I went to the vet today to pick up Jack. Jack in a box…forever. I’d been putting it off for quite a while (see date on prior post), and not just because I still have to pay the 170 bucks that I don’t have (and totally forgot about! ouch) and I decided I was ready to deal with this next step. And you know what…I feel better. It was actually kinda nice. I mean, he’s in a white cardboard box, taped shut, and I know he’s in a plastic bag inside that box, since Jasper went the same route a year ago, but…he’s back. He’s back, kinda hanging around the house now (well, on my counter). I have my Jack Pot all ready to go, and I just need to find a Jack Plant that likes ashy soil (any suggestions?). He’ll have to stay Jack in the Box until I can find the Jack Plant (this is actually getting kinda fun!) to put in the Jack Pot, but he doesn’t mind.
He’s almost as well behaved as he was before he died! Just not quite as affectionate. But still..welcome back Jack!
(Please do not call the local mental services to pick me up. I’ll be alright. No really.)
