Well, That's Just Great
wellthatsjustducky:

Me: Hey, Ducky. You and Scooter seem to be getting along better these days.
Ducky: …
Me: Or am I misreading your subtle body language cues?
Ducky: Humor. Always with the humor. Hey, Daddy, ask me, “What’s the secret to great comedy?”
Me: What’s the secret to g…
Ducky: TIMING!
Me: Well played. So you’re saying now is not the time…
Ducky: The cat is in my room.
Me: Technically the cat and you are in my room.
Ducky: …
Me: And the Lady’s room.
Ducky: Technically you’re a jerk.
Me: Aw…
Ducky: She’s been drinking my water.
Me: The Lady? That seems unlikely.
Ducky: Always with the comedy.
Me: It’s how I interact with the universe.
Ducky: How lucky for the universe. The cat has been drinking my water.
Me: I noticed. Not sure what that’s about.
Ducky: I know what it is. She’s trying to assert dominance by showing ownership.
Me: You think?
Ducky: She doesn’t need to drink my water. She has water in her room.
Me: Once again, she has water in a room upstairs but it’s not her room.
Ducky: Apparently she’s not the only one trying to show dominance by taking ownership.
Me: …
Ducky: See, I’m suggesting that the cat and you…
Me: Yes. I got it. Very funny.
Ducky: It was more wry observation that straight comedy.
Me: …
Ducky: You know what is funny?
Me: What?
Ducky: When you pick up the cat.
Me: Scooter’s not a big fan of being picked up. Makes her unhappy.
Ducky: Comedy is time plus tragedy. So wait about five seconds and give it a shot.
Me: Comedy is tragedy plus time. You got the order wrong.
Ducky: In an additive process order is irrelevant. But even if it wasn’t you’re forgetting one thing.
Me: And that would be?
Ducky: GET THE CAT OUT OF MY ROOM!
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Ducky: New tree?
Me: Yup. The lady brought it from her old house.
Ducky: Smells like the cat.
Me: Scooter used to live in that house, yes.
Ducky: We were looking to further increase the cat stink in here?
Me: It doesn’t smell like cat in here.
Ducky: Acclimation, thy name is human nose.
Me: …
Ducky: See, dogs have good sniffers.
Me: Yes, I know.
Ducky: What was wrong with our old tree?
Me: Remember how it used to fall on you?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That’s not a Christmas tradition everywhere?
Me: No. Just here.
Ducky: Can’t say I’ll miss it.
Me: Me neither.
Ducky: We should start a new tradition!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: We are not going to try to make the new tree fall on Scooter.
Ducky: I just want her to feel like part of the family during the cherished holiday season.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: And I enjoy upsetting that cat.
Me: I know you do. But no cat squashing.
Ducky: Okay, Mr. Grinch. I love you.
Me: Love you too, Ducky.

Caught Scooter in the middle of her monthly fire extinguisher check. Scooter is passionate about fire safety. She loves to remind me what P.A.S.S. stands for. “P” PULL the pin! “A” AIM the nozzle! “S” Get SEAFOOD! “S” Give it to SCOOTER!

Me: I think Scooter spends more time on the computer than me.
Ducky: I think she’s trying to steal my identity online.
Me: I doubt it. Very few cats have shown a propensity for identity theft. I just think she likes the hot.
Ducky: It’s 900 degrees in here.
Me: Almost.
Ducky: Cats are stupid.
Me: Perhaps. But dogs aren’t geniuses either.
Ducky: We’re smarter than cats.
Me: Really?
Ducky: Yes.
Me: Did you figure out what you’re sneaking up on Scooter to do yet?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: It takes a special kind of genius to improvise.
Me: True statement. Good luck with that. I love you, Ducky.

So apparently the three other mammals in my house like to play “This is what the crime scene will look like when Ag snaps one day.”
