Saturday: Hili dialogue

March 21, 2015 • 4:39 am

The weekend is here, and I must spend my morning taking the CeilingCatMobile to a body shop downtown to repair its face and shoulder. But the good news is that on my trek home I pass several good places to eat, including Xoco, Rick Bayless’s “Mexican street food” emporium, which makes a splendid Mexican hot chocolate (they grind the beans there) and fresh churros.

Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is out for a walk, and you can see that spring has arrived, though the cherry trees have not yet leafed out. Although her dialogue is a bit enigmatic, I suspect she means that—because she of course is always going in the right direction—the cat is pleased that the weather is also changing for the better.

Hili: We are going in the right direction.
A: Who is “we”?
Hili: I and the world.

In Polish:
Hili: zmierzamy we właściwym kierunku.
Ja: Kto?
Hili: Ja i świat.

  1. Hili is cute as usual. I like how confident she looks with her tail held high!

    I’m also glad that the CeilingCatMobile is appropriately anthropo(felido)morphized.

  2. At first I thought there was something wrong with the grammar. ‘I and the world’. But being first is certainly not out of character.

  3. The world doesn’t have an awful lot of choice in the direction it goes…’round and ’round and ’round…so it’s a good thing it’s going right round, baby.


  4. The orchard, with cherry trees standing like scoliotic skeletons pruned to grow straight (or, at least, in the right direction, as Hili would put it), fascinates me!

  5. Glad you mentioned the cherry trees. I was so fixated on the gorgeous Hili that I hadn’t looked around. Now I need to study those scoliotic cherry trees and see what I can learn from them as mine definitely needs thinning out.
