Comments: Well, that was exciting

Did I read that right? You would unloose Twyla's oomph on your cousin the mouse, but not on a descendant of Barney? Another self-hating mammal reveals himself to the world, I guess -- and his private washer and dryer to the rest of New York. And you want ME to buy YOUR book, Mr. Francis Heaney Rockefeller self-hater?

I admit I do feel I owe you something for all the free Six Thingses...

Twyla would have had a much better chance of catching a mouse than either Rose or I would have. Those things are fast.

What, you don't have a gold-plated humane robotic mouse catcher over there at Heaney Towers?

Here is something you probably didn't know:

bird --> ptak

mammal --> ssak (both S's pronounced separately)

What sort of bird?

Posted by Elizabeth at June 22, 2006 01:15 PM

A small, dust-covered one. Beyond that my expertise does not extend, alas.

Ah, life in the city.

One day this spring, a bird managed to fly all the way down our chimney and end up in the firebox of our masonry heater (sort of a stone wood stove). The firebox has a glass door, so it was basically cat TV! We were able to get the bird out without incident. Now the cats keep their eye on that glass door in case anything so interesting should turn up again.

Dude, consider:

Denying Twyla her attempt to conquer the avian intruder is akin to denying yourself the opportunity to solve a cryptic crossword.

Dude, also consider:

I just used the word "akin" in a post. Heh-heh. Heh heh-heh! Also, "avian".

You going to San Antonio? Are you going to post from there, or after? We stay-at-home NPLers want to know.
