LOTTERY READING GUIDE
10 am and 84 degrees.
I told Touloose about how cool the LOTTERY reading guide looks.
He looked at me with kitty skepticism and said, "Yeah well?"
UK NEWS: LOTTERY IN THE WINTER CATALOG
I showed him the catalog from my UK publisher. "Look Touloose!" I said excitedly. "I'm lead title and I made the cover!"
He covered his face with his paws and said, "Enough already! You made the cover of the Putnam catalog! Do you have to tell me every little detail?"
And then the phone rings.
"LOTTERY IS NOW IN ITS SECOND PRINTING!!!!" Happy voices proclaim.
"SECOND PRINTING?" I screamed. "Is that a good thing?" I ask.
"THIS IS A VERY GOOD THING!" The emails and voices ensure.
I hear cheering and the sound of clapping hands by happy Putnamites.
And I know it will be a merry evening in Putamland.
I wake both cats.
"LOTTERY IS IN ITS SECOND PRINTING!!!!!" I scream.
Touloose marches to the galley and does this:
"LOTTERY LOTTERY LOTTERY!!! ENOUGH ABOUT LOTTERY!! I'M SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT YOUR STUPID BOOK! CAN'T YOU TALK ABOUT IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE THE GLOBAL WARMING AFFECT ON CATNIP AND KITTY LITTER? AND WHAT ABOUT CAT FOOD? HAVE YOU TAKEN ONE MINUTE TO CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY THAT WE NEED TO BE FED????!!!!"
I ponder this later as I finish my letter to the editor on the status of the world catnip supply.
I have to go feed my cats now.
