Me: It’s not going to work, you two.
Ducky: What?
Me: Stare all you want, you’re not getting any of my food.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Maybe I’m staring at you because I love you.
Me: Maybe. But Scooter is staring right at my tuna.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Perhaps she has noticed something untoward about said tuna.
Me: …
Ducky: Cats are not like us humans. They have strange, inexplicable powers.
Me: ”Us humans,” huh?
Ducky: Perhaps she has noticed something about that tuna that makes it unsafe for human consumption and is trying to warn us.
Me: …
Ducky: Being unable to communicate due to her lack of both language and expressive eyebrows, she is warning in the only way possible. Through the power of staring.
Me: …
Ducky: Staring is a cat’s greatest power.
Me: …
Ducky: During the Bronze Age Egyptians…
Me: You’re making this up.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Cats like fish.
Me: That much is true.
Ducky: And the cat has not learned that the key to getting food from you is to give attention to you and be cute while appearing to not be interested in your meal at all.
Me: …
Ducky: I mean the cat doesn’t love you unconditionally the way I do.
Me: …
Ducky: What food?
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Me: You look happy, Ducky!
Ducky: I am! Thanks for making it cooler in here!
Me: You’re welcome. But I didn’t really do it. Summer just ended. Finally.
Ducky: Well, thanks for not stopping summer from ending!
Me: I always appreciate your steadfast faith in my omnipotence. At least when good things happen.
Ducky: You look happy too!
Me: Yeah. I had a good week.
Ducky: That’s rare.
Me: Probably not as rare as I let myself believe. But this week really was good. And I’m going to let myself be happy about it.
Ducky: Good.
Me: But this is the best part of my week.
Ducky: Lying on the floor?
Me: With you. Yup.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Maybe your weeks really aren’t that great.
Me: No, Duck. I’ve just reached the point that I know what really makes me happy. I know what matters. And I forget sometime, and sometimes I let things that aren’t important to me upset me. But I’ve gotten better at letting myself enjoy the moments that matter.
Ducky: …
Me: Like lying on the floor with my best buddy.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Does rubbing my head and belly matter?
Me: It makes you happy. So it matters a lot.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

Me: Why are you looking at me like that?
Ducky: Don’t do it.
Me: Don’t do what?
Ducky: I can tell when you’re up to something and I know what it is.
Me: You’re being silly.
Ducky: Uh huh.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: You like your wood patch?
Ducky: Yes.
Me: Nice and cool?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m comfy. Don’t do it.
Me: Don’t do what? I’m not doing anything. I just think it’s cute that when it gets warm in here you lie on that patch of wood paneling in front of the door to stay cool.
Ducky: …
Me: That’s all.

Ducky: Nice day, Daddy.
Me: Nice day, Ducky.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Is that all, Daddy?
Me: I think so.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: No deep thoughts to contemplate? No meaning to find?
Me: I don’t think so, Ducky. Not today.
Ducky: Just you and me being content on a nice day?
Me: Yup. That’s all.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That is a nice day.
Me: Yup. Today has value just because it is.
