[Tanya] Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions.
Well, I am about ready to settle in for my 8th nap today, but I can give you a few minutes.
[T] Your generosity is overwhelming.
You are welcome.
[T] I was being facetious.
I do not understand.
[T] Sarcasm, Emeril.
You are boring me. I am going to take my nap now.
[T] Okay, okay, I’m sorry your Royal Highness. I’ll be good.
You are forgiven, but I expect an extra generous afternoon snack.
[T] You don’t get an afternoon snack.
This is why it will be extra generous when you give me one.
[T] Okay. Let’s get to the questions so you can take your nap. Here at eat laugh purr, we enjoy simple pleasures every day. What brings you pleasure Emeril?
I am a cat. So automatically I do what only pleases me. I eat. I sleep in one of my four beds. I get petted and adored. How can I not be happy? Unlike you humans I do not waste my time on things that do not make me purr, nor do I worry what others think.
[T] True. We humans do seem to spend an extraordinary amount of time doing things that we don’t enjoy and worrying what others think about us. How can we become more like you?
No one can be as special as me. But you can become more cat-like. Chill out. Take a nap. Get a belly rub. And purr. You will feel much better. I am getting sleepy. Hurry up with your questions.
[T] Yes, I can see how you would be tired after a rough morning of doing nothing but sleep and eat. So I’ll make the next 3 question fast. Dry or wet cat food?
Dry food only! Wet cat food is GROSS!
[T] Sleep with mom or in your own bed?
Both. Sleep most of the night in one of my many sleeping places. But pester mom at least twice a night just in case she is the mood to get up and give me a extra snack.
[T] Who’s your favorite cat?
Me. Oh, besides me. Garfield. He knows how to live the good life.
[T] Thanks for your time Emeril. Go take your nap now.
You are welcome. I will be up later for my extra generous afternoon snack.
