I feel really silly in this hat.
You look really silly in that hat.
I think they both look pretty silly. Where's my treat?

Did you feed the dog?
No, I thought you fed the dog.
If somebody doesn't feed the dog soon, I'm going to bite a leg.

Your hand is freezing.
I fed the dog some ice chips.
I love ice chips! I'm not even sure where they got them, this being 1434 and all.
