Friends & Kitties!
Yes, I'm still alive!
And feeling much better. Thank you for all your thoughts, purrayers, and woofs and assorted healing barnyard noises. I ended up taking another two days off work, so today (Sunday) is my first day back. Thank goodness I work with such a great team of folks and I'm always ready to take on overtime when asked. It's good Karma, paying me back.
So, early one morning last week when I woke up with a raging sore throat. I got up, spat into the sink, rinsed, peed, and went back back to bed. Later that day I discovered that I hadn't rinsed so well, and I was grossed out (in a purely scientific way) at how green the mucus was! Ewww. I practically had to chisel it off the porcelain, which got me thinking about words, and adhesive properties. Do any of you remember the weird gold glue that came in a bottle with the slitted rubber top? It was called mucilage. Now I know why. Because not only is snot "slicker n'shit", it's sticky, too.
|my mucilage was green!|
On the subject of stuff that's sticky, did any of you ever eat paste? I never did. What, exactly, was the attraction...did it taste good, were you hungry, or was it simply the thrill of ingesting forbidden school supplies?
I've obviously had way too much time to think the past week...
Anyway, I'm guessing the guys pouring the concrete in the park last week would have been thrilled to have some of my super-duper industrial strength snot to mix into the cement. Yes, you read that right, there is progress on the park being built across the street! Nothing worth photographing--it's all underground and buried--but the water and electrical lines are done, and the main pad for the trail head building is poured. There's big holes augered into the ground all over for who knows what, and the earth movers are out there almost every day, refining the landscape. The supposed completion date was July, and I think it might come true; contractors don't mess around out here and get things done.
The answer to the "creative" quiz from yesterday...that's Maui's armpit hair! Also the outside of his fur suit. I cracked up at some of your answers, you guys never fail to make me laugh. Smartypantses, all y'alls! The fur on Maui's pits is five inches long, I kid you not. (Of course we measured!) Thankfully he rarely ever gets mats, he's not too patient about being groomed, although once in a while I can catch him all sleepy and he'll endure a combing.
Well, that's about all the news I have, it's been a quiet week for me, mainly sleeping and snuggling with kitties. I hope that I'll be up to slaving away for the cats again soon, commenting. I miss it!
Happy Sunday, and have a Good Week!
