/random 100

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Monday, December 6, 2004 at 1:17 pm by flerly.

I’m walking through the kitchen to grab my purse and run out to fetch lunch for Jim and I, when I hear lots of noise coming from around the corner in the foyer. They are cat noises: the sounds of random objects from around the house that have been deemed as cat toys for the day — remote controls, pill bottles, pens, lighters, place mats, stray plastic Halloween pumpkin eyes….

Today upon investigation I find Motley playing with one of the nails with attached plastic cable holder which she has swiped from some random place on the stairway where one of the network cables has pulled loose and is threatening to trip innocent nighttime stairclimbers. Beside her on the floor is not surprisingly the ink pen I was using at my desk last night. What is a surprise is the random refrigerator-magnet word that she’s managed to remove.

I chuckle at the appropriately odd assortment of toys she’s chosen to assemble this afternoon, and in the way crazy-cat-people do, I decide to tell her so. You crazy cat! Just hanging out with your pen, nail and random word, eh? I lean over to get the items, since it was the last surviving pen on my desk, that nail would be hell to discover in the darkness on a bare foot, and I’m just curious what word Motley has pulled from the fridge to represent herself…

I chuckle more as I replace the word in the top right corner of the fridge by itself — a place of honor to commemorate the occasion. The word is random.

    that’s almost spooky.

    Motley had a motley assortment of ‘toys’. But that’s not as fun once you realize the random word magnet was ‘random’. lol

    agreed… One of those things that as soon as I saw what the word was, I was wishing somebody was around as witness to the weirdness.
