Went and picked Jessie up this afternoon. Got pulled over for speeding on the way home. I have somewhat of a lead foot. Drives Erik crazy, but it is what it is. Anyhoo...doing 18 mph over the speed limit. The officer comes to my window, I hand him my license, registration and insurance card and I tell him "you got me". We discuss the speeding and he looks in and sees Jessie we discuss her a little then he goes back to his squad car. I had told him it's been about 30 years since I've had a ticket, and he asked me if I wanted one now. Of course not we both say, but I told him that I'm not going to make up an excuse...I wasn't paying attention, so whatever happens happens. He comes back to the car and we talk a little more and I told him that in all honesty, the reason I wasn't paying attention was because I hadn't seen my cat in three days and she was meowing non-stop telling me about her time at the kitty hospital and I was responding to her and not paying attention to my speed. He looked at me and smiled and said... "NOW I'm gonna write you a ticket"...then he laughed and told me to have a good day. Whew!!!
So Jessie is home...GOING INSANE!!! I was able to compromise a little. I have to keep her in the cage while at work or away from home, and at night while sleeping. I have the upstairs closed off to her so she can wander around in the three rooms downstairs with us while we're home. She hasn't sat down for a single second since she got home. She is wandering from room to room literally meowing NON-STOP.
I used to work at the College of Medicine and I remember on more than a few occasions having to drop paperwork off in an office on the 5th floor. I remember walking past a door that had a sign saying "radiation"...I always felt dizzy when I walked past it. It always felt like the floor was moving. Really weird. Never thought too much of it, just thought it was strange. Years later, I read that some people have a sensitivity to stuff like that. They can actually feel a difference in a room almost like walking thru an unseen fog. I thought that was interesting. Now...maybe it's all in my head, but I had to roll the windows down in the car when bringing Jessie home because I was feeling nauseous. I have a headache now. She is supposed to be safe to be around so long as I don't snuggle with her and I wash my hands after petting her. This has got to be in my head. I hope so anyway..... < : -\
I think I'm going to go take a couple shots of jaeger...(I know...any excuse will do). ; - )
I'm glad she's home though....my baby girl. I missed her!
All is at peace right now.....
