i don't know how phoebe knows it, but i swear she knows she is now my dog....maybe she can read the sign tammy posted on her zen dog door...phoebe rose hine. i am convinced tho that she somehow knows i belong especially to her now...its weird cuz she has basically lived here for almost 6 years. and in that time before she became a hine she has viewed me with contempt...i was simply the jailor who stood between her and the perfect world that she imagined she deserved. frodo used to be like that too...he never had much use for me either. maybe i grow on the ones who don't like me after many long years of prolonged exposure....maybe i need to to be savored by a more mature palate....like a dry wine.
anyway, its weird...i have 4 personal family animals...frodo and phoebe had no use for me for years...now they both really like me. daphne has always liked me but she still loves jenn and ko better which is fine...and dixie chick still can't stand the sight of me....after 10 years, dixie chick should have developed at least some liking of me..but she hasn't, i am still an ogre and she is still a feral cat.
in any case, i was just thinking that phoebe is softer with me...she is really not so much of a pain in the ass anymore...i actually want to thank you guys for making me adopt her...i don't even feel like shooting myself now when i say this..but...phoebe is actually lovely.
maybe if all of the pain in the asses were adopted they would mostly stop being pain in the asses too? could conan the barbarian become civilized? could jesse and jerry quit with the biting? would tina quit shattering my ear drums each day? would griffin stop acting like a snarling mini dracula? would meanie sweetie lose the meanie half?
maybe if they all had their own family, they would be lovely too?
i am thinking of adopting griffin...i just adore that little freakoid...what if i start the ball rolling with griffin by adding him to my personal family?.... will anyone join me in adopting a pain in the ass?
we can do an experiment..you guys come and pick a pain in the ass to adopt and we will see if they suddenly become lovely... like phoebe. we can call it "The Testing of the Pain in the Ass Theory!"
if anyone is up for a challenge..i am on a day off and can do up the paperwork today!
