Whoa! That’s some strong smell. It’s enough to curl my feathers.
Hell, Polly doesn’t need a freakin’ cracker. Polly needs a goddam bath. Where’s that birdbath, anyway? I know I saw it around here somewhere.
No, don’t come near me. Not today. Come back tomorrow. We can talk then. I promise I’ll clean up my act. I’ll put on a really good show. Tomorrow.

“I’m Catwoman,” the creature sitting in the chair smoking a cigarette said.
“Catwoman?” Jason said, raising his eyebrows in a surprised expression. “Seriously, with those hairy legs of yours, you look more like Batman than Catwoman to me.”
“That’s not fair,” the creature hissed. “I was Batman last week. Besides, cats don’t shave their legs, do they?” And then it purred.
“May I approach you?” Jason cautiously asked.
“You may,” it said, letting out another soft purr.
“I’ve heard a rumor about you,” Jason admitted, “but I thought the probability of ever meeting someone with your, um, nature, was extremely low.”
“So now that you’ve met me, what insidious plan are you hatching?” it hissed.
“I’m not one to prognosticate,” Jason said. “I just want to understand what makes you tick. After all, you are the very first gender fluid superhero we’ve had on this ward.”

Poor Donald Trump. He doesn’t like what he sees when he Googles himself. So what is the big baby going to do? He’s sending out Larry Kudlow, Director of the National Economic Council and his chief economic adviser, to “take a look” at whether Google and its search engine should be regulated by the government.
It’s not surprising, since our President gets all of his daily briefings from Fox News, that Trump’s tweets about Google being biased against him came the morning after Fox Business host Lou Dobbs aired an interview with pro-Trump commentators Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, popularly known as “Diamond and Silk.” They have long claimed that their online videos are being suppressed by tech companies like Google because of their conservative views and support for Trump.
Poor Donald. He can’t handle the truth.
Cee Neuner is at it again with another edition of her Share Your World prompt. Here are this week’s questions with my answers.
Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?
I never did like walnuts or pecans, but I used to love unsalted roasted peanuts. Unfortunately, I have suffered from a number of instances of diverticulitis and my doctor has strongly suggested that I avoid eating nuts, seeds, or popcorn.
Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closed. Why would I keep my closet doors open when I’m sleeping? I’m not a sleepdresser.
Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
I hate being late for anything, so I tend to time my arrivals to be at least five to ten minutes early. I lose patience with people who are habitually late. That’s just rude.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
The fact that Paul Manafort was found guilty by the grand jury, that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty, and that things seem to be closing in on Trump. I am so looking forward to the day when I can write, in answer to what I appreciated or made me smile, that Donald Trump was indicted, impeached, imprisoned, or otherwise removed from office.
“There’s only one way outta here. Get on that horse over there. I’ll open the gate, smack a few horses on their butts, and get ‘em all to run out of the corral. Then you ride up to the gate and I’ll hop on.”
“This better work, pal, or we’ll be hangin’ from them gallows at dawn.”
