The price of a short attention span

I was putzing around my house this evening, getting some stuff done before having to go to skating practice at 11pm (from which I have just returned). I emptied the dishwasher, took out the garbage including the cat litter, stuff like that. Unfortunately, I got distracted while changing the cat litter. I did the rest of the garbage, took the bags out to the curb, then started messing around on my computer. My mind easily wanders.

Then I heard the unmistakable sounds of a kitty-paw scraping something, the usual pawing a cat will do before and/or after using the litter box. Oh no! I realized I'd forgotten to finish with the kitty litter -- I hadn't actually put in a new bag with new litter in it, just removed the old one.

"No, stop it, wait, don't!" I yelled loudly as I rushed into the other room. I was hoping that if the cat hadn't started yet, my shouting would cause it to be startled into shy-bladder-syndrome and not make a mess. Too late. My littlest cat arched her back and stared at me with big surprised eyes, having just completed her business. I now had an empty litter box to clean out before I could refill it with a bag and some litter. *sigh*

"Oh crap," I muttered. "Well...actually....pee."
