I’m writing a screenplay for a TAKEN/LOVE, ACTUALLY crossover/sequel.
Happy to wake up this morning in my own bed after 9 nights away from it
I was confronted by a mystery this morning: I was missing one sandal. I searched very thoroughly, with a flashlight so as not to waken Julie.
How is it possible to be missing one sandal? Both sandals, sure, you kick them off somewhere unusual and then you forget you did it. But one sandal?
I know what you’re thinking: Minnie’s the culprit. But the sandals live in the bedroom when they are not on my feet. Minnie doesn’t go into the bedroom unsupervised. She rarely is allowed in there at all.
Have our cats started dragging off individual items of footwear for cult rituals?
Mystery solved when Julie woke up: She had been smelling a Foul Odor from the bedroom, and traced the source of the odor to a Substance in the sandal tread. So she brought the offending footwear into the laundry room, tucked it in a plastic bag, and forgot to tell me.
In other news: I caught Minnie drinking from my water glass on the sofa side-table in the living room. She seemed to find it very satisfactory, better than the water in her bowls on the floor.
It’s good to be home.
Enjoying American coffee for the first time since Monday. Germany is a wonderful country but mother of god the coffee.
Sometimes I feel pretty smart but then I try to work the motion detector faucets in a public toilet.
