Happy Fourth of July

HM* and I are on a swing east for a week-plus, where HM is strengthening my mom's plants by introducing them to the idea of natural predators and I may or may not be getting a little work done. In any case, there probably won't be much philosophy posted for a little while, and posting may be light even after I get back in the run-up to and aftermath of my move to Milwaukee. Enjoy your potato salad!

*Her Majesty or Hostile Mascot, depending on her mood.

You make it sound as though Allie being queen depends on her mood. Because you treat her all the time like the queen that she is, you can't mean to be saying *this*.

I don't know if queens (empresses, really) routinely spend their time crouching under articles of furniture. HM would also point out that empresses don't usually get unceremoniously stuffed into small cages for travel purposes--it's very ceremonious.
