Red Letter Day

First, let me say Buttah's habit of lying on his back with his feet in the air is a tad disconcerting, especially when I find him in said position during the middle of the night, early morning trips to the bathroom.

Second, mom's habit of bringing me food items to try is a tad disconcerting. I can't say how many times I've said, "I'm avoiding boxed and bagged, sticking to fresh as often as possible. Yet, on Saturday, two more . . .

Third, the new assistant cried today, not once but twice, perhaps even three times. When I left today at 5:05 she was in a closed door meeting with the owner and general manager. Long story short, this was the third of three "meetings" with the owner, the first was one-on-one. Office grapevine reports she cried sometime after. I was the third wheel in the second meeting and no rumor, she cried afterwards. I suppose I'll discover in the morning the aftermath of meeting number three. I know she went into the third meeting wondering what she did to incur his wrath. Perhaps he explained it to her in more detail.

Fourth, it was warm today. But, I was hot. All day. Uncharacteristically so. Today I experienced a few of these moments. My first. Talk about disconcerting.


  1. Our Sassy kitty used to regularly lie on her back with paws up in the air. I think they do that when they're hot.

    I don't think I'd mind hot flashes, as long as they're only in the winter when I'm always freezing. :)

  2. OMG! I'd love to see Boo Boo with her feet up in the air. Buttah is SUCH an adorable kitty!

    So you're at work now.... what the hell happened???
    We're sitting on pins & needles...
    Can you tweet or fb it?

  3. Yeah, spill it.

  4. I started having hot flashes at 46. I'm 51 now and finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

  5. A friend of mine calls her hot flashes "personal summers".

    Good luck with the ass.
