A Number

Ruby: Ginger? Are you home?

Ginger: Yup. What’s up?

Ruby: I saw this and I just had to show it to you!

Ginger: “You have 0 issues left.” What is this?

Ruby: Technically, it’s a magazine subscription notice Fly got in the mail. It’s saying we need to renew. But I just had to share!

Ginger: Ruby?

Ruby: Yeah?


Ruby: What?

Ginger: You still have issues. Special Ruby Issues that I wouldn’t trade for anything, but you have issues, nonetheless.

Ruby: Sweet as that is, could we just say that Fly has issues? It was his magazine…

Ginger: We could say that…

Ruby: Thank you.

Ginger: But it doesn’t make it less applicable to you.

Ruby: Drat.

Ginger: Own your issues, Ruby! Own them!

Ruby: Oh, I do. Just not that magazine’s offering of issues.

Ginger: Is it Mad Scientist Monthly?

Ruby: What?

Ginger: I could see Fly subscribing to that.

Ruby: …yeah…except Fly is more into working with patients than doing research.

Ginger: Mad Scientists can work with patients. Cthulu-frogs are patients, too, Ruby.

Ruby: Cthulu-frogs?

Ginger: Those are frogs that mad scientists bred with tiny squids and so now they’ve got frog legs in back and tentacles up front. And three eyes. No one knows why.

Ruby: Does it squirt ink whenever it jumps?

Ginger: I don’t know. We should ask Fly!

Ruby: He’s going to forbid me from hanging out with you for this, y’know.

Ginger: …hey, Ruby?

Ruby: *sigh* You really want a Cthulu-frog now, don’t you?

Ginger: I’d name him Lovecraft and call him Crafty for short!!

Ruby: Yeah, I’m definitely getting forbidden from your presence for this.
