Yesterday, Mr. Brutalism texted me while he was out running errands and asked me to take a pic of the grocery list on the kitchen door and send it to him so he could shop for groceries.
Happy to oblige, I skipped downstairs, snapped the photo, and sent it.
As a bonus, I also took a close up of the cat's anus and sent that along, sans comment.
He never replied to this bit of inspiration, but later in the day, I received an email from him with the subject line "Awesome LA house!"
He knows how much I look at LA real estate as I am constantly planning our future there. I send him links to houses on Trulia all the time, but this was the first time he sent me a link. Encouraged, I clicked open the email - only to find the photo of the cat's sphincter.
He also sent this along: an entire genre of cat butt coloring books - available on Amazon.
On one hand, these are my people and I've never felt so seen. On the other hand...perhaps this is the impetus we all need to take our business elsewhere.
I love a happy ending,
