Scenes from home

SAMMY (the Siamese cat, who bleats rather than meows): Maaaaaa
ME: Maaaaaa
SAMMY: Maaaaaa
ME: Maaaaaa
SAMMY: Maaaaaa
ME: She keeps responding. I wonder what she thinks I'm saying.
MY SISTER: She's probably correcting your pronunciation.

In other language-related matters, my mother observed earlier today that the term cul de sac means, roughly translated from French, "ass bag".*

I am deeply proud of my genes.

*Of course, it is literally "ass of bag," but I suppose I will have to let that little detail slide.
