“Why do people have to paint their faces and do noisy things with their hair?” asks Lakota as he sits on the windowsill watching me paint my face and flip my hair upside down to give it a little touch up with the blow-dryer. “Why can’t they just lick themselves and have a nap?

I didn’t actually take the photo of him while I was upside down drying the underside of my hair so it wouldn’t grow moldy in this humidity, but I did get the idea because he’d sat there on the windowsill watching everything I did with that righteous cat frown. I got my camera and spent the next half hour trying to get him in the same position with the same expression. Somehow, I think he was just as doubtful of my photographic efforts as my so-called beauty efforts.
No, his eyes have not turned green, they are reflecting the sink.
