Well this is unprecedented. The Pedant just randomly texted me a link to a funny internet thing. With dogs in it.
In the past he’s generally been dead silent for days after I’ve brought up relationship issues I was having. Like, unable even to respond to small talk. EmotionsTalk just borks up his system, usually, and he needs to retreat and devote all his processing power to figuring out what I’m telling him.
The funny link reassures me that he still likes me even though he’s being silent. Awesome.
