The cat is meowing for the lights to go off

Image for post

It’s later than usual and the cat doesn’t like change

She’s meowing for the lights to go off as she’s spiraled in her favorite chair (the grey recliner I used to sit in)

She’s unaware of what I’m doing as I sit with a clipboard in my lap and sift through pages of what could someday be something

One meow means “Now”

Two means “Don’t make me come over there”

It’s comical, but she’s serious

One more page

Just one more page

Okay, okay, I get it. I’ll turn the lights off.
