This is Coco, our cat. This was also the back of our Christmas card. The thing I love about this picture is the look on her face. It says, “I’m so bored with you, if you must take may picture just get it over with because I have some very important stretching to do on that patch of sun over there.” It is the look that I have been trying to master for a long time. The look that says, “You actually want me to waste my time doing what?” and then I would just sigh, look even more bored and walk away or start licking my hand. I wish I were more dispassionate like my cat because I am the one who gets cornered by the crazy person in the room that everyone else successfully avoided and I end up knowing way too much information about things I really want to know nothing about. I know I’m an eye contact person, so if I could just match the look in this picture then maybe I wouldn’t feel the need to shower off the lingering karma of these people. A look can say so much more than words sometimes….
