Affliction Number One


Not a favorite subject around here.

It has always been "her" downfall.


No problem.

Memorizing a formula, a date or even a phone number.

No problem.

Algebra and Calculus.

BIG problem.

Math = mother of all fur balls (serious stuff)

So around here, we don't speak of math.

Probably explains how "she" manages to mess up dinner quite often. "She" made calzone dough once that was so hard the steak knife wouldn't cut it. Swears "she" got the measurements right..... sure "she" did.

Math. Need I say more?

So can I ask you.....

In a house where math is a very bad word,

how come there are so many numbers around here?!?

Can you say, "a.f.f.l.i.c.t.i.o.n" ???

Good, I thought you could. This is....

Affliction Number One.

Number Lust.

And oh yeah, one more thing. I wanted to let you know, I will be telling you about more of "her" afflictions, additions, obsessions or whatever you prefer to call them.

Why? Because I CAN count and there has NOT been enough kitty treats being handed out to meet my daily quota. Just saying and this is after all MY blog ;) You are game for this aren't mew?!? If not, just let me know and I'm going to sell the information to the local newspaper.....

Tell her to cough up the kitty treats this instant or you will lock yourself in the loo like your pal Howie...

Oh, Romeo "she" and I have the same affliction!!! Math has been my nemesis for as long as I can remember!! Don't judge her too harshly though. We all have our talents in different areas. Yours is a quick wit and charming personality and "hers" is obviously fabulous style!!! I hope you both have a wonderful week!

Romeo, math was never my favorite subject in school...but I sure love all the numbers that your mama has shared with us.
Tell her that I should have her designs done later today and that they are turning out purr-fectly.

Math and I don't get along very well either. I do know 1 thing, though, you're the #1 cat blogger in my book!!

I'll be watching for your other tidbits about "her". Diane

Mew and Charlie are all about seeing her obsessions! Love all the numbers!

Olive Cooper said...

Ha! Math is something serious here to us as CC had to make it through college algebra. She did it though. All those numbers are very cool to your Mom. I give Clovis a little snack once a day, if not he lets me know!

Oh my! You said the "M" word. I try to stay clear of all things "M" related. That's why I hang out with only smart people. They do the thinking for me.
Your New Friend, m.
