Meow, She Wrote

Marcy Very Much at the LA Times Festival of Books …


Cynthia is supposed to be Spring Cleaning. Instead, she is Spring Stalling by wearing a soon to be (hopefully but probably not) decluttered cowboy hat and practicing her old Spice Girls dance routine throughout the apartment.

Cynthia:  “So I’ll tell you what I want what I really really” … ACKKKKKKK!

The entire living room is covered in inky cat pawprints. The couch, the walls, the table. Even the ceiling somehow.

Marcy:  What? I’m practicing my pawtograph for the LA Times Festival of Books.

Cynthia (whimpering):  All over … the house?

Marcy:  What? You haven’t spring cleaned yet.

Cynthia: I was …  rehearsing.

penelope kitten (squeaking):  me too.

    I refuse to be square, therefore I will attend. I might even clone myself so I can see everything that’s going on. Can’t wait!
