Curious – #JusJoJan

JusJoJan Badge

I don’t normally post on Tuesdays, but today is special. Last week, I tried adding ‘Curious’ as a upcoming prompt for Linda Hill’s Just Jot January series. Linda pointed out that she already had ‘curiosity’ and could not accept my suggestion.

That set off a small chain-reaction which will become clear on Monday, when I publish the post for the prompt that was eventually accepted.

I was going to ignore the ‘curiosity’ prompt, but I was curious about Alex’s condition and discovered that ‘curiosity’ was Pam’s word. I’m not sure whether to growl at her for taking my word, or take comfort in knowing that great minds think alike.

I’ll go with the great minds thing. She’s too nice to growl at, even though she’s probably snickering for taking the spot in the list.

The gallery includes a couple photos of Faith’s curious boys and a comic that I think Mary posted on Facebook. This post is part of Just Jot it January by Linda G. Hill.


    • The black and white cat does yoga with our daughter. He often mimicks her moves. When I’m staying there, he lays on top of me, steals my food and knocks all my stuff on the floor. But, we’re buds, I really do love him.

  1. We complain bitterly about them and we then we cater to their every need! I miss my cats. Oh and I am not snickering . . . exactly. I like the ‘great minds’.

  2. I’m curious if Uncle Dan left a bag of chips on the coffee table for the two knuckleheads to wrestle with…or if you left the chips at home.

    I distinctly remember the cat meme, but not sure if I posted it. There are so many…but I could see Gibbs sitting on top of me, yowling for my deadness to get up and feed him. He’s a knucklehead too.

  3. Still laughing! That cartoon cracked me up, especially since it’s soooo true. The putty cats are definitely curious. I LOVE the “bookcase”. Perfect. Maybe you need to make a Mt. Maddie for the cat Dan! Lol.

    • The best Mt Kitty was when we were moving her to a new apartment. We leaned the mattress against the wall so we could disassemble the bed. He climbed up onto the top edge of the mattress and went to sleep. I guess the moral of the story is, try to die with food in your pocket.


  4. I like the cat finding you dead cartoon. I am by nature curious, but even if I was a cat I like to think that I’d not sit on a dead human being. It’s a curiously interesting question for me to ponder.

  5. The poster is a riot. The black and white cat is my favorite–looks like he is blocking the door, and doing a mighty fine job of it. I don’t get people who don’t like cats. What’s not to love?!
