Boo-Boo is Evil


Whew. I've been writing like crazy on the Hummingbird sequel. We're close to the first 350 pp being DONE. I cranked out nearly 60 pp today in new stuff and revision. It's so adult. It's so rich. I will confess now that I'm getting excited.

But I'm not here to talk about that right now. I am here to complain about my cat. Boo-Boo. You see, Boo-Boo is evil.

She looks like the black dragon in that 3-D movie. We always knew she had a wicked streak. But the other day, we left a steak out on a platter. hey, she's a small cat. No prob. BUT SHE STOLE THE STEAK. She stole the steak and ATE IT. It was bigger than Boo-Boo.

Now we have realized that Boo has organized a midnight crime syndicate in our house. I don't know where she thinks she's going, but she has targeted one wall of our hallway and is apparently trying to tunnel through it. Boo is making a break for it! Scratching her way into the drywall.

But get this: she has formed a gang with our dogs. They are working in collusion. There were some bits of ham left over in a container. I was going to use them for dog food in the morning. But Boo, master-mind, apparently got up on the counter, opened the container, got the ham and dropped it to the dogs!

Now, what I need to figure out is, what do the dogs owe Boo-Boo? Eh? What heinous debt is she going to collect? What hellish plot have they bought into for four measly slices of ham? us...before it's too late.

I don't know what your gang of four-leggeds is up to, but it sounds like maybe scenes in a new graphic novel.

Get her addicted to "cat-nip." Once they start, they can't quit. Then...she will be indebted to you and will have to steal from someone else to keep her habit up. She wouldn't dare mess with her "dealer," too risky.

Works every time! Can't tell me I didn't learn something from my time with the government!!! Oops...did I say that out loud?

Boo Boo has pictures of the dogs...doing things. Things they'd rather you don't know about. Don't ask me what, they've sworn me to secrecy.
