Smear the Glob

June 5, 2003

On Tuesday, it was Operation Butter Up Pork Chop. Loren and I went to the SPCA and was greeted by Jennifer, the webmaster and the person fostering our kitten. I was grateful that she was so accommodating of our multiple visits. I chuckled and declared, “Do we obsess more than anyone who comes in to adopt a cat?”

Jennifer did not chuckle. Instead, she said, “Well, I think it’s nice.”

I looked at Loren and exclaimed, “That means we do!” Jennifer looked away.

I entered the adoption office, and Pork Chop walked up to me immediately. I think he recognized my glasses, which he once tried to bat off my face. Jennifer did not leave the office long enough for me to smear the glob of Blue Bonnet that was melting in my jacket pocket all over Pork Chop’s fur. No matter. He has a belly. One more week to go, and I don’t think we have to manipulate things.

    Oh My God, the anticipation is killing me!! I look forward to each chapter of Pork Chop's story!

    By the way, have you noticed the Google Ads for "Baked Pork Chop Recipes" that follow each of your posts :-( I'll send a PETA brigade their way if they don't remove these ads.

    Keep the updates coming ... very enjoyable (especially from a fellow feline lover)

  2. Therese, thanks so much! So much more Pork Chop to come! :)

    Google is dumb. :(
