So, Thursday evening found us Jeffless and without kitty litter. (Jeff was in New York. The litter was doing what litter tends to do, which is Clumping.)
After calling four different stores, we (meaning I) finally found a place that carries our (meaning My) favorite litter, and that litter is called Scoop Away!
Pet Store Lady at Register (P-SLAR): Ah ha! Did you just call here about Scoop Away!?
Me: That was me! I couldn’t remember where I bought it last time, and I didn’t want to settle for Tidy Cats.
P-SLAR: You should NEVER settle for Tidy Cats! Scoop Away! is the only litter I use. I HAVE SIX CATS!!!
Me: I have only two cats, but you’re totally preaching to the choir. We’ve tried just about every brand out there, and Scoop Away! is the only thing that really clumps and—
P-SLAR: AND DOESN’T TASTE LIKE PISS AND PERFUME!
P-SLAR: If you’ve tried everything out there, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
Okay, people. I know she probably meant to say “doesn’t SMELL like piss and perfume,” but the fact remains that I’m 40 years old (see how I’m throwing that around now?!) and I really have no idea what contaminated litter tastes like. And I realize that I will probably die NOT knowing what it tastes like (my best guess really would have been Piss and Perfume), but that doesn’t change the notion that there are SO many things of which I have absolutely zero knowledge! I really need to start attacking with a bit more energy, because what if I die before I realize an undiscovered passion?! (Feta cheese and chocolate chips stirred together? Surprisingly good! Also, I’m a big fan of the Hooey Stick! Knowledge is Power!)
Goal For the Day: Say No when Yes feels like too much of a compromise, and say Yes when it’s more adventuresome than No!
Even Better Goal for the Day: Pulled Smoked Pork Sliders!
