My dog Rexy and I were far out on the Ocean in our boat when it began to sink. We tried patching the hole with gum. We had a lot of packs of Bazooka Joe in the cupboard because it’s our favorite. We chewed and stuck the gum in the boat’s gushing hole. But I guess it was the salt water that made the gum unstick.

We had to abandon the boat and got in the rubber raft. The rubber raft was nice because it was smaller then the big boat and so required much less work. We both fell asleep after being in it for a few minutes.

When we woke up it was night. We both remarked about the dense glowing star-filled sky.

Rexy hummed a song. I felt like I’d heard it before, but I couldn’t tell. Rexy said, “I made it up.”
