Today, Starbeans was biting me mercilessly.
But the thing about it was - it was so funny! Even though it hurt, I could barely say no biting in a stern voice - let alone without laughter. I kept on turning my face to the side, so he wouldn't think he was being entertaining and feel encouraged to keep up his act. I could - not - stop - snickering.
It was something about his general aura, or the face he was making - chomping on me with his 4 little teeth, so contentedly. He had been nursing lazily, upset when I would take him away, but not really hungry either.
It must have sounded so bizarre to Squeeze, who was in the kitchen. I was chortling and snorting and trying to say no biting - like I had just heard an irresistibly funny joke - while a little sharp-toothed beast was gnawing on my breast.
Bizarre though it was, it makes me smile just thinking about it.
