The Devil’s in the Details

With airfare, visas, train tickets and hotels taken care of, it’s getting down to the small but crucial details. For example, today was all about lining up the all-important cat sitter. Did Marco Polo have to get someone to clean the litter box before he set out for China? Did Lewis and Clark remember to stop the newspaper while they were away? Did Neil Armstrong have to make sure someone came to water his plants before his trip to the moon? These details have not made it into the annals of recorded history.

But you know there would have been a journal entry if any of them had come home to a cat that hadn’t been fed in a week.
