"Whatness" by Benjamin Crowell

Appeared in Asimov's.  Online.

An alien being accidentally erases the human spacetime, except two:  A man and his dog.  The being discusses with the man what kind of universe did he want.  But the man dithers, weighing, uncertain.  So the being turns to the consciousness left.

Light humor but with a point.  Purposefully unrealized universe--in a classic SF mode.
