Oliver Wendell Holmes (American Physician, Poet, Writer, Humorist and Professor at Harvard, 1809-1894)
TIME: 3:12 PM
PLACE: The back seat of the Jeep
SUBJECT: StellaDella’s mask
Rain or shine, normally all three kids walk home together. After school today, MonkeyBoy had basketball practice and DramaQueen had patrols and cheerleading practice, so I went to pick up SD. I waited for her in the foyer and she ran up to me wearing the mask she made in art class. In case you can’t figure it out, it’s a black cat. She wore it out to the car where I took her picture. When we got home, I put it on and told SD to let Oreo out of the kennel and we would see what she would do when she saw me wearing it. Oreo came bounding out of the kennel as she normally does and then when she saw me standing there with the mask on, she skidded to a halt on the laminated floor. I said “It’s me Oreo,” and then she realized who it was. The mask had no effect on the cats though. More than likely, they just didn’t care!
