More actual dialogue

While I was sweeping the floor today, the cats were being unhelpful and underfoot. Here follows an actual conversation I had with Laura:

Jeff (to Koko): Move it! You're breaking the Second Rule: don't lay down in the dirt piles while I'm sweeping!
Jeff (to Meeper): And you -- you're breaking the Third Rule: don't try to eat anything I'm sweeping up!
Laura: I'm just curious, what's the First Rule?
Jeff: You do not talk about Fight Club.
Laura: Ohhh... Is that an important rule?
Jeff: Well, it's worked so far. Have the cats ever talked to you about Fight Club?
Laura: I suspect you've spent too much time with the cats, dear.

Multiply this by an entire day, and this is life in the Glover/Mountjoy household.
