A few days ago..
Him: Its nearly August
Me: Yes it is
Him: That means a new dog on the calendar
Him (hesitantly): I don't really like August's dog much
Me (treading carefully): What do you want to do about it? We could just leave it on July?
Him (relieved): Yes, if we could
Me: What's wrong with August's dog?
Him: Looks arrogant. Full of itself
So, it will remain July in our house until September. Unless, of course, September's dog is in any way egotistical.
