In my LoL vol. 14 post, I described how I would like to retire. Along those lines, I have accrued several of the necessary items.
Book? Check. I have tons.
Cat? Check-recently acquired Mickey, who belonged to a friend. She’s 10.5 years old, which means she probably won’t be alive when I retire unless I have to rename her Lazarus-kitty, but it’s an important contributor to happiness. Now, about the “cat in my lap” bit—I need to revise this to “educated cat who will curl up in my LAP rather than on my CHEST” due to unforeseen circumstances.
Chair? Not yet.
Wine? Ran out.
