My siblings and I used to fight over food, but we grew up. Then my child would wake from a dead sleep if I opened a candy bar and she also grew up. Today I’m eating crackers and there is the damn dog staring at me.
Nan swears blind she heard a miaowing from next door’s garden. She miaowed back. The cat miaowed. She miaowed back. This continued for minutes. She walks down the garden to the end. Looks over the fence. Still miaowing. Sees her neighbour miaowing back at her.
