Me: Mmm. Can it wait? I'm a little busy right now....
00F: You're not busy. You're looking at geese on petfinder.com.
Me (closing my laptop): *sigh*
00F: So what's all this email I'm getting about you and Woglinde moving into the house? You know perfectly well that she doesn't want to live in the house. She likes it here in the barn.
Me: I know!!!! That's why I want to find her a replacement goose, so that she's not lonely when I move into the house!!!!
00F: Look, you know she does not want a replacement goose. OK?
00F: I don't have to remind you who snuggled with you when you were sick, do I? Who preened your feathers for you?
00F: That's right. So you're not leaving her here, with or without a replacement goose.
00F: Whoa! Calm down. Tell me, what is it that's so appealing about the house?
Me: *sniff sniff* Well, for one, the stereo....
Me: I never get to play my Coldplay CDs up here!!!!! And if I lived at the house, I could play them all the time!!!
00F: Well, actually you couldn't.
Me: What??? Why not?
00F: Because I hate Coldplay.
Me: What?!?!?!??!?!!? That's not true!! You always play Coldplay in the car!!!!!!!!!
00F: Only when you're riding with me! And that's because I know you like them! I'm sorry, man. I couldn't deal with Coldplay playing all the time in the house. That would be a nightmare.
00F: Look, if you had told me this earlier, we could have bought you a stereo to play up here in the barn.
Me: A stereo!!!!! My own? Really!!!!????
00F: Do you want to go pick one out this weekend?
Me: *tail wriggle*
00F: Ok, then. Why don't you do a little research online before we go? I think you'll need one with an infinite repeat function.
Me: And a subwoofer?
00F: If you must.
Me: Viva la vida!!!!!!
