One of My Typical Emotional Journeys via IM
Michelle: MIKE! HI!!
Mike: Hello my sweet
Michelle: Are you in NY?
Mike: Tomorrow night. Then i'm all yours
Michelle: i cant wait to cradle you! I'll be playing this on my mouthharp upon your arrival:
Mike: why are all classical music stars busted? Kiri Ti Kanewa, Yevgeny Kissin
Michelle: Uh, Perlman has polio.
Mike: Stop. You're lying.
Michelle: You're kidding.
Michelle: Michael. You didn't know Itzhak Perlman walked around on polio crutches?
Mike: Those braces do nothing for his legs.
You have blocked Michael. You can no longer see each other online or chat together.
(One minute later.)
You have unblocked Michael.
Michelle: So... hey, I got contacts. I took a pic wanna see?
Mike: omg! You got braces!
I'm literally crying laughing
Michelle: Wait. Is it funny that its called the cry of the cat? Or that they develop to be severely mentally retarded?
Mike: BABIES MEOW LIKE KITTENS. If that's not so cute, I don't know what is.
My bad I meant to send this:
Mike: My heart just exploded.
Michelle: No no seriously my bad:
Mike: I need more
Michelle: OK, Mike, this might be the best one:
HIS NAME IS FRIPPLE
The foot! Haha!
(A minute later.)
Michelle: oh my god.
Oh no. It’s from a website about handicapped animals….
Oh No. Read this:
I have a handicapped cat named Fripple. As a kitten in a barn he was shaken by a dog and sustained back injuries. My daughter took him from the barn and brought him home. He walks flat footed in the back and has no bladder and bowel control. He wears a diaper and is a happy little guy.
Fripple also had a huge sore on his heel that took a year to heal because of the way he walked on it. I tried many many many contraptions and bandages and finally I took a baby shoe and put a gel cushion inside and of course his foot was bandaged and he wears the shoe and will continue to wear the shoe his whole life because if he doesn't he tears his foot open again.
He's happy and very very VERY loved by the whole family. I have never seen a cat like this one he lies in my lap at diaper changing time and purrs and never moves while his foot is tended just gives me those goo goo eyes while purring. He also never tries to take anything off. He's my special gift. I thank God for this little guy every day.
Michelle: Sorry… I have to go cry for a million years.
