There are other idiots out there like us!

One of our friends came to visit last night, and as usual we spent the night laughing our butt's off! Dale and Kerri (who was at home last night in Joburg) are without a doubt two of the funniest people I know, on top of being two of our best friends.
Like us, Dale and Kerri dont have any kids yet, but we are both proud parents of furkids (yes, dogs). So, as normal parents do, the conversation led to us discussing our little ones. In our case it is Phoebe and Elvis, and in theirs, it is Oscar and Molly. They have never met, for two reasons: 1) They live in Joburg and 2) Elvis would eat them. But that aside, in my head they are all best friends, yes I have even sent a Christmas card addressed to their furkids, from all of our furkids.

Anyway, I have often thought that Kerri and Dale have kinda just gone along with Francois' and my little obsession with our dogs, sorry I mean furkids. But I was surprised to find out that Dale and Kerri also talk through the dogs. Francois and I can have a whole conversation with each other through Elvis and Phoebe, it usually goes something like this:

Me: "Elvis tell your Daddy what an awesome day we had today!"
F: "Really my boy, what did you guys get up too?"
Me: "Well, Mom made the most divine cupcakes and then one of the neighbours did this and then etc etc etc...."


You get my drift.

Yes I know it is BEYOND pathetic, and we don't do it all the time, but it does happen. I am so glad to now know that we are not the only ones. So there are other idiots out there like us! Please tell me there are more of us, are we the only ones that do this??

I am husbandless tonight, Francois is in Joburg, so guess who I will be talking to all night...
Our furkids, Phoebe and Elvis

...except with no one answering back :-(

All I can say is that Kerri is one ahead of us, cos Elvis does not have a song of his own, just yet....
