The kitty in the laundry, part 2
Your task from Friday: given the photo of the kitty in the laundry, determine both a) the name of the cat in the laundry and b) whether the laundry was dirty or clean.
The answer lies in the shape of the tail. While Edmund and Tenzing do admittedly look alike (being brothers and all) they have very different tails. Tenzing's tail has a very broad, blunt end, and Edmund's tail ends in a sharp, well-defined point.
The kitty in the photo had a blunt-ended tail…and therefore was Tenzing.
So how could you tell whether the laundry was dirty or clean based on which cat it was?
Our cats may look alike, but they certainly don't act alike. Edmund likes his laundry dirty, and thinks the best time to play in laundry is right before I prepare to wash it. On the other hand, Tenzing thinks the best laundry is the warm and soft laundry fresh from the dryer.
In other words, if the cat's trying to nest in the dirty underwear, it's Edmund; if it's trying to burrow under the clean towels, it's always Tenzing.
Jeff took the photo the other morning while I was still asleep. He said that while he was getting ready for work, Tenzing just started using his nose to burrow himself under the towels. Jeff had just enough time to dash for the camera, turn it on, and snap a quick photo as all but the tail disappeared under the pile of towels.
Along the way, we managed to establish that dingoes ate Brad's baby, Noah just finished watching The Usual Suspects, and that we do tend to put laundry on the floor.
Meanwhile, I find the fact that the current Red Wings-Hurricanes game is about to go into a third overtime extremely interesting, so I'm closing this off and going back to my hockey.
