I usually try and talk to him less if I know people are around, but I've been getting looser and looser with that. This morning I was talking to him and someone said "hi" to me as they walked past and I nodded at them but indicated that I needed to finish my thought.
Roscoe told me not to worry about it. But, it's possible I'm just projecting on him what I want to hear. (By "possible" I mean that it is definitely me projecting. I'm writing "possible" so I don't hurt his feelings...)
This afternoon, a man walked past us while we were walking and gave a disapproving grunt as Roscoe peed on a tree. Roscoe looked over at me and I said, "Don't worry, he's just being mean. It's not anybody we care about." Roscoe went back to sniffing around.
I looked up and the man hadn't stopped walking, but his head was twisted around staring at me.
Not that it mattered, it wasn't anybody we cared about.
