Some days you’re a cat, and other days you’re a cat just trying your best to catch a tiny hat on the back of your head.
The tip of the hat is just close enough that Murphy can almost grab hold of it, but not quite. He whips his head back and forth as if on a swivel, trying to get a glimpse of the elusive hat, but it always remains just out of reach.
Isn’t that how we all feel right now? The holidays are just days away, and we’re also so close to the fresh start that New Year’s brings. But we still have a million things to do before we get to relax and let life happen to us.
Wrapping gifts, running errands, signing and mailing Christmas cards, creating New Year’s resolutions, making nutritionally reckless choices that your resolutions will hopefully soon fix — we’re all Murphy this week.
