I was in a flap yesterday, not of the cat variety, how ironic that would have been. It was back to work ultramarine blues. My full wrath of anger and bellyaching will come over the coming weeks, but not tonight: I am letting it swell into a mightier force, a tsunami of ill temper that I will unleash. Remember this mid-life crisis comes early and it is planned. No hasty decisions here. Things on my agenda will include staffroom protocol… my blood boils.
I see the cat had a go yesterday instead of me, did a fair job too, perhaps we should form a coalition and scrawl together. What do you think cat?… She’s not paying attention, she’s back on the hard stuff today. Biscuits that is, not heroine or smack but to her it’s probably just as good. Moments earlier the biscuits fell into her band-aid coloured bowl, it was a scene from a parachute drop in third world gratuity land – although with a cat and no helicopter, and due to personal preference as opposed to famine and desperation.
Snaffling and biting her way through the meaty atoms with aplomb she screams like a diva:
I-AMS a GO-CAT!
Yes you are.
***I had aspirations to blog everyday this year, but eight days in and already the cat is passing me a white flag purrrring for me to wave it aloft and have done with it. The beers are doing exactly the same but so far I have been controlled.
I shall depart for the evening. I am brewing a decaf tea for the other half, her new thing…
both cat and I will be on the look out for withdrawal symptoms.
What’s that cat? You’re passing her the white flag too? Give her half a chance, she reads this.
