The dialogue beyond language itself
Me: You’ve got junk in your ear again!
Cat: I most certainly do NOT!
Me: I gave you an ear nuggie and saw it! Serious, industrial strength gook!
Cat: Stupid human; Superior Cats (Tortoiseshells, to the peons) have darker ear wax.
Me: So it’s not bothering you.
Cat: How ridiculous, of course not.
Me: So you’re actually standing there, shoving your entire back foot in your ear, then holding position for 30 seconds at a time because you feel like it.
Cat: It’s a complex martial-arts stretch originating in the Nile River Delta and popular among us during the Egyptian Middle Kingdom; of course you wouldn’t understand.
