Ben came down the hall wringing the sleep out of his eyes. I was standing alone in the living room beside the couch adjusting a blanket over the dog. Ben had heard me talking.
"Who you talkin' to?"
I stood up and looked at him and then looked down at the dog who stared back up at me from beneath the dark blue fleece.
"The dog," I said.
There's not problem with that. Of course not. We talk. All the time. All day long. Ever since we became office mates.
But, um, I do go to lunch by myself.
