soft and sheepy is GOOD

In January 2001, Number-6 moved to a new house and acquired, via eBay, a fine synthetic sheepskin rug. In discussing it, he and I had the following exchange:

<Number-6> I hope it'll be nice and soft
<SpupEh> yeah, it'll look nice at your new place
<Number-6> soft and sheepy
<SpupEh> Remember, soft and sheepy is GOOD

I was so taken by the out-of-context possibilities of the last line that I started using it as a signoff tagline. Later on, when Number-6 took delivery of the rug, he pronounced his satisfaction with it by saying it was "like having my own personal sheep"
