You Can Say You Knew Me When

We have 3 cats. Based on this fact alone it shouldn't take a statistician to tell you that at some point at least one of them will puke during the night.

It was at around 2 AM that the tell-tale gulping and retching noise started at the foot of the bed. Both of us sat bolt upright, and 4 hands groped for the offending creature in the dark.
Finally, Dokken flung one of them off the bed and we both lay back down, hearts pounding, while we listened to the poor little guy hurl up his hairball.

Any good German chemist will tell you the best ideas come to you while you sleep, and it was as I was drifting back to Slumberland that I realized how I will make millions of dollars: an alarm clock that sounds like a cat barfing. Seriously, I sleep through most anything, but will leap out of bed like a ninja at that awful awful sound.

You can all ride on my yacht.
