I remember a friend telling us years ago that she heard her daughter telling her annoying younger brother to “Go outside and play with the traffic!”
My wife has a pair just like that but I think the ears and the tail have fallen off, she’s had them so long. I hug her a lot to make sure she doesn’t miss them too much.
I used to think it was a rat thing. A medical student I shared a house with years ago used to threaten us with Toxoplasmosis if we didn’t clean the place once in a while. I only recently discovered that cats are the master spreaders of the parasite, and that infected rats become attracted to cats and thence become easy prey!
Friend of yours?
Happy Independence Day, friend Gent!
Didn’t you do what I did and saved one from yesterday? Next week I’ll save one for you too!
Oh yum! Will there be enough for a picanic tomorrow? Always need something to drive away the Wednesday woes.
Does a little Melissa count? ’Cos she does!
