I dreamed about a cat last night, which either means I should adopt a stray, or that someone is trying to kill me. Probably the former. Probably.
Adopting a stray anything has been on my mind for a couple of years. But I have 2 kids 3 and under and my hands (and patience) are FULL. Plus, Husband and I totally plan on using the notion of getting a pet to blackmail our kids. You want a dog? Well.... first you’ll have to demonstrate how responsible you are! When you’ve learned to do your own laundry AND make a cheesecake, then we’ll talk.
Still, there’s no harm in shopping around. So every now and then I’ll go online and mentally adopt 50 cats.
One day in law school, I hopped onto Petfinder.com to explore the feasibility of adopting a horse. I normally sat in the front row of the class, because I’m unable to focus on anything when I sit in back what with all those distracting backs-of-heads. Since the seats were auditorium-style, this meant that the people in the row behind me could see my laptop screen, and the people behind them could see their laptop screens, etc.
A friend of mine who religiously sat in the back of the classroom, like a NORMAL student, said that by the end of that class, nearly everyone was on Petfinder.
I’m a leader like that.
