Because I’m the best son in the world, I just went to the grocery store to get my dad his father’s day gift. While I was there, I decided I’d go ahead and get an energy drink, because I don’t really feel like making coffee at this hour, and I have no desire to sleep for a few hours, even though I was feeling kind of sleepy. So I got a Mountain Dew MDX (tastes pretty good…heavily sugary. None of the bite that’s usually associated with energy drinks though).
So I come home, and sit in front of my computer, and which is Kitty 's cue to come jump into my lap. Except when she came over to do so, I was opening said drink, which prompted her to scurry off like a bat out of hell. It should be noted that this isn’t unusual. She’s probably the archetypal scardy cat. I thought nothing of it, assuming it was the hissing of the bottle when it opened. A few minutes go by, and she eventually gets the nerves to jump in my lap again. I pet her a bit, then reach for my drink. As soon as I pick it up, she freaks out, and jumps out of my lap, and kind of stares at me for a moment, as if thinking “What the hell do you have and why does it want to kill me!” I look back, kind of baffled. Then I show the drink to her, and kind of wiggle it around. She takes off running
Maybe she just doesn’t like green?
