Kitty Hit List
Taylor: What is that?
Rusty: That is a view through Jan's reading glasses, the ones she uses around the house.
Cyndi: I never realized her head is so lopsided.
Micah: I don't believe it is.
Percy: So why are her glasses lopsided?
Rusty: Because one of us kitties - and I won't incriminate myself, just in case it was me - knocked a bunch of stuff off of the computer desk. Again.
Micah: What does that have to do with her glasses?
Rusty: Well, the one of us who slept on the desk Tuesday night also knocked Jan's reading glasses onto the back of the typing chair seat and -
Cyndi: Oh, yes, I knew Jan sat on something Wednesday but I didn't know what it was.
Taylor: Can she still see to read with them?
Rusty: I'm not sure if she has to tilt her head or just close one eye at a time but I think she can still read with them.
Percy: She can probably see better with them than the time a month or two ago she thought she was going blind in one eye because she couldn't read as well with her left eye.
Micah: Right. After a couple days, she held the glasses at arm's length and discovered the left lens was missing. She found it under the desk when she cleaned.
Taylor: I rarely go into the living room, but I did hear her telling someone on the phone she now buys two pairs of reading glasses at a time from the dollar store.
Percy: She only uses her prescription glasses when she is away from the house because glasses are on the kitty hit list around here.
Taylor: Hit list?
Cyndi: Yes, it's something like a demolition list. I don't know why she blames us, though. We only push them off the desk. She's the one who sits or steps on them.
Rusty: To be fair, since one of us is distantly responsible for the condition of her glasses, perhaps we should do something to help her glasses fit better.
Percy: Okay, but won't plastic glasses break if you try to bend them back into shape?
Micah: You're right. We'll have to bend Jan's head to fit the frames. Any suggestions?
