What Do I Do Now

We have all been there. You jumped into a situation without thinking it all the way through and find yourself asking, “What Do I Do Now?”

Ah-ha! Caught my sister!

Ah-ha! Caught my sister!

No reader will be shocked to discover that Typhoon lives life with the “Pounce First” philosophy while rarely thinking of the consequences of his actions. Typhoon prefers to live life at full speed and setbacks dealt with only once they have arisen.

Now what happens if I let go? What do I do now?

Now what happens if I let go?

When Typhoon spotted Cheoah sleeping peacefully on the deck, he really had no choice but to jump and grab her. But, he expected her to jump up and wrestle, giving him the advantage of momentum. Instead, she just eyed him carefully and bided her time. Hence, our little furry friend was left with a problem. If he releases her, she pounces without any hesitation. If he holds her, he tires and she conserves her strength. Release and defend. Or hold and tire. Thus, the choice looms.

What do I do now?

The Queen and Decorum

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
