I was sitting at a restaurant, waiting for my lunch companion to arrive, when WonderWife™ called.
“Do you have a second?” she asked.
“Listen to this,” she said. “Sprout, say ‘I love you.' Say ‘I love you.’"
I could hear the rustling sound of the phone being shifted about. In the background Sprout’s voice came through, uttering something with the same cadence and syllables.
It sounded like, “Ri roooh roo.”
“Baby,” I said to my wife. “You know those people who think their dogs are saying ‘I love you’ and send it to America’s Funniest Videos? You’re doing that right now.”
