"You know, typing becomes a real challenge with you laying on my computer," she told her cat, not for the first time. Confabulation with her animals was a normal part of her everyday life, they were, after all, her family.
She reached to the table beside her chair where her rimstock resided just to the front of a chinchilla cage. She leafed through the book, checking pages bookmarked with bits of papers, brochures, and anything handy when needing to bookmark a page she would want to return to. When she came to a scrap of paper with LSAT prep written on it, she began to scan the page, looking for the specific information she required.
"OUCH!!" she let out as she quickly turned her head to the right, distancing her ear from the parrot on the back of her chair. "Why do you pudify yourself like this?" she queried the beautiful green bird. "But then, you never really are ashamed of your bad behavior are you." She chuckled as she reached up and petted the offender, knowing that the 'love bite' was just a gentle nip compared to what her bird could do. It was just a "pay attention to me" message, often sent... and received in loving understanding.
