|Talk to our three cats
in high-pitched tones.
I have had a variety of pets and orphaned wildlife through the years -- in fact, a friend once dubbed me Saint Nice (nee see) of Assisi. Currently we are kept by these 3, who tail us through the house like a small herd: Chelsea, a needful and jealously protective thing who literally growls at the sound of a doorbell, either the real or TV variety; Tonka, a ruddy Abysinian who "goes with the flow", as long as no one coughs; and Nora, a princess who will not deign attention outside her specified realms.

My only sibling, a younger sister,
is a quintessential Texas story-teller. She can start making a point with
an anecdote on Monday, which leads her to 10 - 20 tangential anecdotes over
the next 2 days, but on Wednesday she winds it up with the point of her
originating anecdote. Totally awesome -- and irritating as hell. . . . she's
single, by the way.
