WonderWife™ and I were sharing a rare moment snuggling on the couch watching TV together when we heard something over the baby monitor. We mute the TV and both lean in the direction of the monitor, which is what you’re required to do when you’re listening to something really intently.
“I think he’s meowing,” I say to WW™.
“No,” she replies. “He was a banana today.”
“But he was a kitty cat tonight.”
We both sit silently for a moment, pondering this.
“The scary thing,” I said. “ Is that to us, this is a completely normal conversation.”
