Domestic scenario

Person lies down in lovely warm bath. Lovely warm bath is lovely.

Cat comes along and, to be companionable, lies down on lovely green bath mat. Lovely green bath mat really is all that.

Lovely warm bath has become slightly-less-lovely, slightly more lukewarm. Person stands up to get out of bath. Sees that cat is spread out all over lovely green bath mat.

Person looks at cat.

Cat looks at person.

Five hours later...

I am moved to quotate Ezra Pound:

As a bathtub lined with white porcelain,
When the hot water gives out or goes tepid,
So is the slow cooling of our chivalrous passion,
O my much praised but-not-altogether-satisfactory lady.

-- just because, because HOW EVOCATIVE IS THAT SIMILE? Veeeery evocative, is how evocative.

I will notate that quotate. It's got my votate.

I can't stand bathing. Instead, I sit.

As I said to you the other day, 'I am lying in the bath'. Your reply: 'No you're not, you're in the garden.' 'I told you I was lying'. Ho ho ho ho ho.
