I’m awake! I’M AWAKE!  

Several minutes ago there was a great crashing of glass. Ted, jerked from sleep, said, “God damn cat! God! Damn! Cat!” with unusual vehemence, and leapt out of bed. I followed, less annoyed but equally awake, and we searched the house, finding a slinking, guilty Zilli, but no broken glass, much less the broken crystal that I feared. We determined it must’ve been outside.

It turned out Ted’s vehemence was born from Lucy puking outside the bedroom door at 4am, an incident which I blissfully slept through. And now he, very sensibly, has gone back to bed, whereas I figure if I go back to bed I won’t get up for at least two hours and won’t start writing until 10am. So I guess I better just go ahead and go to work…

Ah the wonderful sound of a cat puking in the morning.
It can only be improved upon by the cat waiting until the moment between you raising the mouthful of soggy Life cereal from the bowl and putting it in your mouth.
