Okay, I had a wild dream last night. I was living in an old English tudor mansion, and Miss Kitty and her friends ran down the hallway and into the parlor. Wait. I have no parlor. I forgot, this is a dream.

"Let's flip this floor over," Miss Kitty said. "One side is Parcheesi and the other is a chess board. And we LOVE chess," she said.

When the spotlight came on, the lion yelled, "Okay, it's the Crowns versus the Hats."

"Hey, no one says 'versus' anymore," Miss Kitty said. "But this is a dream," smiled the demure cat wearing the Queen's crown.

"Okay, Hats," Miss Kitty said. "Let's move."

"Not so fast," said the Lion King. "Any bets on the winners? And how do you want to pay? Check? Money order? IOU? Cash?"

Miss Kitty rolled over laughing. She then yelled out "Check, mate!!!"

I'm so glad I woke up.

Another Miss Kitty adventure in the digital darkroom.
