Mental Images, Part 4

CASE 1: Imagine a small white dog, perhaps a Bichon Frisé. He is wearing a red velvet smoking jacket, with a cream silk ascot around his neck. He sits in a large, luxurious, brown leather armchair, puffing on his pipe and muttering "indubitably" as he reads the newspaper.

CASE 2: Imagine this same image, but replace the small white dog with a soft gray kitten.

Personally, I feel that Case 1 is a better mental image. What say you?


  1. I say it sounds like you're channeling Wishbone.

  2. I imagine the dog saying, "Look at the kitten. Now back to me. Now back to the kitten. Now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me."

  3. That is the best mental image ever.
