”We were at a restaurant for lunch and I had onion rings with mine.
Kitty hadn’t seen them before, and he wanted to try one.
I gave him half of an onion ring.

His expression as he chewed was so horrified, but he swallowed the bite.
Then he said ‘ew’ and put the rest of the onion ring right in the middle of his apple sauce, sticking out like a cigarette butt.

It was really cute.”

An Egg Sandwich Please

”Kitty asked for an egg sandwich, and I said ‘Ok, in a little while, if you’re good.’
I walked into the kitchen a bit later, and he had gotten out the egg carton and broken about 6 eggs. They were in random places around the kitchen.
‘I wanted to help you make the egg sandwich.’ He said.
I didn’t even know how to clean that up.
The little scoop*.”
[*A pet name for Kitty when he's being mischievous.]
