Q: How long can your kids remain covered under your health or dental plan?Maybe it's the wordiness, or the vagueness of "longer than before" and "in many cases," but I find this curiously hilarious.
A: Much longer than before in many cases.
In other cheering news, Priss, our most melodramatic cat, has fallen in love with her new toy (a piece of string) and has taken to carrying it up to us and then meowing piteously (her meows are always piteous) until we play with her. It's really cute, and fascinating that she seems to understand play: she knows that we're the agents of the string's action, and she knows that she can get us to drag it around in the amusing fashion that pleases her so. I know that a lot of pets do this, but it's some pretty higher-order thinking, isn't it?
