The other day I was at Petsmart picking up a new scratching post for Emma and Gigi. I stopped by the Kitty Adoption Room and felt sorry at each cage in turn. The Ginger Cat paid me the most attention but I knew from the start I would not be taking anyone home with me.
As I was going towards the check out, a woman of a certain age walking towards me shouted out, "Santa Clause. Santa Clause!" She did so with such enthusiasm that for a moment I thought perhaps I knew her. But no, she was just creating an early (September) Santa Sighting.
"Have you been a good girl?" I asked?
"Are you bringing me a present? she inquired.
I just smiled knowingly and whispered, "Merry Christmas!"
