    I had to get up early this morning to take out the garbage. Not much other advantage. GoComics hadn’t even put up today’s comic yet.

    Pluses: The cats will stop clawing at my face after I feed them. I think that’s about it.

    Pig missed a minus that comes after that last one, You get blamed for things you’re not responsible for.

    another minus or two would be not being able to get nourishment or even a trip to the toilet… he’ll have to get out of bed sooner or later (hopefully not a LONG “later”)

    (nice to see y’all seeing my comments again)

    Pig doesn’t even have the added incentive of BACON for breakfast to get him out of bed, either. . . .

    My granddaughter peeled me out of bed this morning to play with her. I’d consider that a plus.

    Got up early for the first day of state parks opening. Checked the forecast to find the weather is worse than yesterday’s forecast.

    I NEED to have this strip on a coffee cup. Unfortunately, looks like all I can buy from here are prints.

    I had insomnia last night so I’m with you, Pig. Every morning, I trade wellness checks via email with an elderly cousin so I can’t really sleep in. This morning, I cut on my computer, replied to her email, then went back to bed for an hour. Didn’t go back to sleep, but it was a pleasantly lazy thing to do.

    Able to have Breakfast period


    Able to have Lunch period


    Able to have Supper period

    Able to use the bathroom

    Don’t have to sleep in a wet bed

    Box ‘o Happiness outdoors

    Don’t have to worry about nightmares ruining a good sleep

    No TV in bedroom so can watch TV if get out of bed

    Don’t have to put up with Rat dancing all over bed as I sleep



    Personally, the plusses outweigh the minuses when their food not being made by Rat. Especially as he would need someone to bring him his meals in bed and RAT WON’T DO IT!

    You’re absolutely right, Pig. —Just remember to turn off your phone, or take it off the hook (depending on your state of technology), because it is guaranteed otherwise to ring repeatedly while you try to sleep!

    It could be possible to see Pig as an embodiment of a part of us that should be embraced like all the other zen things. Oh right the crocs. Don’t nag at Pig.. give him a little hug .
