Me: Hush Pearl!!
Pearl: Ahem, are you going to heat up your lunch?
Me: Not right now. I’m not hungry yet.
Pearl: I’m hungry.
Me: Pearl, you are not hungry. I gave you kibble.
Pearl: Kibble is for dogs. I can’t eat that stuff!
Me: Pearl, you are a dog.
Pearl: I AM NOT!
Me: You bark, you pee on everything outside and you beg for food constantly.
Pearl: So does Daddy but you don’t call him a dog!
Me: He…Why….No….Argh! I did not marry a dog.
Pearl: Ah Hah! So you admit that I am not a dog?
Me: Umm.. no…you are still a dog.
Pearl: Do I not sit on the sofa? Do I not sleep in the big bed? Does Grandma-ma not come to see me? I rest my case.
Me: ………….I……….oh………you….. I don’t even know what to say.
Pearl: Good, now are you going to heat up our lunch?
Me: I don’t know what I was thinking. I’ll get right on that Pearl.
