Love is strange

Me: If you could have any wild animal as a pet, and it’d be a good pet, which one would you choose?
Erik: Which would you choose?
Me: A snow leopard.
Erik: Hm… a capybara.
Me: Why?
Erik: They can swim!

Erik had to stay late at work (again) to help a co-worker manage his deluge of work.
Me: So what did you do today, besides saving the world?
Erik: I had a potpie.
