She’d said good food made music inside her head, and sometimes when she ate something good she’d swing her fingers like an orchestra conductor’s wand. We had two friends over, one of whom had brought a pet dog. I saw her in the kitchen preparing a snack tray, and the dog went in to investigate. She popped a snack in her mouth and swung her fingers to the music. Then she popped a snack in the dog’s mouth and swung her fingers in front of the dog’s nose so he could hear the music.
Postscript: We’ve been married 7 years now.
