Actually I got caught in a thunderstorm walking this morning and learned you CANNOT breathe through a wet cloth mask. It sucks up against your face and no air gets in. I rarely see anyone when I am walking and am able to social distance if I do, I just do it to set a good example for my kids.  But that was a surprise.

This is so true. I'm sure someone has already written a science fiction story in which cats are in fact evil aliens just waiting for the command to destroy us all.

This I believe.

My own dearly departed cat was fiercely loyal to me.  Once, my sister and I were bickering a little, and when she walked past kitty, he took a swipe at her leg for no apparent reason.  Kitty wasn't aggressive towards people at all, so this move caught both of us by surprise.  I think he was making his point that he was on Team Jeff and she'd better watch her step.  At other times, he faced off with big dogs in an effort to protect me when he could have easily hidden under a nearby car.  I have no doubt he'd have killed and died for me had the opportunity ever arisen.  And if he had perceived a threat to me, and unleashing a bioweapon against my enemies was within his power, he'd have done it without a second thought.

Man, he was a great cat.  Even all these years later, I still miss my little buddy sometimes.

We need a :catlove emoji. My first cat was a real lover-boy and after all these years I still miss him.

I've loved watching Cats & Dogs the movie.  :catrun  :dog1: Maybe we need to make a list, but I find that cats in fiction are almost always evil, whereas dogs are depicted the good guys.

That would actually be an improvement.  Right now, "school" consists of third-grade girls booty dancing on Zoom for their teachers and classmates.  (Seriously; that's one of the anecdotes my teacher neighbor gave me.)

Oddly, during my nightmarish experience at Walmart last week, I noticed that the people NOT wearing masks were in scooters or were their companions.

Being fat is not hazardous to anyone else's health unless the fat person crushes the annoying skinny person. You have been warned!
