I’d forgotten the way that Michigan drivers will only allow one car length between cars, even at 80 MPH. Terrifies me. When I lived here, I yearned for a bumper sticker that would say, “If you want to get this close to my ass, you have to buy me a drink.”

Now I will consider my cat Sir Ian.

For he knows he's not allowed in the bedroom at night.

For he likes to play a game where he sneaks in there anyway, and hides, in the hopes that we won't realize he's there and will let him stay.

For it's impossible to get mad at him for that because we know he's only doing it because he loves us and wants to spend the night with us.

(Yes, I had to haul him out from under the bed last night. But I assured him I wasn't mad at him.)

How silly she looked,
With her fingers a-crook,
In an L, by her forehead she’d hold.

"For he is a mixture of gravity and waggery" is such a wonderful description.

TIL about "Now I will consider my cat Joffrey", a very moving and endearing poem by a 17th-century poet.
