    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 1:31 PM
    We have a what's irritating you thread, and I think we need a thread for things that have made us smile, etc.

    Me - well, we have a puppy who is now 8 months. I let her out this morning and was hoping to keep the door open for her to come in. But it was too windy. I was stood by the door waiting for her, expecting to see her come down the steps.

    I then heard a tap at the door. She'd come down the steps, which I hadn't seen and tapped to be let in. She also taps to go out.

    Could be but I've never known a female dog do that before. They say owners grow to be like their dogs but maybe she's just grown to be like me, she does seem to have a lot of the same quirks.

    Saying that though, I don't !!!! me leg

    Yes, both my neutered females did that, past a certain age, and they also did a bit of humping as well.

    The vet confirmed it was due to the hormone changes after neutering.

    Myself and DH going into the supermarket today, and there was this little lad of about 3 years old, walking out of the shop, holding a new toy rather proudly, and when he saw us, he waved and went 'Hallo'.
    He was rather adorable, and made the walk round the shop a little bit more bearable.
    Such a pleasant kid, unlike some of them you get in there sometimes.

    Ive been giggling off and on since last night at such a silly thing is hats really tickle me.

    I'm reading a Harlan Coben book called 'Long Lost'. The hero is in a French police station being interviewed:

    Bad cop. - You lying sheet!

    Hero - You lying pillow case.

    One of the daftest funny things I've heard - totally unexpected in a thriller, too.
