Now we know what I would have been like as a parent


Minnie comes when called, but only when she feels like it. If she’s comfortably set up in her bed in my office, or in the easy chair in the kitchen – two of her favorite spots – well, maybe she’ll come and maybe she won’t.

One recent evening I was leaving my office to go to dinner, and Minnie wouldn’t come when she was called.

“Come on,” I said.


“Let’s go,” I said.

She just stared at me blankly.

“I’ve had it up to HERE,” I said. “One of these days I’m going to lock you in my office and just leave you here. How would you like that?”
