Morning Walk: Day 2

Posted by melagee on March 1, 2011

Hit the snooze button once this morning.

I saw a fluffy black kitty sitting on a porch. I assume it was a lady kitty, because I usually think fluffy cats are ladies. I also usually assume that tuxedo cats are dudes. Regardless, Fluffy Black Kitty sat on her porch watching me, sentinel style, as I walked by, watching her back. I wondered what she would have done if I’d actually walked up to her. Probably run away. I thought about walking up to the door and ringing the bell, then running off, so that Fluffy Black Kitty would have a chance to run inside when her owners opened the door. Then I thought about the owners opening the door before I had a chance to run off, and me trying to explain why I had rung their doorbell.

Then I wondered if maybe there were a long stick lying in the front yard. If there were a long stick around, I could possibly use it to poke at the doorbell from a distance, thus giving myself more time to run off. But suppose it’s still not enough time? Or suppose the home-owners just happen to be right on the other side of the door? Then, not only have I been caught ringing the doorbell, but I have a long stick in my hands and I probably look like I’m ready to bolt.

On top of all of this potential embarrassment, Fluffy Black Kitty would probably have run away because of my approach (I am big and scary and I have a stick), so now if I try to explain exactly why I was ringing the doorbell, I look like I might possibly be crazy. And what if Fluffy Black Kitty doesn’t even live here?!

I decided I wasn’t in the mood to feel like an idiot this morning, and anyway, Fluffy Black Kitty had plenty of fluff to keep her warm.

I walked on.
