dragon: what klind of origami would you like?
blinder: a panda
dragon: (busy folding) um... i think it might be a kind of monkey-panda.
blinder: all right.
dragon: (folding some more, checking mistakes, and looking at diagram) Maybe not a monkey. Maybe more of a... um...
blinder: Whatcha making, dragons?
dragon: i give up.
dragons: look, i made this! (holds up little origami box shaped like a house)
blinder: it's a... thing!
kitten likes the age-old game of parachute sheet, which consists of us trying to make the bed while she runs around like crazy. We always joke about her hunting "bed mice." Well, one of my origami projects got caught up under the sheet as she was running around and we were trying to make the bed.
kitten: MOMMY! Bed mouse! SAVE ME!
*kitten promptly panics*
blinder: If she ever caught a real mouse she'd die of a heart attack
dragon: so would the mouse.
blinder: "Mouse, you were NEVER SO SAFE. If you had to be caught by a cat... "
dragon: we're using the term "cat" pretty loosely, here.
blinder: she'd probably snuggle it to death.
dragon: kitten, it's the weekend. Here., Have a kiss and now let me sleep.
kitten: MEOW ("get-out-of-bed-and-get-me-a-dish-of-MILK!")
dragon: If i do, you're getting your MEDICINE, too!
(kitten will gladly wait for milk if it means her meds wait, too.)
kitten: CHOMP! (bites my hand.)
kitten: i'm sorry i was asleep and i thought it was a steak
kitten: CHOMP! (bites my hand again)
dragon: HEY! OW!
kitten: i'm sorry i was awake and thought it was your hand
Whenever i cook rice, kitten gets excited because i might be making sushi, and it might involve tamago. I never met a cat who liked eggs so much. I think it's weird. It makes it very surreal to cook a stirfry with rice when the cat's there yelling at you to add eggs.
