Earlier today, my son was daydreaming about that faraway day when he will own a kitten (or, preferably, two) and will be able to generate kitten videos to share on his YouTube channel. “Then I will share them with you and you will get more views on your channel!” My YouTube channel consists of exactly two videos of nerf battles at our house. Add some kittens, we’re talking viral with a capital V and whiskers.
Sadly, he was not pleased with my response. “I will have nothing to do with the proliferation of cute kittens on the internet.”
“WHAT? WHY? They’re so cute! What are you, allergic to cute? Because if you are, you should have had hives all over a long time ago, because I was flipping cute when I was a baby!”
The conversation ended then, because I had to go and yell at the giant neighborhood cat who was making his daily rounds and relieving himself in my vegetable garden.
