Flip Friday

I was actually going to post a cat movie this week.

Earlier in the week I said as much to Zoe.  "Zoe," I said, "do you think the cats are getting enough screen time?  Because I'm not sure...."

This was just a start to a conversation.  It's not like you can bring these things up abruptly.  You need to lead up to things.  Ease into conversation. 

For a bit, I pretended to do something else.  Then, a few minutes later I added, "You know, because I was thinking about taking a couple of cat movies to post for Friday."

She perked up at this.  Her left eye searched me for clarification.

"Oh, Zoe," I said, "really."  She stared as I went on.  "Cats like to be Stars, too.  You know?"

And at this point Zoe did something unexpectedly expected.  She did the Cutest Thing Imaginable, which made it Impossible for me NOT to film Her.



They really are incorrigible.

Better luck next week, cats.  For this week, it's yet another Rabbit Movie.

Ohhh, she hit you with The Full Length Effect! You never stood a chance!

I am imaginarily petting Zoe right now.

It was the Arabic background music that tipped me off -- this must be Miss Zoe's screen test for a role in the new Sex and the City movie where the girls go to Dubai! All they do is lounge around and look beautiful too. Is Miss Zoe the new Samantha?

(I think Zoe's more the Miranda type than the Samantha type.)

Last night was odd. Ashlyn was restless and I was testy. This morning, we saw your link from Facebook and immediately knew what the problem was -- we didn't watch Flip Friday together!

(Miss Zoe, we apologize. We'll never let that happen again.)
