SH: Wow. Laverne sure whines a lot.
Me: I know.
SH: If we don't feed her before we leave for our walk, do you think she'll keep whining once we're gone?
Me: Like if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there, does it make a sound?
Me: I don't know. Does anyone hear you whine when I am not around? Do you whine when I'm not around?
