I'll Help, Ma!
A couple of nights ago, I woke up coughing. No big deal, thinks I, I'll just have a cough drop. I keep a bag in my headboard, so I reached back and grabbed it, unfortunately, upside down. Lots of the cough drops fell out, through the mattress, and onto the floor under the bed, in just that spot that is almost impossible to reach without being a contortionist.
I am a champion at putting things off, so I had been telling myself that "I'll get them the next time I come upstairs." Trouble is, next time never comes. But, I got some unexpected help.
You see, Becky Cat loves to fetch. She is always bringing me things. Thankfully, since she is an indoor cat, those things never include dead critters. But, for the past couple of days, I have been sitting at the computer and have looked down to see Becky sitting with her latest presentation, a cough drop. I pick it up, make a big deal about what a wonderful cat she is, and off she goes, to get another one, until she gets bored. I figure that, in another day or so, there won't be any more cough drops under the bed.
