Lord Dormir: What are you doing?
Me: Um, sitting in bed, playing games on my phone. Also, Facebook and Twitter.
Lord Dormir: Studies have shown that using electronic devices prior to bedtime makes it more difficult to fall asleep and can lead to insomnia. Just saying.
Me: What studies? Name one.
Lord Dormir: Cat studies. I’m sure you wouldn’t have heard of them. Very well-respected among cats.
Lord Dormir: Studies have also shown that petting cats is relaxing, and can therefore help cure insomnia.
Sir Oliver: It is known.
Me: Right. I’ll just be getting back to what I was doing then.
Lord Dormir: If you’re not going to make a serious effort to sleep, then I’m going to nap on your pillow.
Me: Do you have to take up the WHOLE pillow?
Lord Dormir: Yes. Otherwise, how will you learn?
Me: Excuse me, I need to use the bathroom.
Sir Oliver: HEY! This door is closed. I need that door to be open.
Me: Kinda busy in here Sir Oliver.

Me: Wait! All that fuss about the door being closed, and you don’t even want to go in there now that it’s open?
Sir Oliver: I never said I wanted to go in there. I just said I needed the door open, and now it’s open. My work here is done.
Selby: What’s wrong Mama?
Me: I can’t seem to shake this artist’s block. I want to draw more cartoons, but I can’t seem to finish anything.
Emerson: Ugh, I know just what you mean. Sometimes I really want to scratch an itch but I just can’t reach it.
Me: Um, yeah – sort of like that. My friend Cherish put this drawing on Facebook today to encourage me:
Amanda: Well, I guess I better head out now. I have to work early tomorrow.
Me: Okay. Thanks for visiting!
Emerson & Selby: Ooo, you’re jingling keys. Keys mean The Car! Are we going somewhere? Let’s go let’s go LETSGO!
Me: *still wearing my coat after coming home from work* Hello, Sir Oliver! Good to see you.
Sir Oliver: Yes yes, hello etc. You humans always have to waste time with pleasantries don’t you?
Me: *watching The Muppet Show with the kids.*
Sir Oliver: =o.o=
Me: Can I help you with something?
Sir Oliver: Your sweater.
Sir Oliver: I believe it is time for me to lounge here on the bed.
Lord Dormir: Pardon me, you appear to need some grooming.
