Reason #65 Why writing takes so long

#65 It’s Rude to Watch Someone Bathe



People ask all the time, how long does it take to write a book. I always reply it depends on a great deal of things–many of them things one would not expect might interfere–unless one has cats, and then it all makes sense.

I mean, really, who else would bathe sitting on top of your desk? Who else but a cat would plop down in the middle of your work surface and then invite a buddy to come over and wash behind his ears?

And the final straw? They look so adorable in the midst of it  all?

The nerve! The audacity! The pomposity!

Who else but a cat can achieve that level of arrogance? I swear they are proud of themselves to boot!

I wish I could be annoyed, but gosh darn it, they are so cute. Then the purring starts…

Who can get anything done under those circumstances?

Yeah, there’s a reason we currently have more cats than people in the house.

And guess who just jumped on he desk…

    Is one of them named Mr. Darcy…arrogance/pride? LOL!

    1. Actually not, LOL. Both of them are as sweet as you can possibly imagine. They just both wanted to be close to me and for cats, grooming like that appears to be a way of asking permission to share the spot. LOL
