Cro: "I've cooked some minced Beef for Bok. I'll put it to cool in the microwave until his supper time; will you make sure you remember that it's there?".
Lady Magnon: "Can you remind me".
Cro: "What; you want me to remind you, to remember that it's there?".
Lady Magnon: "Yes".
Cro: "Why don't you remind me, to remind you, to remember that it's there".
Lady Magnon: "Now you're being silly".
Cro: "I am silly".
Lady Magnon: So, will you remind me?".
Cro: "No; you'll have to remind yourself".
It's reassuring to know that other people have conversations like this. So, did Bok get his mince?ReplyDelete
He did; and loved it. A special treat.Delete
Stick this note on the microwave with a fridge magnet:ReplyDelete
Dear Bok, your dinner is in the microwave, Cro.
That way, Bok can remind you if you both forget.
Now, why didn't I think of that!Delete
Sort of conversation we have. Then we open the door to whatever (don't own a microwave) three days later and are overwhelmed by s certain whiff. Though on this case the dog, or cat, might have reminded us by then that they were a little hungry!ReplyDelete
I've done that too, usually with a half-eaten dessert.Delete
Why don't you just buy a tin of dog food?ReplyDelete
Are you kidding? He lives on Foie Gras, juicy steaks, Roast Beef, and Paté.Delete
Pedigree Chum in jelly plus bix - nothing else. Easy for me and she is a creature of habit so we are both satisfied. PS Not even the odd titbit.ReplyDelete
Bok needs re-training.Delete
Ha ha. I love this conversation. Coincidentally I just learnt that apparently one of the first things dogs' genes changed to was to the ability to subsist on Homo sapiens's food...ReplyDelete
That sounds like Bok, although he's not too fussy.Delete
Why didn't you just give Bok his supper yourself and shut up?ReplyDelete
What; and not have the fun of annoying Lady M? You must be joking!Delete
That reminds me of, "Hold the baby while I put the meat in the oven".ReplyDelete
I think I know what you mean.Delete
In case you didn't know, a little later one parent says to the other, "Hang on, I've got the meat".Delete
I remembered the gist; I just think I'd heard the tale differently.Delete
Thank you for the wonderful chuckle...Now quit picking on the Lovely Lady M.ReplyDelete
Hi Denim... no word for some time. Good to know you're still out there!Delete
