Watch your words
So this morning, just up and half zombie, I am doing my best to make coffee. I take a step back from the counter and I guess I stepped on my Siamese cat's tail hard enough she absolutely freaked out and lunged at me. She missed and came back for seconds (very her, she is not deterred by my size) so I doused with some water and she takes off for the bedroom. My wife hears the conmmotion, comes out of the bathroom and asks what happened. I tell her and warn her that the cat is in a baaaad mood and leave her alone. Wife does not like the warning because that cat is her baby but lets her be and goes to work.
By midmorning the Siamese has forgiven me and asked me for more food as usual. I usually take a nap before going to work and the cat customarily comes to bed and sleeps right by my head and today was no exception. When I woke up, I called the wife at her office, I hear some people talking in the background and ask her who was there. She said it was her boss and the IT kid. The boss asks her who is in the phone and she says me. I went ahead and told her the cat forgave me and even took a nap with me... here is the rest of the conversation:
Wife: Oh goody! I am glad she slept with you! (Background conversation screeches to a stop...dead silence.)
Me: Er....honey.... Did you hear yourself just now?
Wife: Oh hell.... (turns to the boss) I am talking about my girl! (Silence stays the same)
Wife: The cat! The Cat! I am talking about my cat! (to me) And you stop laughing!
Me: (Gasping for air.) I love you honey. Talk to you later.
Wife: Oh you..... (Click)
I know I am doomed when I get home...but it was worth it.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.

Ah, it's those precious little moments in life we value so much....
