    Very last line:

    “Noy yet,” he decided. “But soon.”

    See it? Normally I’d completely miss something like that, somehow that one stuck right out to me.

    So, a life of regret, dissatisfaction, and loneliness keeps you looking fifteen years younger huh? That’s something to keep in mind for my later years…

    If only George was real [sigh]. I would complete toss my number into the fray. But I wouldn’t slip it in with pies. Too subtle for my taste. Maybe tie it to a cow udder…What? Too much?

    James: Apparently the road not taken is like “Oil of Olay” for this cat.

    LG: Thanks! I can’t paint, sing, take photos, dance or play instruments. I gotta do somethin’. ;)

    erika: The cow might not appreciate it. I think you missed the point of the story… You should be selling insurance to lonely farmers.

    Steph: Thanks! That is very sweet. The basic idea popped into my head yesterday morning. So, I logged into blogger to write a couple sentences to save as a draft to expand this morning. Then I just kept typing.
