SH: Our cats are cute.
Me: Other people think their cats are cute, but ours really are cute.
SH: Yes. And sweet.
Me: Maybe we should make our cats model so they can earn money. Then you could quit your job.*
SH: We can't make our cats work!
Me: Oh yes we can.
SH: Besides, what about your bestselling novel? I think I am ready.***
Me: That's going to take some time to write. Besides, it takes a while for the money to come in. That Jennifer who wrote the Bitter is the New Black still temped the first two years. The cats can start generating cash right away.
SH: They are cute.
Me: And cooperative.
SH: Not really.
Me: Oh. Yeah. You're right.
SH: Guess I'd better get out of bed and go to work.
* SH's job has been really tough lately - super long hours** because they are short staffed and he gets stuff from the guy in France who needs an answer by the next day IN FRANCE which is just six hours away here but hey, who isn't in the same situation right now? At least he has a job and thank goodness for that. SH is a hard worker. I am lucky to have him.
** Like until 5:30 a.m. OK, some of it is goofing off (espn.com, woot.com) but a lot of it is working.
*** If I write The Book, it will be tell all, which means Certain People will never talk to us again, which is just fine with me, but SH is the one who has to make that call. If you know what I mean.
