I Understand How Inanimate Furballs Feel

As I squeezed and hugged Garfield tightly, I realised what is must be like for this animate furball of mine to be holed up everyday on my bed.

We are inanimate furballs and we stay happy with hugs and squooshes!

With the Circuit Breaker on going in Singapore till 2 June 2020 (if it is lifted and we get back to work) I have been holed up too in my pigeon hole.

Well, I do get moments of sanity when I zoom out to get groceries and essential stuff and this gives me reprieve from the monotony and aggravating behavior of my elderly parents.

In such moments, I am happy to be flooring the gas pedal as there are fewer cars in traffic and more parking lots available at the mall that I go to for my groceries.

It is good that the malls now implement temperature checks for all visitors and that our contact details must be filled in, using the QR code. It gives me the sense of security that people entering my zone is somewhat Covid-19 free.

But I know it is a sense of false security as I am told that there are people out there who are asymptomatic and are carriers, transmitting the virus everywhere.

Still, I keep my mandatory social distancing of minimum 1 metre although I am also told that even at 2 metres in distance, the person who sneezes into my zone, I will also get the virus.

Anyway, I stay masked up when I am out as it is also mandatory to do so. Failure to mask up will cost the culprit SGD300 in fines.

So back to my Garfield – he is 100% of the time incarcerated in my room. Ok, occasionally, I take him out and put him on the sofa in the living room and when he is nice and clean, he goes out with me for a car ride.

Right now, he has Mousey by his side and they both look sanguine side by side, staring at me with their inanimate beady eyes.

Life is tough as an inanimate furball.

They only get squooshes and hugs.

But the best part is, they live on and on…..even after I am gone!


Luckily In Lil Red Dot, Road Works Are Top Grade



A father put his 3 year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying, “
God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma and good-bye Grandpa.”
The father asked, ‘Why did you say good-bye Grandpa?’
The little girl said, “I don’t know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do.”
The next day grandpa died. The father thought it was a strange coincidence.
A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this,
“God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma..”
The next day the grandmother died.
“Holy crap” thought the father, “this kid is in contact with the other side.”
Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say, “God bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy.”
He practically went into shock. He couldn’t sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office.
He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock.
He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay. He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee,
looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived; he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.
When he got home his wife said, “I’ve never seen you work so late. What’s the matter?”
He said, “I don’t want to talk about it, I’ve just spent the worst day of my life.”
She said, “You think you had a bad day, you’ll never believe what happened to me.
This morning my golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson!”
