11am. Wednesday May 25th, 2016.

Marcy and Cynthia are bickering over who gets to sit in the big comfy chair.

Marcy: ¬†No. I’m not moving.

Cynthia: But I’m the person. I should get to sit in my chair. It’s a¬†person chair.

Marcy:  No.

Just then Penelope Kitten enters with a giant pink and polka dotted towel.

She grabs her keys, a flashlight, and her stuffed mouse.

She heads out the front door.

Cynthia: ¬†Hey! P! Where do you think you’re going?

penelope kitten (squeaking):  the restaurant.

Cynthia:  Which restaurant?

penelope kitten:  at the end of the universe.

Cynthia (gasping): ¬†Oh no. ¬†I forgot. ¬†Today is May 25th – the day we celebrate Douglas Adams and his awesome sci-fi trilogy (in five parts). Today is… Towel Day!

Marcy:  Towel Day?

Cynthia:  Yes! Remember last time? When we took our towels hitchhiking and had tea with The Ruler Of The Universe and his cat, The Lord? And helped Marvin, the Paranoid Android valet park some spaceships?

Marcy:¬† Yeah! And we ran into those stupid Vogons. Forget it. I’m staying here. On my comfy chair.

Cynthia (panicking):  WHERE ARE OUR TOWELS?!

penelope kitten: ¬†don’t panic!


Cynthia desperately tears apart the linen closet looking for a towel. She discovers a post-it note.


Cynthia (almost fainting): Who let Zaphod Beeblebrox take our towels?

Cut to the comfy chair which is now missing a Marcy.

Cynthia: ¬†Nooooo…

Just then the doorbell rings It’s the UPS person delivering … cat towels!


“Cat Hair. Both A Condiment And A Fashion Accessory”

Marcy: ¬†Finally! I’ve been waiting for these all morning! Ok. We’re all good. Let’s go!

Marcy, Cynthia, and Penelope Kitten race outside Рthumb and paws held high Рclutching their towels -and hitchhiking to The Restaurant at the End of the Universe!

Marcy: ¬†So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish…tacos.

penelope kitten (squeaking):  we ended up at the wrong restaurant.

Cynthia:  Be back in a few days!

    This is cute! I like the pics and the towels and I actually got some of it…At least I think I did.

      Thank you! You’d like the books! Also, the movie is pretty good! Martin Freeman from the British version of The Office plays the lead.

    I understood nothing but love “cat hair, both a condiment and a fashion accessory.” So true!

    Greetings from MY comfy chair!
    I’m a huge loser.
    Can you believe I never read that book???
    I don’t understand a damn thing in this post, and yet… I love it. ūüôā I think something subconscious in me is relating… or it’s just that the towels are super cute and should be celebrated.
    Btw: that mouse toy is, erm… remarkably lifelike.
    *waves* Hi, Marcy! Nice to see you again the other day!

    Oh Gawd I read those books thousands of years ago and the only thing I remember about everything you mentioned, was Zaphod’s name. So it all made no sense but still fun to read!

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch May 25, 2016 at 8:43 pm

      LOL!! I keep meaning to read them again. I thought the movie was pretty good! Maybe I will just watch that again!

    I’ll have to show this to Kyle. He will appreciate it and get it. I tried, but I didn’t like the book or movie enough to pay attention. And now I’m missing the joke. Kyle will be thrilled to hold this over me. lol

    <3 Liz
