Yesterday it occurred to me that

most of my daily conversations are with the cats and those conversations usually consist of rhetorical questions. Reading that, I now wonder, if only one person is speaking is it a conversation? And if it is a rhetorical question, where no answer is expected, is it a conversation?

My “conversations” with the cats:

Are you crazy?
Must you be everywhere I am?
What have you got now?
Do you want the cheese or not?
Move your fat butt.
Leave her A-lone!
Do that one more time and I swear I’m gonna kill you.
Didn’t I just tell you to get down? Am I not speaking English?
Get OFF!

Often the conversations are a bit more involved and my husband will respond. I tell him I was talking to one of the cats and he will say “Oh, I didn’t mean to butt in” And he is not being facetious.

I think my husband and I have to get out more!
