GUEST BLOG POST! — Painting With Otto

Remember Otto? As it turns out, he’s much better with paint than he is with unfamiliar musical instruments—as my beloved friends Sasha and Nate discovered while painting their imminent baby’s room this week (“Imminent Baby” is now my Britney Spears cover band name). He likes to help. And by “help,” I mean, “‘help'”. Sasha submitted this for your perusal and enjoyment, Gentle Readers.

So with no more ado, Conversations Sasha Gets To Have With Otto, and don’t forget—Otto speaks in all caps. It’s a thing.

Sasha:  Hey, Otto. What are you up to?
Otto: NOTHING!
Sasha:  Wait, what’s that on your whiskers?
Otto: NOBODY!
Sasha:  Your whiskers are green and blue.  And you have paint on your face.
Otto: HELPING!
Sasha: Oh, no, have you been in the baby’s room?
Otto: HELPING!
Sasha: Dammit, cat! I’m eight months pregnant. Don’t make me chase you. Oh, shit. Stay out of there!
Otto: *running away* HELPIIIING!

WP note: It’s true. He was definitely HELPING. I visited the apartment last night, and Otto had at least two different colors on his neck and whiskers. Good thing everything goes with black.

    Keiun likes to “help” when I’m folding laundry, where helping consists of:
    * lying on top of the pile of warm laundry.
    * trying to creep out onto the specific shirt I’m trying to fold.
    * rolling over on her side and batting at any object that I’m moving around in the folding process.
    * pouncing on pairs of socks or other small objects that might conceivably be prey animals, and attempting to gut them with her hindpaws.

      Re: cats and pigments, some people look at a white cat, and think, “Hey, canvas!” (At least she used vegetable-based food colorings, not paint.)

  2. Yep. Confused. Unless…there’s….someone else named Sasha as well as myself?

    • There may be one or two other Sashas in the world beside you.
