Unexpected cat toy
Above is the face that glares into mine every morning.
Staring at me isn’t good enough, so he’s found a new way to rob me of sleep.
This is a digital player from RFB&D (Recordings For the Blind & Dyslexic). It’s next to my bed for easy access. Most of the time, I use it to read Discover Magazine. Each time a button is pushed, the player talks to you.
Here’s what my wake-up cat had in store for me today:
“End of Discover, December 2015”
“Back 5 seconds…back 20 seconds…back 1 minute…back 5 minutes…new location.”
Face to face with this face, he stared into my eyes and put his foot down.
This was the result:
He turned around, tail up and butt in my face, his back paw touching the half-moon button.
“Sleep 15 minutes.”
“Damn cat!” I mumbled.
“Speed down, normal.”
“Smart ass,” I said, throwing the covers over my head. “I should hire you out to a circus.”
“Old data yields new discoveries…”
If he starts talking about bosons and quarks, I’m outta here.
