Andy: Absolutely not. They smell and shit everywhere.
Me: You would never have to mow the backyard. And they are natural composters. They could eat all our garbage.
Andy: Are you seriously asking me to buy you goats?
Me: I think it would be a useful pet.
Andy: No. We do not, live on, near or around a farm. I told you any more animals and you will be trading your bungalow in for a shopping cart full of empty cans.
Me: You said no animals IN the house. The goats would live outside.
Andy: Are you going to build them an f*&^ing barn for the winter?
Me: Like a doghouse. For goats. And they are hardy animals, they don't mind the cold.
Andy: You are ridiculous.
