scrubbed with shampoo and not allowed jump out? Susan coos at me, telling me I’m a good girl. Good Girl! I have no choice, so I shake myself, which is not easy in the confines of the sink. Hee, hee, Susan can’t move without letting go of me, and we know what would happen then; so she gets soaked. I don’t care at this point

I look like a drowned rat!

I charge around the apartment trying to dry off, shaking and running like a mad thing, I’m still shivering, it is frigging cold

Shake it all about!

running around with wet fur. I’d like to see Susan run around with wet fur …. Um, maybe not.  It is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend but this corona thing has scuttled most family get-togethers.
