A Picture of a Moment in My Life in Words

We’d recently had the shower/bath tile wall re-grouted. The workers arrive and knock, I open the door, I am probably half their height as I say hi and welcome them in. They step inside to see a giant, fluffy gray cat running away into a back bedroom at top speed, gaining more speed gradually, tripping over hind feet cartoon fashion, and appearing even larger in size because he’s puffing himself up with fear. My cat settles into a room, I stand at the counter and collect a few fully eaten strawberries with their green leaves off a little blue plate to throw away; they tell me their brief plans.
