baby talk.

Standard

i hear it over and over again

even coming out of my own mouth

and wonder how and why

we ever began the tradition

of talking to our pets in baby talk.

they must consider us to be quite simple people

ever working on our vocabulary and articulation

always hoping that some day

we might master our own language.

 

“i’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes,

a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt,

and i am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.”

not me, she has better nails, though we do have a similar look and stance when excitedly interrupting. 

“i don’t mean to interrupt people but i just randomly remember things and get really excited.”

-author unknown, but exactly what i would say

 

does anyone else have this issue?

i promise not to interrupt your written answer. 

i’m working on it.

coffee talk.

Standard

nothing like a bit of coffee talk between friends

to restore your balance and make for a great day.

chatting.

Standard

friends meet under the bridge

and relax into an after-dinner chat. 

“I’d be smiling and chatting away,

and my mind would be floating around somewhere else

like a balloon with a broken string.”
