So, eloren and I were discussing children’s books over lunch.

eloren: We’ve got Goodnight Moon, and Pat The Bunny, and The Runaway Bunny
autographedcat: You need to get Harold And The Purple Crayon.
eloren: I don’t know that one.
autographedcat: Oh, it’s marvelous. I also like The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes.
eloren: Pretty soon, I guess I’ll have to get Everybody Poops.
autographedcat‘s brain: whirrrrrr-click You know, that scans to “Everybody Hurts” by REM.
autographedcat: (outloud) No! No, I will not! No. (pause) No!
eloren: (curiously) Are you ok?
