Dad went to the pet store today to buy more canned food for us. As soon as he came home I overheard this conversation:
DAD: It's a good thing you didn't go because they had alot of kittens there today.
MOM: Really? I want to go see!
DAD: Well, you can go see and give them a donation or something but you can't bring anymore cats home.
I've heard "that" before. And yeah, Dad, give Mom a reason to go see the kittens. Why didn't you give them a donation?
MOM: Like how many were there? What did they look like?
DAD: There were alot, probably a dozen or so. Different kinds, with long and short hair.
MOM: Maybe I'll go see. No, maybe not.
DAD: Yeah, you probably shouldn't.
Mom spent the next hour talking herself out of going and she didn't. Why did Dad tell Mom anyway when he knows that she knows that the rescue place is there every Saturday? They're in a separate room at the pet store and he could have easily shopped for our food without stopping to look at them himself, and he also stopped to look at the dogs that were available for adoption.
Well, we know all those kitties and doggies are currently safe in their foster homes.
