"oh, thankyou" I put the brewed and timed tea down quietly turning the cup handle
"would you please see about getting tickets to the Van Cliburn compettion being held in Fort Worth Texas, I think its in the spring..?"
The Wheat chex crunch just got turned up at " Would YOU Pleaseeeee" , so All I could admit to hearing was,

I forgot about some sunrise sex.. well , not completely.
crunch crunch crunch.
looked into my empty cup so see if there was any cat hair floating in it and thinking if , I should chance it...
"Why bother, her tea is still full , so,
" IIIIIIIII takes it", with a gollum sound and a hidden laughter inside, picturing me slapping a fish to smithereens, while I sing some ancient Tolkien song from the Two Towers movie.
Its a gloriuos day to be here, even if the temp. is dropping with the promise of rain.....
More , crunching sounds, while I catch a glance at well thumbed copy of JitterBug Perfume and wonder if All the secrets in there were true... are true, I mean.
