He was so brave. That’s what I remember most. We were walking home from the Rotary potluck, just Herbert and I, and the moon was full and the stars were twinkling and the night seemed to be made just for us.
And then out of nowhere, there was the cat. Its jaws were enormous and its gigantic paw almost blotted out the moon. I couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, and Herbert, not even a thought for himself, stands between us and tells me to get to safety. As I ran, he called out to me, “Tell the children… I love them.”
Anyway, that’s how we lost your father. I did not eat him after our third date, and I have no idea how that ugly rumor got started. Now finish your dinner.
Still another of Japan’s most retweeted cat pictures.
