No, not that dumb movie with dumb Goldie Haun. I am house sitting this week for my boss and her husband.
Deena has two cats. One is named Alex and probably made two appearances
the whole time I was there. The other was Frank.
Frank is obese and diabetic, but what a friendly guy. He follows
you around and wants you to pet him all the time, sort of like a dog.
Frank needs two insulin shots per day. I have to sneak up on him while he eats,
then lift a fat roll off of his back and stick him! Sometimes he meows
in annoyance, other times he just takes it like a man.
Deena told me to make myself at home, and I took this admonition to heart.
I helped myself to all kinds of food and snacks, including the fanciest
glass of chocolate milk ever.
I watched as many movies as possible, and some Quantum Leap reruns, with
a little help from my new friends, Comcast and TiVo.
But man, what a mess I made. I spent the whole morning cleaning up my dishes, the coffee table,
my many Vanilla Coke cans, etc. Oh, and the litter box I had to clean out everyday. That is pretty
gross. How could two little cats produce so much in just one day? Incredible.
What a deal though. A free mini-vacation from human contact. I just basically read and watched movies all day. And ate. And got $50! Plus Deena left me two movie passes for Larryland. I definitely got the better end of this deal. Does anyone need a housesitter?
