|Espresso, "What do you mean, 'Can I be nice if I get a cookie?' - what are you trying to say!?"|
|Gus, "Oh, yeah! My give-a-thump broke; it's out that way, in the dump, hoomin!"|
|Charlie, "First - 'because I can,' and second, 'just because,' hoomin, 'just because!'"|
|Gus, "Nope, no sir - I'm all out of poses and patience, hoomin."|
I sayz to my hoomin this morning, "Have no fear - the long weekend's here!" Did he listen? Of course not! Honestly, both hoomins are still in the woods with the illness. Every little chore became an act of defiance and resistance to the notion of feeling sick and scared. But, we plod on.
The good news is Charlie came over today! I almost binkied after not seeing her for a few days. We're finally off to noming and loafing nose to nose. I'll throw out my hoomin from my spot in a minute, and it will be "back to normal" for us. He can thrash against the windmill of cleaning up Gus's room. Maybe it'll make him feel better.
And yes - you're right - all the pixes today would have looked better as black-and-white, but that would be a bit much.
We'll keep you posted!
