Interior Monologue That Started Off About Doberman Pinschers

Where have you gone you Pit Bulls of the 80’s? Sleek beast-brutes with
names like Diablo and Zeus, canine shadows patrolling patios and bully-
ing backyards as if guarding against anything that resembles friendly.
My theory is: Tom Selleck is hording you. He has you locked up some-
where in Magnum’s mansion masterminding how this lost litter of
Lucipher’s loins can create a comeback. No one would ever suspect you
Magnum P.I. Because if you could pull off the combination of stingy
khaki shorts Hawaiian shirts and hairy legs, combined with a sublime
stache and black best friend, you’re summer Honolulu shores at dusk
golden. Maybe even Hasselhoff and K.I.T. T. are in on it— an old-school
reunion of killer cars and heavenly heartthrobs deciding how to sic this
former kennel of all the rage onto society. I see it now. By day your red
Ferrari races down Hana Highway, chest hair blowing like palm trees
during a bitter monsoon. By night you’re schmoozing with Hollywood
heavyweights eating filet mignon in an 18 star restaurant, while Hassel-
hoff slurs his words and eats a cold hamburger from the ground.
