Sitting on my mom's couch this morning at 6AM, getting ready to hit the road. Her dog jumps on my lap, excitedly.
Me: Mom, why is your dog attempting to put his tongue in my mouth?
Mom: Because he loves you and wants to express himself in a physical way.
Me: (Pause) Why do I suddenly have 'Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon' stuck in my head?
Mom: You two make a lovely couple.
And then I drove back home.
