Doc Edgerton Milk
     There's always something filmically horrible, yet fascinating, about a glass of milk in mid-air, the milk globules doing all those interesting things they do in Edgerton photos. Except, of course, the stopped motion bit.
     I had occasion to view such a display this evening, when the newest cat, young Phillip, upended a tray table bearing a large glass of milk - placed there, unwisely, by my first born. He wasn't to blame, though, for he hadn't yet seen Phillip in full flight around the computer area, and had no idea that he would take that kind of route. (Yes, around the computer area. My laptop was lightly baptized, and the keyboard for the regular computer somewhat as well. The carpet received a rather significant baptism. All is well now, but it provided at least a half hour of cleanup fun.)

And yet I am not envious of your clean up fun! Very mature of me I think.

My cat loves knocking glasses over. Loves it. I can't leave a glass unattended for two minutes, because he'll stick his paw in there trying to get some to drink and knock it over. And then he drinks it off the floor. My cat is bad.

Actually, your cat is Cat, which a cat would, I'm sure, hasten to assure you is Good.

True, very true. And I love him dearly, no matter how much liquid he spills on the floor. (plus, he lets me put stupid costumes on him!)

See, that's how we remind them that we are, in fact, the ones in charge.

"Mooommmm? This laptop SMELLS FUNNY."

"Oh, don't worry, dear, it's just been anointed with DOC EDGERTON'S STOP-ACTION MILK!"

"Phew. So it's a LACTOP, now, huh?"

Part of the reason I love you is your wit - thanks for making me laugh out loud!

(P.S. You do know that, by coming in off the books, you don't see half of my posts? Think of the pure gold you're missing!)

I'll consider logging in if you'll commit to doing the voice acting for that commercial. Get your honorary daughter to play the kid and I'll throw in a goat and... ...A NEW CAR!!!!!

Maybe.

Working text for the jingle:

"If you think you're moving / but you're not
Try the milk that alwayys / hits the spot
DOC! DOC EDGER! DOC EDGERTON'S STOP-AAAAACTION MIIIIIILK!"

Uhhuh, are you sure Philip didn't do it on purpose? All that milk to drink off the floor!

Heh - he was long gone before the stuff actually hit the floor, and appeared to have been sufficiently weirded out by the entire affair that he stayed away from the dining room for a significant time thereafter. So if it was indeed his clever plan to gain access to milk, it did not go as planned. Silly cat.
