A Whigle's State of Mind

I had a lot of time over the last week to try to get into Lyle's head.  To be perfectly honest with you, I'm not sure it's someplace I really want to be.  I'd like to say I learned a little something about what makes him tick, but there's just no telling what that might be.

The conversations went something like this:

Me:  "So Lyle, tell me about your puppyhood."

Lyle:  "Why do you want to know?  What are you up to?  Are you breathing my air again?"

Me:  "No, I'm not breathing at all.  I just want to get to know you better."

Lyle:  "Why?  So you can steal my identity and run up charges on my Visa?"

I didn't even know Lyle had a Visa.  So there really is a lot I don't know about him. 

Once I actually did get him to talk about his puppyhood a little:

Lyle:  "I was adorable."

Me:  "What makes you say that?"

Lyle:  "Hel-lo!  Have you not seen the pictures?  Look at the pictures then tell me if you don't think I was adorable.  Cutest puppy ever."

I'm afraid I'm letting everyone down, but I just don't think I'm going to be the one who can unlock Lyle's psyche.  I really tried, but when I started saying things like "superfun" I knew it was time to stop.  Sorry.
