(True story.  A fond memory of telling the story to Mom and Sistah in a crowded coffee shop, wherein we laughed so hard, loudly, and long that we attracted attention, but couldn’t stop!  People laughed along in the contagion of hilarity even though they couldn’t hear the story.  I think.)

    HOOTS. Reminds me of that classic scene in When Harry Met Sally. “I’ll have what she’s having.” Remember that, like anybody could forget it? Didja know, the woman who said that was actually Rob Reiner’s “real” mother? That when the scene was test-marketed, the women in the audience were laughing and the men were silent? Food for thought.

      That’s what we do too! I snore in the early morning hours, about an hour before husband’s alarm goes off at 4. He snores as I’m trying to get to sleep. The cat sleeps between us at our heads and snorks all night long!

      Sometimes I hear “call and response” from the two of them and I can only laugh!

    Fantastic. I could probably arrange the hallelujah chorus if I kicked my cats in the right order, so many of them have taken to sleeping with /on us these days. Stripey snores.

    Spot doesn’t snore, and Lokki talks in his sleep rather than zzzz. He’s a meezer, he can’t help it. I’m the big noisy one at night, and occasionally the dog. Despite the sheer size of hubby’s nose and the breakings it has endured, he rarely snores.

        Whoops. I do speak and write in three versions of English :) It’s the UK term for a siaMeeze.

          I believe that Meezer is also used in certain segments of American society.

          Mine doesn’t snore loudly, but he snuffles and coos in his sleep. He has the typical demanding Siamese yowl though. He likes sleeping at my feet and sometimes I kick him by accident. :(

            Yep, they love rhyming slang. I’ve adopted the word. A common house cat is a moggy-but I don’t know why.
            No, another 15 in the oven, then the sitting and carving (my job, dammit all straight to hell). If you don’t already, have a few green olives with the turkey. Olives, cranberry, red wine and turkey together make my mouth happy – and I don’t even like wine…
