Letting the Cat Die.

Letting the Cat Die,


Once upon a time, when turns on the swing were precious and contentious you could have your airy moment of kicking and flying before demanding mates declared your time up.

Even so, the end a turn hardly dried-up like dew at noon.  No, there was one way to prolong a turn that even worked when Mom was calling you home.

To be fair, you would have to stop pumping skyward and use the gathered momentum to “let the cat die.”   So, it was acceptable to hang on to the swing until the arcing seat settled plumb.

    ??? Well, OK. Will give it a try. I’m sure this works when there’s no “deadline” in sight, and what – after all – is a “dead line?”

    We’ll see.
