Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective lives mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch—either in illustration or word form—and the other would make a companion to the sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise makes both minds more nimble. Hopefully.
We’ve seen the same damn cat every morning for eight freakin’ years on the same freakin’ step with that same freakin’ mind-control freakin’ face. Eight. Years.
Every single damn morning, Hector barks his damn head off, like Satan himself is trying to jam a red hot coal in his right damn nostril. Every. Time.
No, I don’t know the definition of insanity.
But I do know there’s something messed up about that cat.
