I just found out through my sources that Tuesday was the last day of Summer. Why wasn't this a big deal?? I should have been notified! Seriously? Tuesday was the last day of summer? Ever??
I called Tiger, Anime, and Gracie in for a meeting to discuss how this was going to affect us. Plans would have to be made! Whatever happened to Global Warming?? I thought Summer would pretty much last forever because Big Pinkie doesn't have a hybrid!
My little clan filed in with trepidation to hear my news. They get spooked when I call meetings. Gracie in particular. I didn't include Big Pinkie or The Lady as they really have noting to contribute and would probably just patronize me. The following s a transcript of the meeting:
Me: Alright guys, I have called you here on a matter of grave importance. Gracie! Come back! You haven't even heard what its about yet!
Me: I have bad news. Summer is gone.
Tiger: What do you mean, gone?
Me: It's something called Fall now. Summer is gone and I don't know if its coming back.
Me: Oookay. We've lost Gracie. I guess its up to us to figure this out.
Tiger: Are we going to run out of food?
Me: I wish I could tell you that we weren't buddy, but I just don't know. What I do know is that it is getting colder. You know what that means.
Tiger: The big ball of fire in the sky is going out again?
Me: Stop. Just let me talk. Maybe you should eat something to calm down. No, I don't think the temperature has anything to do with the ball of fire. I think this means my arch-nemesis is back in town... Old Man Winter!
Gracie (from bedroom): Aaagh!
Me: Yes. Its very frightening. I don't want to have to do it, but I think this means I will have to meet him face to face for a final showdown. I hope that I can count on all of you for support... yes? Anime? You have something to say?
Anime: This happens every year you dingbat. Like when Big Pinkie and The Lady go on vacation? There is a Summer every year and there is a Fall every year. If you had anything remotely resembling long-term memory you would know that. How do you remember all of that other crap about celebrities and stuff and not remember that the seasons change?
Me: Ah. Well. This changes things a bit doesn't it? Meeting adjourned. Get away from my food dish fatty.
I shared this with all of you at the risk of great personal embarrassment. I did so because I feel sure that there are other cats out there who might not have been aware of this. Unlike Little Miss Know It All Anime. Stupid Anime with her freakish memory.
See you tomorrow.
