    I used to have an oregano plant as an inside plant when first married and with first solely owned cat (as opposed to family cats growing up). That did not last long as Mephistopheles liked to rip it out of the pot, throw it on the floor, and roll on it. I decided that as a member of the mint family it was DOOMED and gave up. My husband also saved a bundle on buying me flowers since Mephistopheles firmly believed in demolishing bouquets by pulling out the various bits and dropping on the floor. Nicodemus is more apt to knock the vase on the floor (he is the klutziest cat I have ever met — but doesn’t care).

    And Indian food too!

    I knew what you meant. But it was still funny. :-) Like when my eldest was very young and was trying to explain to his dad how to get a computer game running. “You need a disk. You put the disk in there.” However, disk was pronounced with a “c” not an “s”. It took my husband a few beats to process what was actually being requested. Or the fact that due to my geographical upbringing, I apparently pronounce “peanut” as a piece of male anatomy. Leading to over 3 decades of a disappointed spouse when all I am looking for is a handful of….

    The image created by your typo. :-)

    This evening I was looking out at our (veggie) garden while washing the dishes, and got to watch a *$#!! squirrel sit on the deck rail eating a tomato. He only ate half (and seemed to be having some orgasmic response because he’d put it down, rub his face on the boards and loll and shimmy and then go back). If he had eaten the whole thing, we wouldn’t have minded (well, I wouldn’t have). It’s the waste that annoys. That and it was a gorgeous tomato (and we haven’t had that many this year). And yes, it should have been harvested, but I barely make it work after watering the people food (veggies) and the critter food (flowers whose seeds the birds love – the goldfinches are having a blast in the catnip currently). So I maintain – stupid squirrel. My husband was hoping the local hawk would swoop in and grab his dinner.

    Define large. :-) If it has the span of a daddy long legs (but it isn’t one) or it jumps around — it can go somewhere else. I was reading the other night and a spider dropped on me. Admittedly, it wasn’t big but it had crossed the (figurative) uncrossable line. After an initial shriek, I shook it airborne (and have no idea where it landed).

    The namings that happen when a lit major has majority vote. :-) His successor is Nicodemus Tiberius (the latter is a nod to a certain James Tiberius and a tendency to explore). His predecessor (while I still lived at home) was Desdemona (she was all black. The all white cat was, disappointingly, Percival (named by my mother but he was also acquired years before Desdemona, so it was a lost opportunity due to several factors)).

    Our Mephistopheles would remove one leg. We’d find one legged crickets limping in the (attached) garage or downstairs. They would be ceremoniously caught and then released outside to tell the tale of the ferocious being that took a limb but they had managed to escape with their life. We are still in the same house (and Mephistopheles has been gone for many many years) but the crickets haven’t visited. The stories told must have been quite terrifying.

    Spiders are shooed into corners (if tiny) and relocated if large. However, the spotty gunk some of them leave on the floor is annoying. Carcasses are few and far between. I do wish they’d eat ants and silverfish though. Or maybe they are and they get consumed differently. I am, however, not motivated enough to go researching.

    The smell of ripe bananas makes me gag (and then some). My husband likes to bring home those discounted bags of ripe bananas. They have to stay far far away from me (until I hold my breath and turn what hasn’t been eaten into banana bread). I like green bananas (not bright green, but greenish-yellow). If I buy bananas, I buy the greenest bunch I can find at the store. Eat about 3 (within 2 days), and then they sit around for another 3 or 4 before others in the house deem them edible. Those discount bananas — my younglings will eat rapidly (and make radioactive commentary) because they know I find the smell repulsive, but since the husband likes to bring home 3 or 4 bags…there is always banana bread (which I also find icky but I make with chocolate chips and the males (minus the cat) enjoy for many many breakfasts).
