Snark and Circumstance
Just a few random thoughts...
* For the last few weeks as I've been getting dressed, Geoffie as watched me put my bra on, then stood on her hind legs and made little digging motions with her forepaws against my stomach. It's very playful, very adorable, and very much a pain in the ass.
And I had no idea where it came from.
Then tonight I watched Mate play with her, and he teased her until she sat up on her haunches and made little digging motions with her forepaws.
"You!" I said, laughing. "You're why I can't get dressed in peace!"
"Naw-- that's not what I"m teaching her!" He put his hands behind his back. "See?"
Yeah, I saw. I saw her sit up on her haunches and try to find China through his stomach, THAT'S what I saw.
When I was done laughing he said, "Well, you gotta admit it's cute!"
Yes. It is. Really damned cute. Can't lie.
* Squish is at science camp and I went to snuggle with ZoomBoy as he pet Steve on our bed.
"Hey, Mom--what's it called when you pet a cat without paying a fee?"
My eyes got big. My brain said something really inappropriate and I stared at my son in horror.
"I have no idea," I rasped, hoping against hope it wasn't what I thought it was.
"Petty theft!" he crowed.
"What did you think it was?"
"Petty theft works. Good one son. Heh heh heh."
