On Being On The Can

ME: I have good news about my book!

NICK: I was on the can when you called earlier.

ME: Did you hear me? I said I had good news about my book.

NICK: Yeah, we went to Djoko’s funeral today. Then I came back and lost my ass at bingo.

ME: (SILENCE)

NICK: So did you hear anything about your book?
