THE CAT CAME BACK – Marilyn Armstrong

My bowl of chicken soup was sitting on the kitchen table. It had been quite a while since I nuked it and it was probably barely tepid at this point.


Probably I should nuke it again, though if it had ever contained anything other than artificial flavoring and salt, nuking it would surely finish it off.

Nonetheless, I was disinclined to touch my soup. In fact, I didn’t want to go anywhere near it. I was standing just a little bit left of the bowl. I was still wrapped in a damp beach towel while my sandy, soggy bathing suit lay in a wet lump on the bathroom floor. I promised myself I’d go wash it out any minute.

Except for the cat. The toothy cat’s grin was hanging in the air.

The Cheshire Cat was back. His grin was hanging in the air in my kitchen. Any minute now his body would show up too.

He wanted my soup.

  1. I am assuming you were grinding your teeth when You broke your tooth Marilyn? Sorry I could not help myself. I was also going to say something about Micheal Jackson but realised his home was Neverland not Wonderland. oh dear I do think I have had too much coffee today. Come to OZ plenty of rabbit holes available here. In fact millions.
