If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to stick around and make your cat crazy.
If your cat goes crazy romping through the night, you'll wake up when she jumps on your head in excitement. Then you'll sleep fitfully and be extra-grumpy in the morning as you try to scrape the ice and ick off your windshield. Then you'll be late pulling out of the driveway and consequently get stuck in miles upon miles of the most despicable traffic. And you'll arrive at your work conference with very little patience and a severe lack of positive attitude, only to be completely overwhelmed with rheams of paper and incessant requests for "your point of view, please". And you'll keep it professional (at least out loud) until it's time to make a mad dash for night class 5 towns over, only to find that your car won't start. And then the very nice maintenance man will come to your rescue with a quick 5-second fix and a 15-minute bonus lecture on caring for your vehicle because you haven't listened to enough lecturing yet today. And then you'll poke your way through the traffic again to a 3 hour lecture (hurray!) on technology and the dangers of social networking, and you'll nod your head and smile, all the while blogging about your day. SIGH.
But let's be honest....Project Runway Allstars is on tonight, and it doesn't get any better than that. Go Mondo, go!
