Marcus: Why have you been sitting there so long staring so intently out the door?
Percy: I'm looking for Jan's calamity.
Marcus: When did she lose it? Come to think of it, what is it?
Percy: I'm not sure and I'm quite confused as to whether she lost it or she's expecting it.
Marcus: What brought it to your attention?
Percy: I was just reading some old comments and I came across one from the last time Jan flew across the room and crashed. It read, "Oh Jan, do we need to add an "e" to the end of your name and start calling you "Calamity Jane"? LOL! Furniture is evil. You can't fight furniture. Furniture always wins. Love & Biscuits, Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them"
Marcus: Did you search the internet to see what a calamity is?
Percy: Yes. Evidently it can be anything from an inevitable accident to a hangnail.
Marcus: You're waiting for a hangnail to walk through the door?
Percy: Don't be silly! I'm waiting for Jan to walk through the door so I can see if she is okay.
Marcus: Well, I'd suggest we move the basket and box so she doesn't trip coming in the door. I don't think we really need to worry about her. She's already had her calamity quota for the rest of this week.
Percy: She has? How?
Marcus: Remember when Jan was brushing Rusty Sunday morning and Rusty turned to give her a love nip like he always does and her forearm collided with his fangs?
Percy: That was an accident, and fortunately, Rusty didn't lose his teeth in that accident.
Marcus: Two holes in her arm count as a cat bite. And the same day she sliced her finger open with the lid on a can of tomato sauce.
Percy: Oh, that's right. She's thankful both injuries are healing so quickly since she still hasn't been able to find the new box of bandages.
Marcus: Now that you know Jan is okay, come with me. I can use some help filching a dog biscuit from the open package. That's it. Just push the box off the cat tree and -
Percy: Uh-oh, we forgot to move the basket and the box out of the doorway before Jan came in.
From all of us: Don't worry, the story is true but the ending is sprinkled with fairy dust.
