Are those even real words, dad?
They are now, says I.
Why, whatever do they mean?
They're noises you've been making lately. This is something new-ish.
I'm sorry, but I don't know what you're talking about. If you're gonna just make fun of me I'm cutting this off right now.
No, listen. You see, I'm getting up there myself and mom's not far behind, though she's a youngster to you and me. I know a thing or two about noises one makes when getting up from sitting for a while or settling in for the night. Noises one makes when getting out of bed in the morning. Y'know, anything that takes some effort. The joints just aren't what they used to be.
Well, if you're gonna make fun of me for making noises I could do a whole post about some noises you make all the time.
You got me there, old girl. I'm just saying you've been making these funny noises lately, like when you curl up next to or on mom for the night, after you look up from a snooze in annoyance, give us the evil eye & then settle back in, that kind of thing. Kind of reminds me of a balloon or a cushion deflating or something.
So I groan occasionally. You did it this morning getting out of bed. Remember- you and mom picked me over all them young'uns way back when. You knew you were getting the whole package.
I know, I know. All I'm saying is, this is something new. Way back when, you didn't make these noises, that's all. It's a new-ish thing for you, and I've gotta say- it's pretty darn amusing to mom and I. I've wanted to get a video clip or two so I could share it here 'cause it's so darn entertaining, but, well, you know- the whole timing thing with cats can be tricky.
Yeah, well you're lucky I'm not able to use that thing. I'd get footage of you walking around
singing caterwauling and post it for all to hear. That's sure to draw a few laughs. Sorry for the blog detour, y'all. Someone woke a little earlier than he'd like to have (of course it had nothing to do with little ol' me) and his creativity is still snuggled all nice and warm in bed. Come on big guy, time to feed me.
