We’re pet-sitting Heidi this week. I’m really not used to having a dog around the house.
When I’m talking to clients on the phone, I always use the speakerphone, because I usually need to be typing and/or clicking the mouse while talking to them.
For some reason, this often causes the cats to flock to my desk, get on my lap, and sometimes meow a lot. Occasionally a client will hear the meowing, and they’ll say aw, is that your cat, etc. No big deal.
But today when I get on the phone, Heidi comes in, plops down next to my desk where her food bowl is, and starts crunching away. I mean Captain friggin’ Crunching away. The loudest crunching that I’ve ever heard and, I’m sure, that my client has ever heard. She politely pretended not to notice.
