Boo Mew

Baby Pancake had a strong set of lungs and a yowl that could be heard clear across the house when she demanded her own way. The only sounds I got the chance to memorialize were these sweet few mews.

our new kitten was near th exhaust pipe of th van, another appeared when i retrieved her, i took them both into th van, paul s took charge of them, said pat s would like th new one

we were waiting for pat to finish packing for a small excursion we had planned, paul s drove me up to where we were to pick her up, let me off to go to th restroom while we waited for her. th van was gone when i came back outside, i spent some of th time waiting for him exploring two sets of spiraling steps descending into one side of th parking lot, very curious design that all th college students knew how to quickly descend despite each step near th top being less than half a foot’s width

after some great length interspersed with conversations and occasional returns into th building, it became obvious that paul had simply abandoned me there, was not coming back. i had no alternative but to walk back, and he’d come up a distance and route meant to make that difficult

i was angry. mostly at th way he did it, simply leaving me there with no word, so that i’d been wasting time looking foolish expecting him to be back, when he was already back to his ordinary routine

outside his house lurked a dark morose woman who’d been treated similarly by him before. when she saw pat near th door she sang a sad soft song about how they’d never really known her. pat came out to greet th woman she’d previously known only as vague threat, understood immediately what had actually happened, cautioned careful secrecy because paul was home and might find them together

What do you usually have for breakfast?

meme from susan


Coffee. Who needs anything else?

Bacon egg and cheese croissant when I show up at the office. That with an apple fritter when we travel. Once in a blue moon, a cheese omelette. But even on any of those mornings, coffee would be enough on its own.
