1. I lied in bed until noon with the Palinode,
2. and all the cats stopped fornicating and fighting and futzing about and came to nuzzle us,
3. and there was the last of the maple bacon to eat, fried until extra crispy,
4. and I had a hot bath with a good book,
5. and my post-writing deadline vacation was a fine, fine thing.
Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in Grace in Small Things.
