About The Old Woman and Expectations #4

the old woman with no cat came to believe she was a stranger to herself. not that she was strange, she’d never admit that, although if she’d had a cat they would’ve discussed this endlessly as everyone knows a cat always has one ear open when both eyes are closed, or so thought the woman with no cat.

  2. I had a cat once. It was delicious. I’ve subsequently discovered that grilling is better than rotisserie.
