We’re getting ready for 2018! …
Cynthia: Hey Kitty Kitties! I’ve got my New Years resolutions all ready.
Marcy (sarcastically): Enlighten us. Please.
Cynthia: This year I’m going to do a “Dry January” which means no alcohol so as to improve liver function, sleep cycles, and energy. I am determined to cut out sugar and afternoon coffee too. I’m hoping these three steps will help me change my status from a “night owl” to an “early bird”. I’d really like that. Society is not nice to us “night owls” and I really want to increase my productivity this year.
Marcy: So you’re buying into the whole “early bird gets the worm” propaganda.
Cynthia: Well… yes. So – what’s your New Years resolution, Marcy?
Marcy: I’ve decided to be trendy this year. I’m going to be Ultra Violent.
Cynthia (confused): Ultra … violent?
Marcy: Yeah. It’s Pantone’s idea and it’s brilliant.
Marcy flashes her claws as Cynthia sits puzzled.
Cynthia: Oh. You mean Ultra Violet.
Marcy: Yup. Ultra Violent.
Marcy: Yes. Violent.
Cynthia: No. Marcy. It’s a color – Ultra … Violet. It’s Pantone’s color of the year for 2018.
Marcy: What’s the color?
Cynthia: It’s like a dark but vibrant purple.
Marcy: Exactly. The color of a bruise. Ultra … Violent.
Cynthia sighs and gives up.
Cynthia: What will you be doing for your New Years rez, P?
penelope kitten (squeaking): breakfast. lunch. and dinner.
penelope kitten: oh. and snacks.
Cynthia (incredulous): So you mean to tell me that Marcy is going to be more violent and Penelope is going to eat more food?
penelope kitten: yeah yeah.
Marcy: Yeah. It’s going to be a great two-oh-one-eight.
Cynthia reaches for the whiskey, chocolate chip cookies, and Netflix.
Happy Mew Year, Lovely Readers!
We wish you a truly wonderful 2018!
(whether you want to do more of the same or change things up!)
xo and meow and squeak,
cynthia + marcy + penelope kitten
