Thanksgiving {kind of}

BC: Bear Cat
MK: Momma Kat

Daily conversation - Thanksgiving {kind of}:
BC: Do de do ... 
{Pause}
BC: I'm not putting up with your disrespect, you stupid pen! HI-YAH!
BC: Wha?????
{Pause}
BC: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! It's got me! IT'S GOT ME! I'm going to die! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
MK: {walking into the room} What's going on?
BC: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
MK: Bear!
BC: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
MK: Why do you have a post-it stuck to your back?
BC: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
MK: BEAR!
BC: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH {jumping up on the table and launching off the other side} OOFFF!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! {the post-it flies off mid-flight}.

{Pause}

BC: {breathing hard} {PUFF] {HUFF} {PUFF} {HUFF} {PUFF} ...

MK: Bear?
BC: {PHEW} That was CLOSE! I almost died, Momma!

MK: How did a post-it .... BEAR!
BC: I didn't do it!
MK: Bear, why are there post-its on our stuff?
BC: I was trying to get in the Thanksgiving spirit! I'm thankful for a lot of things! I wanted to count my blessings! But to do that, I had to mark everything.

MK: You don't ACTUALLY count your blessings, Bear. It's not a number. 
BC: WHAT?!? I've been hard at work while you've been sleeping!
MK: How did you get a post-it stuck to your back?
BC: I was working on writing on the post-its ... I got distracted by the pen and I rolled on my back to bunny kick it! Then ... then ... next thing I know ... A POST-IT was trying to EAT ME!
MK: You could fix that really easily, Bear.
BC: How?
MK: STOP PHUNKING WITH MY POST-ITS!
BC: Rats!
{Pause}
BC: Ummm ... err ... RATS!
{Pause}
BC: Give me that pen! {indiscriminate scratching}. VOILA!

MK: Now you're not thankful for post-its though you've liberally used them all over the place?
BC: I don't think you appreciate my recent trauma, Momma! All seven of my lives flashed before my eyes!
MK: Seven?
BC: Well, I've only USED seven, Momma. If I'd used all NINE, my lives would be over. OBVIOUSLY. And anyway, those seven have been busy!
MK: Bear, you sleep sixteen hours a day!
BC: Well, yeah. But the other eight are PRETTY INTENSE!
MK: Yeah. When you beat the stuffing out of the Kleenex box earlier, it could've gone either way there for awhile.
BC: What are you ... HEY! I OWNED that box! And I do other cat things ... ALL THE TIME!
MK: Like?
BC: Sheesh, Momma. You're not very thankful! I keep you safe from intruders ... I keep the natives in line ... I mean, teddy alone requires a lot of smackdown to behave!
MK: Smackdown isn't a verb, Bear.
BC: {mocking} Smackdown isn't a verb, Bear.
{Pause}
BC: When I do it, Momma, it's a verb ... a noun ... AND an ... an ...
MK: Adjective?
BC: EXACTLY! The least you could do is be THANKFUL that you don't have to constantly watch your back!
MK: Oh?

BC: Well, I didn't mean that LITERALLY. I'm a cat after all! You'd be a fool not to watch your back!
MK: Yeah. What a surprise! 
{Pause}
MK: {looking around} Bear, you kind of miss the spirit of Thanksgiving ...
BC: What?
MK: These have conditions on being thankful!
BC: Well, I mean why would I be thankful for something that's not MY WAY?





MK: Bear, you used the post it on the bathroom mirror to compliment yourself! How's that being thankful?
BC: Oh, so you're Miss "I do thankful right?" I'm thankful for stuff without conditions!
MK: Bear, these things are mine!
BC: Well, that's not really a Thanksgiving attitude, Momma! MINE MINE MINE MINE!! Sheesh.
MK: Or they're part of the house!
BC: Just because it's part of the house doesn't mean we can't be THANKFUL for it, Momma!
MK: Well, I understand, I just meant that they're not actually YOURS.
BC: Sheesh, Momma. It's not MINE or YOURS ... it's OURS. 
MK: Oh, yeah? Want to share that desk chair with me?
BC: I think NOT. We've had the conversation about sharing selfishness HOW many times?
MK: I thought you said the stuff was OURS.
BC: Well, only the stuff that's not mine is OURS.
MK: So my bed is yours?
BC: No! OBVIOUSLY not. MY bed is mine! My couch is mine. My blinds are mine. My kitchen table is mine.
BC: ... My pen is mine ...
MK: And you claimed I didn't have the Thanksgiving attitude ... you just said, "mine," FIVE TIMES.
BC: Well, YEAH. But only about what is MINE!
MK: I do see that you are thankful for other things as well. That's nice.
BC: So what are you thankful for, Momma?
MK: I'm thankful for you, Bear. I'm thankful for our readers who've become friends and friends who've become readers. I'm thankful for my capacity to love. I'm thankful for ...
BC: {snoring} ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
MK: Oh, my sweet, full of cattitude and furry fury, often misguided - but well meaning (most of the time) - Cuddle Bug. You are one of a kind ... and I'm so lucky I found you.
BC: IF SO ...
MK: AHHH! Holy crap! Give me a heart attack!
BC: ... WOULD IT REALLY KILL YOU TO GIVE ME TASTY WHOLE CHICKENS?!?!
MK: Thanksgiving, Bear. Thanksgiving.
BC: Your "Thanksgiving," my pooped on dreams!
MK: Maybe if you kept your poop in your litter box, that wouldn't happen!
BC: I like to think outside the box! {YAWN}. I'm most thankful for quiet! HINT! HINT!

  3. It's very important to be thankful, Bear! You know what I am also thankful for - post it notes! Because without them, my assistant's life would fall into chaos. They are also kind of fun to play with.

    We are thankful for your friendship, too.

    XOXO, Rosie
