Missed Maska and then the burnt orange-grey furry tea cups came to tea Today did not wrap its coat of calm around my heart still thudding with despair over Maska. Wanting her, talking to her, praying for her, letting guilt and grief gag me with their malice. Finished boring work at the bank. Had some almonds and cashewnuts for breakfast. Drank up half of the rose scented yoghurt lassi I had bought for the patient who hates rose scent! It was dark and the lights had gone out in that street where I bought it!

What exactly are the rewards or the consequences of trying to say Bon Appetit to an uninvited, unexpected guest? The stray grey cat had whirled into our building without being invited and had scolded us, badgered us and bullied us into feeding her the chicken she had got used to.

Saying Bon Appetit to an uninvited Surprise Guest We were watching The Bodyguard on Netflix when the uninvited surprise guest arrived at the doorstep, screaming loudly for food. She was a very thin, very hungry, very angry guest, dressed in charcoal grey and black fur with a meow to wake up the dead. She had been invading the dustbin for chicken leftovers and now thought it was time to visit the flat itself since the dustbin was empty.
