  •  She... Someone in the background... (5+ / 0-)

    ... keeps saying "Good Girl!"

    •  Ah well... (5+ / 0-)

      You never know. Some people call all pooties "she" and all woozles "he."

      •  My SIL calls all animals 'he' (3+ / 0-)

        Even their mama cat, a calico, she called "he."  Drives me bonkers.  She also makes a lot into one word, doesn't pay attention to location names, so always misspells the street name and town where I live when addressing envelopes, another pet peeve of mine.

        I know.  I know.  I was a secretary and edited and/or composed everyone's letters or reports for decades, so at the time I always had to be correct in whatever I did.  I annoy even myself sometimes because I'm unable to turn my internal editor off.  It did, however, get me a near-4.0 GPA in college where I was an English Major in the Honors program, and did an Art History minor; I didn't enter college until age 41, but after my freshman year when I surprised myself with excellent grades, I figured out if the syllabus said Essay for the final grade, I'd go "Yes!" because I knew I'd ace the course then.  I even got 4.0 from profs who had bad reputations for never, ever giving anyone above a B, if that.  So..., sometimes my perfectionism works in my favor.  :-)
