It’s a Gift 
1. “I want ten pounds of cumquats!” (Spelled c-u-m-q-u-a-t-s.)
2. Coconut Slinky.
3. He looks forlornly away as his family deserts him. Sits on the fender of the car, which disintegrates. Then on the steps of the shack. Takes a pull from his flask. The dog comes over and licks his ear. He pets it gently.
