Party Trick

Thinking of Maggie and kitty cats reminded me of one of our best party tricks. Maggie was a very smart girl but, honestly, I think Mabel is thismuch smarter.

Maggie could never discern between the words "kitty cat" and anything that rhymed with it.

So, when we had company, I would look at Mags adoringly and say, "Maggie May, you make my heart go pitty pat."

Maggie would take off racing for the nether regions of the back deck, patrolling for kitties.

My audience would be a bit perplexed and then I would add my punch line: "Funny, that's the same reaction I get from men."

Can I use your line? My little dog does the same thing.

Any time Annie!

I did the doggy "pitty pat" thing with my dog, in front of my husband. He thought it was pretty funny but he, of course, already knows the dog heard it to be "kitty-cat".

Do you have a knitting project in mind?

Very funny! And clever of you to recognize Maggie's talent for being your "straight dog."
