Those of you who know me well (all both of you) may recall that I have a Junk Threshold, which, when met, elicits a metamorphosis in which I grow fangs, claws, horns, and a bifurcated tail. The hayfork doesn’t appear unless I’m also hormonal, which never, never happens. JUST ASK ME AND I WILL TELL YOU SO.

I’m pleased to report that once we were made aware of these inhumane conditions, a bright, comfy machine-made blanket was procured for this sad, shivering, underprivileged child.
