What's Happening to Me?

Oh my god, I barely know myself. I think I am becoming a DOG PERSON. I have left the appropriate messages on my therapist's voice mail.

I find myself going home at lunch time or working at home instead of going into the office so Nemo won't be alone. I get excited when he poops or pees outside. I speak to him in a strange high-pitched voice. Today, I left the TV on (Animal Planet) so that he would feel less lonely.

My cats look at me like I am a freak. Maybe they're right.

I report from the very highest authority when I tell you that the strange, high-pitched voice used by humans when speaking to adored animal companions is called

MOTHERESE.

Kate, of Le Monde de Kate du Fromage, told me this. Therefore, it is true.
