V is for Vignette

The Setting: a bathroom, around 7:00 a.m.

The Scene: a man and woman are in a bathroom, getting ready to go to work. A calico kitten scampers about the room.

Woman (attempting to sit on toilet as kitten tries to jump up there to get a drink): Stop it, Ruby! Stop it! Get out of the way. This is not your water bowl! 

Man: At least you only have to try to keep her away long enough to sit down. She thinks I'm a fountain.

Curtain closes.


  1. Hahahaha! Yes, at least your pee stream is not confused with a fountain.

    Thanks for the laugh.


  3. I'm not a cat-person (not anti-cat though either..I like them, but just more of a dog-person...), but I really think I would love Ruby. She sounds so much like our Jackson --who I loved deeply! Even without your Ruby-stories, this picture alone would make me love her! Ugh! Look at that face! :)

    p.s. ...and on the vignette..."tooo funny!" :-D

    1. Don't believe that innocent face for a minute. She's trouble looking for a place to happen.

    2. Oh no...I don't trust the face....but I still love it. Jackson was jet black and doesn't look anything like Ruby, but I can tell they would've been kindred, something...two peas in a, kitters from another litter?? ack....I got nothin'... you get my drift, though, right? ;)

  4. This is why skip knows to turn and leave when I say "skip, there are some things we do alone!"

  5. OK, are typically funny. But that is VERY funny. I'm glad I wasn't drinking something when I read that b/c it would have surely come out through my nose.

  6. LMAO yikes!

    Ruby and Crooks would probably like one another.

    One time, as I was... you know... peeing... he thought he would jump up on the toilet, thinking the lid was down I assume. I dunno. His mother was psycho. I saw it coming and tried to cut off the stream, but it was a little too late... and then I had to hold it as the panicked scampering shenanigans ensued! Then finished up and washed him down. Fun times... Fun times...
