Mondays can be rough, and it's difficult to even get out of your cardboard box in the sun in the morning...
Mrrr, what? Oh, um, no, I wasn't sleeping! No, I was just... I was just trying to find a sense of "oneness" with this keyboard, because that's always what I do whenever I begin work on a new composition! Genius CAN come overnight, you know... it just usually involves a bit of sleeping and dreaming.
Good thing you took my request literally, human, because I was NOT about to start walking my little pugbutt home in this weather. You know how pruny my paws get if I spend more than a few minutes in water! It's not a fun feeling for me, and I can't imagine it's a fun feeling for you either, since you're the one who has to hear the whining I do when it happens. This sling-walking rig you whipped up is far preferable, if you ask me!
