The Box Line
Micah: Oh, look what I found. A box of food just waiting by the window for someone to nap on it.
Buddy: Jan is going to be very unhappy with you. Mr. Bill sent her that box of food and she hasn't had a chance to empty it yet.
Micah: That's okay. I'm not as particular about my boxes being empty as some cats are.
Buddy: Well, Jan might be particular about you sleeping there. You're denting the food boxes.
Micah: I think they're denting me too. I'd really rather not have box corners poking me, but if I stay here and look uncomfortable, perhaps Jan will empty the big box faster.
Buddy: You're a bit late. April Fool's Day was Saturday.
Micah: I'm not fooling.
Buddy: If you really want to sleep in the box, I'd go borrow Marcus's Great Swampi plopped down turban (Great Swami Marcus 6) and use it as a cushion on top of the food.
Micah: That's a good suggestion. I think Marcus left it on top of his crate. Would you mind bringing it to me?
Buddy: Why don't you go get it yourself?
Micah: If I move, I'll lose my place in the box line.
Buddy: *looks around* What box line?
Micah: The one the other cats will form as soon as I move.
Buddy: The box has been sitting there for a week. There hasn't been any box line.
Micah: There will be now that I've broken it in. Rusty will want to sleep with his head hanging off the top. Cyndi and Taylor will want to nest between the tuna cans. And Percy will want to spray it to cover my scent.
Buddy: *sigh* Okay, I'll go borrow Marcus's turban for you.
Micah: Thanks. And since you'll be passing the treat bag, could you bring that too?
On a serious note, we're thankful Monday wasn't as bad here as predicted. This is what we it looked like in the distance when the weather radio started squawking and the emergency sirens sounded around 12:30 pm. We had a t-storm, hail and a downpour where we are.
And Wednesday's more severe weather mostly by-passed us, for which we are extremely grateful! A tornado watch most of the day and another round of storms due in about an hour (writing this Wed. evening), but we're doing fine - so far.
We know many of you were included in the severe weather warning area and hope all of you are okay!
