Get Real

This just up in my Inbox:  A memo from Bugs.  I’m very concerned.  He asked Kim to transmit it.  Not me.  So it’s serious.

I am down here at the end of the bed.  All I can see of you is the back of your laptop-cover.

I have forgotten what your face looks like.

I do not know what to do.

Did you receive this e-mail?  What have you got to say for yourself?

Dear Mr. Hooligan:

I apologize.  You’re right.  But –

I just have to post something today.  I need a post with today’s date on it.

This is my birthday.  It wouldn’t be right not to post something with today’s date on it.

Can you understand?

Yours regretfully,

/s/ Nadbugs Human

Make it snappy.  Tick tock.  Chop chop.

Dear Bugzie Snookums:

Right away.

Yours, Nad

So, folks – no more words.  A pictorial update only.  You see what I’m up against.  Gotta dash.  Nadbugs Human.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    Aww, poor Bugs! How could you resist those sweet lil pink kitty toes? Happy Birthday! 🙂

      Hi Catsparella! I’ve been enjoying your blog so much — great to see you here too! Pink kitty toes are TOO CUTE! Thank you for the birthday wishes. I’m so glad to be alive! Thank you for joining me.

    They get very impatient when we get absorbed in our ‘human’ activities, don’t they? Poor little bugs, having to resort to email.
    Lovely photos again – the first one especially, I love that little pile of paws.
    And Happy Birthday! (Is it really your b’day or just a ruse to get Bugs off your case?)

    • nadbugs says:

      Bewhiskered! Hilarious! A ruse! Oh well. Time is a trick, right? And you know things have come to a bad pass when the only way Bugs can get my attention is thru e-mail. “Pile of paws.” A wonderful phrase. Thank you for it. Smiling.

    I’m digging the teeth in the pillow!!!!! SSSOSOOOOO ferocious–glad it’s not your leg…again.

    Tell Bugs that he’ll have to wait today…IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!!! YOUR TURN!!!! Nice kitty…nice kitty.

    Happy Birthday you wonderful human and friend.

  5. HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you are having a fabulous day! It is my favorite niece’s birthday as well! xoxo

    Happy birthday! I hope that you’ve had a splendid day, and I hope that Bugs is taking it easy on you.

    And are those daffodil pictures current? If so, I’m incredibly jealous. Springtime is nowhere near in Pennsylvania. I take that back – I’ve seen my daffodils and tulips poking their heads out of the dirt, but it will be awhile before we see blooms. I am very impatient for spring this year. C’mon spring…

    • nadbugs says:

      My day was indeed wonderful, Melanie, thank you so much! I had so much fun — really, I was worn out! Yup, I took those daffodil pictures two days ago — little yellow smiley faces. I share your impatience, tho — today is freeezzzzing.

      And — Bugs take it easy on me? Not so much! Bugs is — Bugs. What can I say. Lovable no matter what. And that’s really goin’ some. . . .
