Kuri: What were you thinking?
Hiyu: I can’t believe you said baby slugs are a sign of spring.
Loki: Yeah, that makes no sense. You have us. Why care about slugs?
Me: Slugs are surprisingly interesting. Did you know they have thousands of teeth?
Kuri: I don’t want to know that.
Loki: If you want to know it’s spring, I can shed some light on that.
Me: I don’t believe you just said that.
Kuri: We’re shedding. Get it? That’s a sure sign of spring.
Hiyu: Anyway, back to us. You’ve been neglecting us.
Me: Don’t think so. We play several times a day and I always give you attention when you ask.
Kuri: You went on vacation.
Loki: Yeah, and left us here to shed on our own.
Me: I came back.
Hiyu: You brought gifts for everyone, but us.
Me: I broke out the catnip and you already had a new toy.
Loki: It’s not enough.
Kuri: Why do we only get Fridays? We should have a lot more days on the blog.
Hiyu: Kuri’s right. We can talk about all sorts of things all the time. How could anything be more important than us?
Me: Readers like to hear about other things too. Not everything is about you and your opinions.
Loki: We can read more books.
Hiyu: I like documentaries too, especially about birds.
Kuri: I can recite poetry.
Hiyu: I’m very philosophical.
Me: Yes, you guys are great, but you only get Fridays.
Kuri: You keep that up and we’ll never stop shedding on you.
Loki: I’ll wake you up in the middle of the night.
Me: You already do all of that.
Hiyu: Cat pile on top of her.
Kuri and Loki: Cat pile! Cat pile!
Me: Love you guys too.
