This is Chester. He’s come down from his bed in our bedroom to see what the commotion is about.
He stops at the top of the stairs down into the lounge room and sees the TV.
I might have guessed, the Maple Leafs are playing, he says.
Yep, I say, gleefully, and they’re winning.
Its not over until you know what…
Way to be a spoilsport. Stop complaining and take a seat. It’s a new day, a new coach, and a new invigoration in the team.
He sits and does that wrap around thing with his tail that indicates irritability.
Don’t get your hopes up, he says. And shouldn’t you be out in the office working on your NaNoWriMo project.
Under control I say. It’s practically writing itself.
Is that a shake of his head?
