Only nine days until vacation time!!! Woo-hoo!!! Then we get a hotel!!! Lots of room to run around crazy and dig my claws into the carpet... But nine days is a very long time....too long. I'll try not to think about it. Two weeks sitting in one place...in one hotel...not driving...not in a kennel...no motion sickness....no throwing up (at least not as much)...
Matt seems to be having just as much trouble with this as I am. He keeps forgetting things...like his underwear...or eating meals...using his turn signal...which exit to get off on...what direction he's going...which state he's driving in... Everyday seems twice as long...as the minutes drag on...until he pulls our truck into the terminal yard and drops that puppy on its nose---no!...on its landing gear,..uh yes, that's it.
MATT: I really don't know if I want to write about my underwear.
BUSTER: Relax. It'll be fine. It looks real. The readers will dig it. Besides, it's all true. You forgot to wear your undies yesterday, and your boys were all over the place.
MATT: I doubt anyone really noticed.
BUSTER: Yeah, uh-huh. You said that waitress in Bloomington was especially nice to you. Now we know why. Really, Matt. That's why women love cats so much. We don't wear underpants either.
MATT: I see. I think maybe I should try not to think about it.
BUSTER: Women and underwear?
MATT: No! My vacation. The more I think about taking two weeks off, the slower it comes, and the crazier I get.
BUSTER: Yeah, I hear yah. Like yesterday when I thought your leg was my scratch-post. Does it feel better tonight?
MATT: I'll get over it. The rubbing alcohol helps.
BUSTER: Sorry about that.
MATT: Don't mention it.
BUSTER: So what are we gonna do?
MATT: About what?
BUSTER: What are we gonna do on our vacation?
MATT: Well, WE are gonna get a hotel, where YOU are gonna lay around all day and run around all night keeping me up, like you always do when we take time off. But I will do a little traveling here and there in my car with the camera.
BUSTER: Oh yeah? Got any examples of your camera work?
MATT: Yes, I do.
BUSTER: And what the heck is that?
MATT: That is the Washington Monument in a kind of sepia tone.
BUSTER: You nerd.
MATT: Yup! And proud of it.
