We were watching hockey on TV tonight. The Penguins were playing the Flyers. It is probably the only time we will all cheer for the Penguins. Deb is a Penguins fan, but Dearth and myself will cheer for them because they are playing the Flyers.
One funny moment during the game was when the announcer described a great play made by a Pittsburg defenseman. I should note that Dearth and I constantly rib Deb about the Penguins players diving or taking dives (to draw penalties). The announcer says "He makes a terrific diving poke check!". Deb's eyes get big and she gets a bit indignant. "What?" We had to explain that a poke check is when you knock the puck away from the opposing team using the stick. Of course I couldn't let it go. "Diving poke checks can only be made by Penguins."
I made sure she wasn't holding anything that could do me any harm. Dearth almost got kicked when he laughed though. It was a win win comment.
Jo was sacked out during the game. Looking very comfy on one of the living room chairs (made for a human enjoyed by the feline). He manages to twist himself up on his back with his legs all going different directions. Dearth can't help but rub his belly a few times when he walks by him. "He looks too comfy not to mess with." He told me this as Jo caught him. A few claw marks and a couple noms to the knuckles showed him who was boss. To add insult to injury, everytime Dearth played with Jo's tummy the silly cat would reposition himself in a way that looked more comfy than the first.
