Sorry, Can't Lament Now, There's a Cat on My Lap

I was about to write a really good Tisha B’Av post. I even had something to say that’s different from what I said four years ago or what I said two years ago. But then I ran into a problem. There’s a cat on my lap.

Dancer (who is being renamed to Giles), chose this morning to get on my lap, and hang out with me. For the first time. Ever. And he’s purring. Which leaves me unable to get into a proper lamenting state of mind. Which makes it hard to write a good Tisha B’Av post. Which leaves me explaining to you all why I’m not writing this post, rather than writing it.

Oh well, several days left for me to actually write  a lamenting post.
