Pretend it’s springtime with us! …
Cynthia skips and twirls around her apartment like a cheerful little kid.
Cynthia: Springtime is just so lovely!
Marcy: It’s dead of winter.
Cynthia: Oh no no no! (she throws out her arms wide) It’s sunny and beautiful and bright colors abound.
Marcy glances outside.
Marcy: It’s raining and freezing and completely gray.
Cynthia: What I love about spring is the hope (she twirls) and the possibility (she twirls) that permeate the air.
Marcy: Are you on drugs?
Cynthia: New beginnings! (twirl twirl twirl) Daring to dream big! (twirl twirl twirl twirl) And pretty yellow dresses! (twirl twirl twirl twirl twirl)
Marcy: No. Seriously. Are you on drugs?
Cynthia: I’m on… Cookies!
Cynthia collapses on the floor in a fit of giggles.
Marcy walks into the kitchen to find Penelope Kitten in a chefs hat and apron busily baking catnip cookies.
Marcy: So exactly how much catnip did you put in to those cookies?
penelope kitten (squeaking): 2 cups.
Marcy: What? That’s quadruple what the recipe called for! Humans can’t handle that!
penelope kitten: had to.
penelope kitten: our human needed help.
Marcy: Well, I know she was feeling stressed out and gloomy but …
Marcy glances into the living room where Cynthia was last seen.
Marcy: … now she’s trying to make snow angels in our cat box!
penelope kitten: ok. yeah yeah. so tomorrow let’s disable her facebook app instead.
Hi Lovely Readers! Happy New Year!
It seems that the whole world is mad lately and the turning of the year has only increased the woe and panic. I must admit to getting caught up in it.
But – springtime is my favorite time of year and since retailers are pretending it’s spring in the middle of January I have decided to pretend along with them!
So bring on the hope and the flowers and the bright colors and the smell of fresh grass! And, of course, the pretty yellow dresses!
