Weekend Assignment #17: Through some unexplained miracle, your pet or pets gain the mental capacity for speech for exactly the length of a single sentence. What do you think that sentence would be and why? For those of you without pets, please use a former pet or the pet of someone you know. If you've never ever had a pet, well, first, you're kind of odd, but second, then just imagine what a generic dog or cat might say. Caveat: Don't say that they'd say "I love you." I mean, really. Of course they love you. You know. They know you know. You know they know you know. And so on.
Extra Credit: You get one question to ask your pet that (presumably) it would answer. What's the question?
Miya, our 11 year old chihuahua would say, "Why on earth did you bring that darned new ankle biter into the house: I liked being Only Dog!
Roxy, our tiny, brand new, 11 month old chihuahua, would say, Tough s**t, Miya, I am here to stay, get used to it!"
Extra credit: I would ask Miya " For goddeses sake, what we can do to make you stop whining from 8pm 'til midnight?"
I would ask Roxy, "What kind of life did you have before we rescued you?"
