June 24 – There’s no such thing as an ordinary cat.


While changing my wallet the other day, I ran my fingers through the old one before throwing it out. I’ve had it for, wow I don’t know how long, but it’s probably been close to a decade, and you never know what old treasures you risk losing forever. Somebody’s phone number, a reminder, or a fortune from a fortune cookie. I found none of the first two yet five fortunes and I understand why I kept each one:

  • Good news of a long-awaited event will arrive soon.
  • Expect much of yourself and little of others.
  • Be careful! Straight trees often have crooked roots.
  • Let’s finish this up now, someone is waiting for you on that.
  • There’s no such thing as an ordinary cat.

That fourth one though, as a professional procrastinator, it kind of creeped me out when I got it. And I learned how to say Red, Be full, Living room and Space Shuttle in Chinese.

When not exploring the tapes and CDs, I’ve been finding the first record of the Rolling Stones’ Hot Rocks to be my workout album of choice of late. I have also actually shifted from the bad side of 150 to the better side for enough time now that I am comfortable mentioning it. And then, I wore shorts the other day, out, outside in the world, in public, for a good three hours. I haven’t done that in many years and I can say I didn’t hear anyone laughing at me behind my back. Of course my hearing’s not what it used to be, and frankly, I wasn’t even paying attention.
