A cat left alone for too long gets mad and pees on all the furniture. I don't do that. I tend to drift, like a raft. I'm soloing around the world called our living room, with the kids, husband away, again.
I might end up in Azores.
We might have a great time.
I also might cry into my pillow: Please don't ask me to pour another glass of milk, please don't ask me. Also, stop quibbling about who is taller! Who cares who is taller? Who cares? Stop fighting! You are not the boss of me.
Except they are. My responsibilities. Beauties. Albatrosses and professors. The next generation.
I get out the crayons, and hope that no one bites.
