You Complete Me

The other day...
Matt- "Our dogs complete me"
Heather- "Oh yeah? the DOGS complete you? Sooooo I'm just..."
Matt- "Well the dogs complete me, but YOU make me whole"
Heather- "Completing is better than making whole. Complete is finishing something, you dont need anything else. Making whole is just... not as good"
Matt-"....Ok your the egg in my cake and they are the sprinkles on top"
Heather-"Thats better"
And just for the record....
com⋅plete [kuhm-pleet]
verb (used with object)
11. to make whole or entire: I need three more words to complete the puzzle.
12. to make perfect: His parting look of impotent rage completed my revenge.
13. to bring to an end; finish: Has he completed his new novel yet?
14. to consummate.

whole  [hohl]
–adjective 1. comprising the full quantity, amount, extent, number, etc., without diminution or exception; entire, full, or total: He ate the whole pie. They ran the whole distance.
2. containing all the elements properly belonging; complete: We have a whole set of antique china.
3. undivided; in one piece: to swallow a thing whole.
4. the whole assemblage of parts or elements belonging to a thing; the entire quantity, account, extent, or number: He accepted some of the parts but rejected the whole.
5. a thing complete in itself, or comprising all its parts or elements.
6. an assemblage of parts associated or viewed together as one thing; a unitary system.

So basically "Making whole" and "Complete" are exactly the same.
I know where I stand... right next to the dogs.
And its ok :)

Lol! Oh Heather...
At least you both love your dogs. I can't say I even remotely like football, and I'm pretty sure 'football' is exactly what T would use here ---> "________ completes me."
