True story: Last night I had trouble falling and staying asleep and at one point in the middle of the night I heard Rosy move from by my feet to near my head. I expected to hear a plop and sigh as she'd settle back to sleep or maybe a few licks of my unguarded face. But no. I heard nothing. So I cracked open my eyes and saw her face right above mine, just starting at me! We stared at each other for a little while and then I petted her until she curled up into a barnacle on my side.
Was she watching me sleep and gazing at me adoringly or plotting to steal my soul? For now that question remains unanswered.
