Sometimes, when my wife is away at work, I find myself talking to my cat as though I were a supervillain and she my loyal but simpleminded henchman.
I was just heating up a mug of hot chocolate, and was shouting at her: "We could be on the brink of something extraordinary here! A shot of vanilla syrup in hot chocolate? It's never even been attempted! The audacity of what we are about to do; It will shock the whole world! BY GOD MAN, DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MEANS?!"
It just now dawned on me that I may need to get out more.
