Man-cat vignette

Mandycat circulated back and forth from the living room to the dining room hinting at the kitchen.

“Like Lassie, she’s trying to lead us to the food,” Smith said.

“She thinks it’s that time again,” I said.

“Yeah,” he said. “I put down my footstool and put down my slippers and she assumes I’m going to feed her.”

“It’s the dance between cat and man.”

“And the man always loses.”

“But is it a competition?” I asked. “Or is it a dance?”

“Both, both. With the man losing. It’s a metaphor for man vs. woman; man always loses.”

“So, kitty cat, are you happy now,” Smith asked Mandy, “or do you want food?”
