She Knows What She's Doing, She's Super Bad Now
"But, my dear Sebastian, you can't seriously believe it all."
"I mean about Christmas and the star and the three kings and the ox and the ass."
"Oh yes, I believe that. It's a lovely idea."
"But you can't believe things because they're a lovely idea."
"But I do. That's how I believe."
--Sebastian and Charles in Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited
Seriously, was I even paying attention when I read that book? I hardly remember what it was about, but I do know that I was so sad when Sebastian and Charles weren’t friends anymore, and of course I loved the teddy bear.
Oh, and I LOVE the above quote, too. That’s exactly how I operate. Got Beauty? Got a good story? Then ya got Truth, buster, and sign me up.
Anyway, what I really want to share in this post is my vision/version of heaven. If you think it’s a beautiful idea, you can believe it, too. There’s no St. Peter to greet me at the Pearly Gates, there’s all my past cat friends—Apple! Loma P! Neetch! Pod! And starring…Miss Puffelina!—doing a line dance to the 2007 remix of the Jackson 5’s Dancing Machine.
I love the original, but when ya get to heaven it’s gotta be the version from Motown Remixed, Vol. 2. It’s all salsa-fied and down into the ground, and I can just see Puffer doing this groovy mambo-hip move to it.
They make a place in the line for me and we all just keep dancing…
She a dynamite attraction
At the drop of a coin she comes alive…
It’s a lovely idea, right?!
P.S. It's the anniversary of Puff's birth today! : )
