Today is Tuesday and that means Chatter
When I was wondering what to chat about I got to thinking about being content.
The reason this is on my mind is because I was not content last night
and I woke up this morning in the same ugly mood.
This is not my usual state.
I was in this mood because I had an appointment this morning
that I did not want to go to.
Because of my snotty state I cancelled the appointment and stayed home.
Now I have to reschedule the appointment.
This has not improved my mood.
I was unhappy with what was and now unhappy with what will be.
Socrates said it best
“He who is not contented with what he has,
would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
Sometimes I just get so mad at myself!

I would for one day like to be
Living a life of one other than me.
Just one day to live the life of my cat.
How chimerical is that?!
Mama said I could chat with you today.
Usually not much happens around here but the other day
I knew something was up when I got put in the cage.
Jack wanted to help get me out but like me
he has paws and no hands so couldn’t open the door.
He is a pest but I gotta say he was a trooper and tried his
best to help me.
My doctor is a very nice guy and loves cats
but he is still the man with the thermometer and needle.
This time, there was a shot but no thermometer.
Do you know where the thermometer goes?
It’s not a place things are supposed to go into only out of.
Oh, and the scale. I have been on a diet. Really I have.
I have been hungry, so very hungry since the last time I saw him.
And I gained 2 pounds!
I was a little upset and embarrassed.
The hug made me feel much better.
He said not to worry about it but to try not to gain anymore.
Then it was back in the cage for the ride home.
Believe me, when I say there is no place like home!
That’s it for my Tuesday Chatter.

noun, informal; one’s own way, choice, or preference

If I had my druthers…
Here in this place where we live
To all the mean ugly others
A hard kick to their butts I would give
Then maybe they wouldn’t be such bothers.
