Cynthia is fumbling with her makeshift mask – a men’s handkerchief wrapped around two elastic hairbands.
penelope kitten enters, sees a be-masked Cynthia, squeak screams, and runs away.
Cynthia: Why does this scare her every time? I’ve been wearing a face covering for three months now.
Marcy: She thinks you’re a masked monster. Or a disguised vampire. Or possibly a zombie.
Cynthia (sighing): You two have been staying up too late watching scary movies.
Marcy: Netflix is a serious addiction in these troubled times.
Cynthia fumbles a bit more with the elastics on her makeshift mask.
Cynthia: Ugh. This is a pain. I need a new mask for my face.
Marcy (smirking): That would be an improvement…
Marcy: … for your face. Heh heh heh heh.
Cynthia ignores Marcy’s put down and heads over to her computer.
Cynthia (throwing off the handkerchief): That’s it. I’m gonna get some cute masks with cats on them. There are a ton of handmade cat masks popping up on Etsy all the time now.

One week later.
Cynthia effortlessly puts on her brand new cat themed mask.
penelope kitten enters, sees a cat masked Cynthia, and screams.
penelope kitten (running away): there’s a giant were-cat in the house!
Cynthia looks at Marcy and sighs.
Marcy: Yeah. We just finished American Werewolf in London.
Cynthia: I’m cancelling Netflix. I’ll order Disney Plus instead.
Cynthia leaves to go grocery shopping.
Marcy: Heh heh heh. I think she forgot the plot to Bambi.
Thanks Cynthia! I was needing a new mask. I ordered the one from Caturday because it’s cute and comes in a small size. I may be delusional but I think I have a small head
It should be here by next week. Will let you know how it goes.
Ohhhhh … I love that one! Can’t wait to hear how it fits. That’s the only shop I’ve seen that sells them in different sizes. Did you see her whole shop? Lots to choose from!
Yeah. You’re still killin’ it with the posts! The lockdown may have affected your pants, but it’s done wonders for your writing!!
These are all so cute! I have a Hello Kitty one (made specifically for me) – That counts as “cat”, right? *waves zombie fingers at Penelope*
I have this vision of the red carpets during awards season next year, where everyone steps up to a spot, and each spot is 6 feet apart, and they ask, “Who are you wearing?” — but it refers to the designer mask. Not the designer dress.
Awww … thank you!
Yes – Hello Kitty definitely counts as a cat mask!
I can just see all the diamond encrusted and glittery face masks! ahahahaha
Ah masks. Who would have thought they’d be our prized possessions? (Unlike our pants). And, agree with Marcy about some of that intense Cartoon content!
I know, right?! Makes me wonder when on earth I will ever buy a pair of pants again!
Oh gosh – don’t even get me started on how I was traumatized by Disneyas a kid. I remember specifically not being allowed to watch Bambi a second time after I was so affected by it. Can we claim PTSD from Disney movies? Ha.
I still remember, as a kid, the scene in Pinocchio when the naughty little boy got turned into a donkey, and as he transformed, he was screaming and thrashing and crying for his mommy and getting thrown in a cage and I was like, WHAT? WHAT? Brrrrrr.
Oh my gosh! I had completely blocked that scene out of my life. That was horrifying. Truly and utterly horrifying. Oh no – remember Dumbo and his mom in chains? Okay Okay – I’m stopping. I am going to YouTube right now and look up Scooby Do, Laugh In, and Seseme Street episodes to cleanse my palate – so to speak. I’m now chanting Happy Happy Smiles and Giggles to myself right now. lalala la la la laaaaaaa 🙂
Oh man, Dumbo. Shudder. Whew! Time for Gilmore Girls or Parks and Rec!
Ohhhh – good choices!
