And if you're not careful, you just might learn something

Last night, I went to bed, and before dropping off to sleep, I was editing a piece I did at work. Now, I only had a paper copy of it -- I don't like to save copies of personal stuff on my work computer. My plan was to read and edit the piece, then rewrite it at home with the changes before firing it off to the publisher.

However, sometime during the wee hours of the morning, one of my cats vomitted prodigiously all over the first paragraph. Aside from the implied criticism, this was unfortunate, because it made the ink run and rendered said paragraph unreadable.

I am sure I am meant to draw a lesson from this. However, I am not sure which of the following is the correct lesson.

1. Don't read in bed.

2. Don't leave the only copy of something on the floor where your cat can puke on it.

3. Don't have cats.

4. Use the laser printer at your office instead of the inkjet printer.

5. Don't write lead-in paragraphs so bad that they make animals throw up.
