Realizing that my verbal repetition probably far surpasses that of most people's upon entering their apartments/houses, I grabbed my camera today to record. I mean, it didn't end when I stopped recording, but I didn't want to kill your ears. In the interest of total honesty, it's a half hour later and it's still going on. The beauty of it is that the cat doesn't care one bit. I'd guess that 99% or more of our conversations revolve around these same two or three phrases. And, as you can see, Elsie knows exactly what to expect and how to respond. That's my girl!
