    Resolve to steal this idea for own blog.

    Realize that anything I type won’t be anywhere near as good as this one, and will probably be insulting to the original.

    Decide to take the ‘hell with it’ approach and type it anyway.

    There was no room at the inn last night.

    Stray cat ate lots of kibble, drank water and snuggled and kneaded until bed time.

    Stray cat is currently trying to kick laptop off lap while I wait for animal control.

    Hoping his family reported him missing… sort of.
