The Old Man in the Cupboard

January 9, 2014

I just traded the following series of texts with Michael:


Me: (referring to picture above) If I’m very crafty I might figure out how to trap all three of them!

Michael: It looks like Leo is seriously considering joining Parker

Me: Exactly. It’s all going to according to my plan.

Michael: Where is the old man?

Me: In the cupboard. But he did come out and climb in the box first. By the time I thought to grab my phone he was back in the cupboard. I’ve fed him in there twice so far. No shrieking yet today.

Um … yeah. The old man Michael is asking about is our older cat, Darby.

Not either of our fathers.
Just in case you were worried.

And the door to the cupboard is WIDE open. It’s just that a heat duct runs underneath it so it’s very warm, and the old man is losing all his hair because of the steroids he takes for his asthma.

Yeah, I’m still talking about our cat.

Not a random old man I’ve got locked in the cupboard.
Just in case you were worried.

      The box came with my new “wellness mat” for the standing desk – so my feet don’t hurt so badly after hours at the computer!!

    Oh I love him. That tiny little face in a puffball body.

      Parker gets that all the time. He can actually be a little pissy baby – he fools everyone into thinking he’s a sweetheart. LOL!
