. . . and I’m Taking the Cat

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Okay, I’ve survived a month of house guests (hi! very nice house guests!), home renovation, a new back yard construction project dreamed up by my wife and her dad, children who want to stay up all night “writing” (read, playing computer games), and a new, incomprehensible passion of my wife for somehow finagling a way to buy as “investment property” a house that’s laid out like something between Hogwarts and the Crooked House built by the Crooked Man. I have somehow managed to keep my sanity, though you could safely say that I haven’t gotten very much writing done during this time. But now…

Now, my daughter announces that she’s found a way to get free bagpipe lessons, and she wants to get on board. Bagpipe lessons!

That’s it. I can take no more. I’m acting on my long-standing threat.

I’m moving to a hotel—and I’m taking the cat.

    buahaha Dad…you’re doomed. I promise to practice outside in the field in the middle of the night…until I get the cops called on me. You won’t notice a thing.

    Jeff, my parents can understand. I played tuba as a youth and practiced in the house. Like the bagpipes, tubas are very difficult to play pianissimo.

    Well played bagpipes are nice but like violins, poorly played they are pure torture. Good luck!

    All those deleted comments are blogspam. This is getting really annoying.

    Following advice from Blogspot, I have changed the comments settings to require “word verification” — that is, a human action — before comments can be added. This means an extra step for anyone wanting to leave a comment, for which I apologize. But it seems to be the only way to stop the scum spam robots.

Post your comment before you lose your train of thought. (Mine already left the station.)
