This is Chester. He had been shocked by my transformation into someone he least likely expected to find in his domain.
After a chastisement, I told him he could expect more shocks in the days to follow.
Why he asks. All I want is a peaceful life lying in the sun by the window, and no pesky mice to chase.
Sorry, I say. I’m playing roles for my next book. Trying to get the feel for the character.
A drunk, a fool, and a man who does household chores. You’re failed in all three, just in case you want to know what I think.
The cat doesn’t have a sense of humour, or if he does, I’m not seeing it.
I think you’ve got it wrong. Not a drunk, a man with physical disabilities, not a fool but a clown who’s lost his will to perform, and yes, I am the one who does the cooking and cleaning,
And who’s in charge of feeding you? Anything else you care to add?
Looking good, keep up the good work, but how about fresh fish rather than that packet stuff.
