Does SOH "discussions" count? Some out there get pretty intense. Just remember, arguing with some folks is like kicking a skunk, short term gratification followed by long term isolation.

No. Resisted the invitation this morning to try one more time to explain to the difference between expression and repression to someone so deliberately and willfully ignorant the only way to win or even avoid the argument is to choose not to have it in the first place.

I'm not gay, but I know scientifically people are born attracted to one gender, both, or the other, so I got into a 10 minute long argument with another kid on wether being gay was a choice,

She has been rather controlling lately over some personal stuff within our relationship. So I tried to start the conversation approaching it as kindly as possible, but we both got really heated and my yelling went a little to far and then she was throwing some shoes. Good times I tell ya.πŸ™„

I threw plates once. At a wall. They were thrift store plates, though. I think the wall suffered the most.

Exactly. Married life demands daily arguments. Yesterday's was about the quality of potatoes I put on the Shepherd's pie I baked for dinner. The wife demands skinned potatoes and I mash them skins and all.

Is Harry an orange cat, by any chance?

Orange cats always win, in my experience.

dudley northern Virginia woods
08/15/16 6:12 pm

They do. We've had three. Present Orange is Sparky who I found under a parked car in an underground parking lot three years ago. Harry is gray and white, 18 pounds. We found him abandoned in an RV park near Tupelo,MS. Scrawny little guy then. Named him after the local vet who gave him his first checkup. Harry loves Sparky though and vice-verse. So maybe it's the influence....

My daughter has an orange cat, Elwood. He's a rescue. He's one of the most entertaining cats I've known. He's interested in everyone and everything, and likes to help do anything - to the point that he's obnoxious, and he scares large dogs. He's the only cat I know who likes to play iPad games and watch YouTube videos of birds & squirrels, & watch basketball on TV. He's taken over my daughters office chair, and likes to be spun in it.

Wonderful! They can be full of wonder. Alert and aware in a way that amazes. I used to have a cat like that in Oakland,CA. Her name was Emma Peel. She was a tuxedo though.

susanr Colorado
08/16/16 11:49 am

Great name!

Tuxedos are another interesting type. The tuxedo in my profile pic (one of the cats I housesit for pretty often) is one of my all-time favorite cats. I think of him as a "working" cat. He deals with rodents in his neighborhood, is pretty self-sufficient, seems to think he's a dog, and occasionally turns very affectionate - both with humans and with his owners' dogs. He's getting on in years, and I will miss him terribly when the inevitable happens.

08/16/16 6:09 pm

Sweet!

I'd love to have cats (and maybe a dog) of my own - I haven't had any since 1989, when my last cat, a tiny feisty Siamese, died. But that would severely curtail my housesitting ability, and I really love doing it - both for the critters, and the house and its location and fabulous view.

dudley northern Virginia woods
08/16/16 9:05 pm

I know what you mean. House-sitting in such a beautiful area is a great gig. We have ten cats and four dogs. Most are elderly, taking meds and special diets. I can't go anywhere. They're my soft and furry anchors keeping me from drifting.

Ps. Susan, We have a cat named Susan too. She has thumbs (polydactyl). Small, dark tabby with a Betty Boop personality.

Wow! That a lot to take care of! You need a house sitter like me.

And I love the mental image you've given me of your Susan cat.
