Furry Balls of Death

  • Jan. 25th, 2006 at 11:54 PM
The Muse took a bite of her green apple, chewed a moment, and then grunted in disgust. She opened her mouth and pushed her fingers inside, withdrawing a small clump of hair.

"Mental floss, Muse?" I asked.

"Fucking cat hair," she said. "Ever since you got cats, it's everywhere."

"They weren't rolling around in the fruit bin. I don't know how you could have gotten hair on your apple."

She eyeballed the cats, curled sleeping together on the chair in the opposite corner of the room. "Furry little assassins, that's what they are. They're out to get me."

"If they are," I said, "I'm sure you did something to deserve it."

"I'm a delicate flower. I don't deserve any maltreatment."

I snorted. "You're a carnivorous plant, if anything. Lure your prey with scents of honey, and then suck them in so they can't get away."

She smiled. "Honey, when I suck them in, they don't want to get away."

"Tell me again why you're single?" I asked.

She shook her head. "I have no idea. Gypsy curse, maybe."

You have a curse on you, baby? We'll have to see if we can't get that all fixed up, ya know?

Well, we'll sacrifice a goat and a virgin or two, and see if that helps clear things up.

'Course, I don't know any virgins. This could be problematic.

i could probably scrounge up a few. but only for sacrifice. i'm not really into the innocence thing anymore.

tell the muse i'll be sleeping naked tonight. she thinks the cats are out to get her. . .

Hey, the Muse not only sleep naked, but in some extremely yoga-derived positions that I wouldn't suggest attempting without either massive quantities of alcohol or a few dislocated joints. Preferably, both.

And don't be stingy on the "Shannon sleeping naked" icons 'round these parts. We'd all enjoy a good show.

yep. definitely a gypsy curse. that's going to be my new catch-all excuse for things. late for work? "that darned ol' gypsy curse of mine made me late." feeling lazy? "sorry i can't help you move, my gypsy curse is flaring up on me."

yeah... i just should not try to be funny. it seems to work so much better then. :)

oh and also, green apple... mmmm.... :)

It just seems that there's an abundance of hair in your house, but didn't bother me none.

I'm glad it didn't creep you out too much. I did run out of tape, though, so I don't know how I'm going to get the rest of it to stick to the walls. Maybe I'll use mayonaisse. That might do the trick...

Yeah, that oughta do it. I admire your persistence.

I've got a lot of stick-to-it-ness. So do my walls, actually.

Maybe we can all get a group discount on some charms or wards or something... clear up all of our lives, wholesale.

Think On It
