Last night, as I drifted off to la-la land, I was awakened by the sounds of a LOUD CRASH BOOM!
Normally I would investigate but I was too tired to move. I told myself it was the neighbors. I went back to sleep.
Today, I was greeted by a wide-eyed cherub. He followed me with all of the innocence he could feign. This should have tipped me off to the fact that I would soon come face to face with a disaster of cyclonic proportions.
I headed off to The Paper Palace to start my day. One of Tsunami’s favorite nesting spots is on top of the white cabinets that harbor my crafty flower garden. He loves to lounge there and weave in and out of the blinds.
Tsunami has a unique way of travelling to this space. He does not walk over to the cabinets and jump on top of them, like an ordinary cat. Instead, he races from the living room through the halls to The Paper Palace, where he tears across my desk, full throttle, then launches off of the keyboard tray with all of his weight and flies to his chosen spot.
Usually, he does this when I am around. When I hear him coming, I race to move things out of his path, and I brace my knee against the keyboard tray to fortify it against his weight. Last night, however, I fell asleep during sentry duty.
As a result, the weight of Tsunami launching off of my keyboard tray finally broke it – causing it to crash to the floor, along with my keyboard, mouse, and a number of assorted items!
So today, instead of crafting, I am performing disaster recovery. Instead of card-making, I am fortifying the Paper Palace against CAT-ASTROPHES!
Is it any wonder we named this cat Tsunami!
Have a wonderful WOYWW and Wordless/Wordy Wednesday, dear friends!
