Theater of the Absurd

I was enjoying my mid morning nap in the sink when out of the blue Sadie the brilliant dashed into the bathroom and jumped up onto the counter. She started hissing loudly and at first I thought she was mad at me. Then she jumped off the counter and ran out of the room. I stood up and stretched, and went back to sleep. Within minutes, Sadie came back, repeating the same pattern. This time I got a look at her.

She wasn't hissing at me.

She was hissing at her reflection in the bathroom mirror. My assistant, the brilliant wonder that she is, was hissing at her own reflection in the mirror.

And you wonder why I don't post more???

I'm annoyed. I've got to go and take a nap, so that I have the energy later this evening to attempt to kill Sadie.

Penelope, I don't mean to presume but I really don't think you should kill Sadie. I mean you might get locked up for that. And if you ever had kittens, how would you explain to them that you're a jail-bir .. I mean, jail cat. Sadie can't help being dense. And killing really isn't very nice.

Penelope said...

First of all, wreched Karen had me spade in February of 2002 (happy Valentines to me), so children are out of the question.

I can merely attempt to kill Sadie, as she is quite fast. That and Karen seems to like Sadie, so if I did succeed in her murder, I'd have to go to a lot of trouble to make it look like an accident. I have too much to do to stage an accidental death or dismemberment, so probably it won't happen. That and I'd have to go through the hiring process to find another assistant. Since Karen is so cheap and won't actually pay my assistant, Sadie not only gets to live, but is gainfully employed.

Anyway, all this explaining has gotten me tired. I'm off.
