Me: I think the cat was supposed to be an enchanted human, wasn't he? That's why he could talk and stuff?
Paul: Was he supposed to be enchanted into a puppet cat or a real cat?
Me: Real, I think. Which is weird now that I think of it. You're in a house with three witches and none of them can change you back?
Of course, if somebody enchanted me into a black cat, I'm not sure I'd want to be changed back. Especially if I retained the power of speech.
Paul: You wouldn't be able to type.
Me: I could dictate. And just imagine the book signings!
