When I do something Maizie doesn’t like, her way of getting back at me is to lie with her back to me. (Really, this isn’t a punishment — it’s nice not to have her staring at me for once. It gets creepy after a while.) My infraction today was cutting her nails, which sent her into her sulky, flop-on-her-bed, “why-are-you-so-MEAN” routine. I’m reminded of a ditty my mom used to repeat when I was sulky:
“Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I’m going out to eat WORMS!”
Well, Happy Memorial Day to you, too.
