This weekend I was cleaning out my husband’s watch case, which I purchased for him because he has SIX MILLION WATCHES and apparently six million watches is THREE MILLION WATCHES too few.

He buys watches like I buy black shoes.

I own a lot of black shoes.

Anyway, look what I found in his watch case!  A picture of me in college holding A DEMON!

Yes, too much makeup and look at my nails and there may be a dead dog in my giant hair, who can tell?

The back of the picture tells me that this is the outside cat “Baby” that my dorm-mates and I adopted in Texas one year.

I remember Baby.  Baby was before I realized cats think I have dead birds in my boobage.

But there, cat people, who have been writing me nasty emails. I once liked cats.

Also, it’s not like I kicked a real cat, unlike how I kick pigeons, and it’s not like I’m stabbing cats, unlike how I stab pigeons, and it’s not like I’m setting cats on fire, unlike — you know what?  I’ll just stop there before the pigeon lovers start taking me too seriously again.

Besides, I lost my butane torch.

    Why do I have sudden urge to dig up and listen to some Taylor Dayne cassingles?

    Jeepers, Ginny,

    You must need a rototiller to comb through that hair. How thick is it? Can you knock your husband out with it when it’s wet?

    I didn’t think Glamour Shots used live animals as props.

    Look up “hawt” in any dictionary and this picture is beside the definition.

    see…i wanted and got a new watch for Christmas and I bought my last one last February. I was also asked “dont you have enough watches?” I only have a handfull of nice ones. I would love to have 6 million. I can go to ashfords online and browse for hours. It’s a sickness.

    Uh, why do you look the same age now as in your college picture? Not fair. I look (and feel) about a hundred years older than any college picture of me.

    You’re adorable. Smokin’ adorable.

    And what’s the line legendarily attributed to Johnny Carson?

    “Put the damn cat down and I will.”

    Here’s the deal…..your husband has a cherished place he keeps his cherished things . One of which, of course , is a cherished photo taken a long time ago and far away. So every time he opens the watch case there is his most cherished sweetheart. ‘Nuff said.

    I think that pretty romantic, and its a cute picture.
    I have my wife’s 5th grade school picture, and her college picture in my wallet. My father-in law gave them to me before he passed away. He carried them around in his wallet. Now I ask people if they want to see a picture of my wife, and I pull out her 5th grade picture.

    Beaner, you reveal yourself to be a young-un, so here goes:

    Supposedly Carson once had a comely actress on his show who arrived at the interview couch with a cat. She supposedly asked Carson, “Would you like to pet my pussy?” To which Carson supposedly rendered the above quote.

    I believe this has all been officially dismissed as a fabrication, but it’s too good a line to just go away.

    Thanks Buc!
    Not a young un….more like old & pre Alzheimers I think.
    I do remember that story now….very funny.
