Creampuff, our ditziest housemate, has established her favorite spot on the printer, right next to my mom’s computer. My mom loves the printer, especially because she got it as a review product through the Vine program.
Creampuff has taken over this spot. “Let that upstart Pumpkin and the household dog have the couch,” she says, giving us The Look. “Besides,” she adds, “I get to look out the window without moving.”
Even Creampuff is too tactful to acknowledge that Pumpkin won’t fit on the printer. Pumpkin is as round as her name and, alas, growing rounder under my mon’s benevolent policy towards felines.
“Tiger lived to be 20,” my mom says. “I had 15 years of veterinary warnings. No more!”
