  1. Never really appreciated the hole “that’s X in dog years” equivalency.
    I understand that it’s a way for some of us humans to empathise/relate more to our beloved pets, but I’ve always found it borish and facile.

    But then again, I am a grump so it could just be that.

    I do enjoying this conversation I tend to have:
    “Yeah but that’s like 71 in dogs years”
    what’s that in mouse years?
    “What? I don’t know. What’s that got to do with it?”

  2. I get this conversation every time I’m walking with my macaw…

    “How old is she?”

    “36”

    “What’s that in human years?”

    “well, she was hatched in 1985, so… 36?”
