Hamlet & juliet & the new toy

  1. 1. Hamlet and Juliet Get A New Toy A story of exploration and discovery
  2. 2. O nce upon a time, not very long ago, I wrapped the top post of our railing so the cats wouldn’t scratch it. As I wrapped it, I put a toy in there for the cats. Anyone who says cats don’t talk has never watched when cats are faced with a situation like this.
  3. 3. Dramatis Personae Hamlet, 4 years old Juliet, 18 months
  4. 4. The toy…ready for exploration by the cats.
  5. 5. Hamlet: What the hell is that?
  6. 6. Juliet: I dunno. I’ve never seen anything like it!
  7. 7. Hamlet: Me either. Climb up there and see what the damned thing is. Juliet: Who? Me?
  8. 8. Juliet: It looks OK from here. Hamlet: Get a closer look.
  9. 9. Juliet: Figures. I’ve gotta be the one to crawl up here. Hmm. Looks OK from here.
  10. 10. Juliet: Hey, Ham. This thing looks OK. Pretty cool, in fact.
  11. 11. Hamlet: Good job, Juliet. Now if he’d put the camera away and get out of here, we could play with it.
