I’ve determined I’m a lion in a zoo.
A zoo in Kansas.
And you won’t believe this, Dorothy!
I have no courage.
Who in a zoo has any courage?
I am a relic being watched.
Really, honestly, doing nothing for the world.

I once went ballistic at a zoo when I caught some brats throwing stones at a mountain lion trying to get a reaction they could brag about. I promise to do the same for you.
You share your struggles in a unique way and you actively care for five rescue dogs, so you can neither say you’re a relic nor doing nothing for the world.

Thank you for your kind comment! I appreciate it.
I hope I don’t need to call on you for any rock throwers!

Are you sure that’s a zoo? Leavenworth is in Kansas. Better had D get you a hacksaw.

Thank you for your help, Carl. I promise not to ask how you have such awareness of Leavenworth – Only the worst of the worst go there.

It’s a vowels thing. People whose names have lots of vowels know about such things. On a personal level.

Ohh.. you MUST be at work.

Yes, Kay! How did you know? Have you been there?

In my own version. And today, I was feeling it. 😐
