When I left to go for a walk, Simon was in the same general area over the cars. I grabbed a picture and was talking to him (in a reasonable, conversational tone and not at all in baby talk with kissy noises) when I realized I was being watched… by Daphne, who was sitting about five feet from my face. We regarded each other with mutual consciousness of the fact that I am a dork. Just then, The Other Human came up behind me with the dogs. Daphne puffed herself up and flew a few trees away with the utmost dignity.
