WOW! Look at those scratch marks! But we’ll get to that in a minute.
Sadly, many of you probably noticed yesterday that I didn’t post this week’s Nickel’s Worth on Writing, which is when I share pearls of writing wisdom gained from 16 years as shucking a columnist.
Anyway, the reason was because our office server was down the entire day. That left me with some idle time, which I spent learning how to use a new sound recording app. For me, this is like calculating a trajectory to Mars. I’m not a technological thinker. In fact, even with those little symbols in our TV remote, I still get the batteries in backwards half the time and end up turning off our neighbor’s pacemaker.
So, what does any of this have to do with CATS, you ask? First, if you still have your hand raised, feel free to put it down now.
Secondly, just for fun, I thought I’d try something a little different by giving a short audio preview of this Monday’s upcoming column/blog post:
Just What We Need: Intoxicated Cats
Without giving away too much, the column is about a new Japanese wine made specifically for felines. In this snippet, I’m comparing the names of cat foods to dog foods as an example of how we’ve already accepted a certain level of servitude to our cats, who are already indifferent while sober…
Will I make this a regular thing? Perhaps. Or maybe more importantly, will my cat hear this and attack me in my sleep?
Both are distinct possibilities…
