Hi, Iggy.

“‘Scuse me.”


“Scooch over, please.”

This okay?

“More, please.”

How’s this?

“A little more, please. I wanna stretch a couple of my legs.”

Why don’t I just get up so you can have the entire couch to yourself?

“No, it’s okay –”

I was being sarcastic.

“– part of you has to be on the couch ‘cause I need a pillow.”

Oh, great.

“Hey. Does ‘sarcastic’ mean ‘pillowish’? ‘Cause yeah, you are. Hold still, please. G’night.”

  1. Aw man…that’s like my everyday + now does Iggy speak in any type of dialect because of my two monkeys my girl has a whiny-princess-drama-queen dialect + my eldest by has a Ghana-west-African-island dialect…hahaha and I can’t believe I’m talking about what my pets say + it’s so funny.

    1. Hmm. You know, I never thought about it. I’ve given a little bit of thought to his voice — I suppose I start the conversations with the idea that he’s got a cute little boy voice, like something E.G. Daily would come up with (she did voices on the old Rugrats cartoon). He’s a little kid, which is why he doesn’t know what words like “cannibal” and “sarcasm” mean.

      But then, depending where the conversations go, he might end up sort of intentionally annoying, and then he might be more of a mischievous adolescent. So I haven’t made up my mind about that.

      I think I’m leaving the dialect up to you — whichever dialect you hear in your head when you read it is the right one. 🙂

    2. Forgot to mention — don’t worry that you’re talking about what your pets say. I started an entire blog based on that! 😀
