Very nice quilt. Um-m. what about a different phrase to express your delight....
I think losing bladder control is a perfectly acceptable metaphor for being really excited. You would know this if you owned a dog. I have one you can have if you're interested.
A dog, that is, not a problem with incontinence.
Jane is not a dog. Did Angry Carp mean to imply that?
In fact, no, Angry Carp did not mean to imply anything of the sort. From all appearances Jane is a lovely young human of the female variety: no wagging tail, opposable thumbs, nose not cold; all telling characteristics when distinguishing between dogs and humans. No, Angry Carp was making a funny by comparing a delightful idiom to the idiotic tendency of the canine to piddle on the carpet when over excited. And yes, Angry Carp was taking a very gentle jab at Holly C M's priggish insistence on a "different phrase." Hey, free country. Oh, and Angry Carp was semi-serious about the offer of a dog, since the one in his possession is annoying.
