(an overheard conversation the other night at dinner with friends. Delicious lasagna; Garfield would have had a field day)
"Don't tease her, tease, tease... You hide the ball above the TV and claim that she's watching the Red Sox; you hide it under a napkin while everyone is engaged in talk waiting for the apple crisp; you hide the yellow ball under your shoe, rolling it back and forth, and when questioned about it you say, Oh, I didn't know it was there. Tease, tease, tease."
When he leaves the room, she says, "You know what? Annie follows him around the house constantly seeking his attention. He would never tell you that. You know what? He teases, but deep down inside he really loves that dog."
This fellow has never been an animal lover, ever, as I remember. He is soooo lucky! Annie is a BEAUTY!
