What the cat did

You might’ve seen my post the other day about my cat registering his disappointment that I wasn’t around to play games with him for a few days. At first it was cute, but last night it was payback time.

I came into my home office this morning to find ol’ Floyd had gotten to rooting around in my bag of ACES handouts. He dragged one of the handouts out of the bag and chewed it to shreds. The handout was from Phil Blanchard’s “Look, this is simple” seminar.

Sorry, but that was a just a hair too symbolic for me.

    Ouch. Sounds like ’twas a real catastrophe. (I had to, sorry.) Speaking (or rathr, typing) of which, would the only words that end in “trophe” be catastrophe and apostrophe? And with that query of sincerity, here’s an interesting site of note: http://www.apostrophe.fsnet.co.uk/

    Because I have nothing better to do with my time:
    anastrophe
    antistrophe
    epistrophe
    limitrophe
    strophe

    Thank you, Brian, for that bit of info. I may be catatonic but you’re the cat’s meow. I was wondering why I’ve never heard songwriters use “catastrophe” in lyrics… not much use for “anastrophe” or “limitrophe” to rhyme with that word. Thanx for your time in getting that information and for posting.
