A Favorite Thing

with 2 comments

I wouldn’t say that I’m “addicted” to lolcats. It’s not like I would have some sort of withdrawal if I was away from the computer for a few days and couldn’t check them out – as long as I knew I could catch up soon, of course.

Typically, I check them out a few times a day. It’s harmless, though, right?

What’s the worst that can happen? It might cause you to LOL? I’m pretty sure that’s a good thing.

I suppose there’s also a risk of embarrassment if you go public with this kind of obsession.

Let’s say you (hypothetical scenario, of course) hang some of your favorite lolcats on your office wall and your students stop by for some exam review. They might see it – along with the framed picture of your own cat on your desk – and remark that you must “really love cats.”

Maybe a little embarrassing, but you can shrug it off with a laugh, change the subject, and make a mental note to take those off the wall ASAP.

That’s probably not enough to earn the label of “crazy cat lady.” If you want to avoid that label, you should probably not tell your students that you also have a favorite lolcat on your computer’s desktop background and that you keep a special folder on your desktop with 66 of your past favorites (examples below) that you may or may not look through from time to time when you need to LOL. Yeah. I wouldn’t tell them, or anyone, about the folder.
