It’s not secret that two things that really pull on my wife’s heart strings are puppy dogs and little, gray-haired old men. Then there’s puppy dogs who resemble little, gray haired old men (as in these). She can barely stand to look at them without running the risk of getting emotional.
However, it’s the fact that she can get teary eyed at the death of a digitally animated lizard on a science fiction television show that wins me over. I mean, who can’t love a woman who truly empathizes with a C.G. monster that is killed on television? That’s just one reason why I know we’ll be marred for a long time.
Update 12/1/2005 Apparently, Angela isn’t the only one who felt a special connection to Nimrod. Thanks, Dooce.
