Crisis Averted

An early morning bout with the NYS unemployment benefits website, along with a completely collapsed circadian rhythm, has me back in bed by 8:30 am, easily about to fall asleep.

I'm in my accustomed position on my right side, eyes closed and beginning to breathe deeply, when I hear, from down the hall, the rhythmic, distressed "mmrrr-aah-ah-ah-ah" of the cat yelling as she runs. She tears into the room, leaps upon the bed, runs up the bed to the crook of my arm and flops down with all the force she can muster.

Crisis averted, she begins to purr like a microwave cooking a casserole, and we both quickly fall asleep.
