Sullen

Yesterday Mom's family members left.
Things returned to normal.
We went to get the mail and visit the Nice Ladies.
We spent time out on the patio.

And yet, I was not back to normal.


I was moody; sullen even.


Mom hung out with Computer Aunt.
Daddy came home.

I played with Mom for a little bit, but had difficulty
keeping interested in the string.

Auntie came over and eventually Uncle too.

At some point I pined for my nighttime recon.


I sat in my Box of Rebellion.


I investigated the scents of Mom's nieces
that remained on the blankets.


Ultimately, however, I couldn't shake my mood 
and returned to the back of the couch.


Then, for the second time in my life, I curled up 
in my cat bed on the couch.


To make matters more unbelievable,
when Mom offered to take me for a nighttime recon...

...I declined and remained in my cat bed.
