"Yes, little Brother Earl Gray?"
"Why do you you call me 'little'?"
"You were born after me-like three itty bitty cats later-so you're little."
"But, oh-never mind. Noir, uh can I write on your blog again?"
I squint at my Brother Earl Gray. "I don't think so."
"W-why not, Noir?"
Is that a cat tear I see? "Because, it's MY blog!"
"But, Noir, Mama told you to share! She bopped you in the head..."
He had me there, but-"Look, it's MY blog. I started it and what I say goes!"
"Then OK-I'll start my own! You'll see. I'm gonna tell Mama!"
I can't have that. Mommy bops heads HARD.
Gotta make the baby of the family happy. "Ya know what, Earl Gray?"
"What?" Brother Earl Gray looks at me with his big eyes. "What?"
"Well, Brother, you'll be Mancat for Monday today! How's that?"
My Brother Earl Gray smiles. "Really, Noir? Me--Mancat for Monday!"
"Yep, you're THE mancat. Make sure you tell Mommy I shared and-"
Brother Earl Gray's smile gets bigger. "Oh, she already knows!"
"I threw in the tear and Mama said to tell you about the head bop."
"Share your blog more or we start our own! Tommy ain't gonna buy a PC just for YOU! So you'll hafta share!"
The baby of the family was smarter than I thought!
After his smirks of the smirks-Brother Earl Gray does his best cat nap impression.
Brother Earl Gray-yes I still love him!
