Behold the Wonder of Cat Commercials
Do you want to crawl back into bed? Wondering if we’ve traveled back in time? Feel your blood boiling? Determined to restore basic human rights?
Yeah. Me, too. That’s why I asked what you’d prefer I write about in a few places. Most of you said you wanted actions to take along with resources, and I’ll be collating all of that in an upcoming issue of my newsletter. This newsletter issue is not that. This is the: “You know what? Yes, I would like to dump an ocean’s worth of salt on Washington DC right now, but perhaps I should take a break for a hot minute.”
While I can’t guarantee I can deliver a stress-free moment for one entire minute, the good news is that I may have found a three-second solution. (And by three-seconds, I mean it’s the equivalent of a 70s-vibing owl posturing how many licks it took to get to the center of a Tootise Roll pop.)
Without further ado, prepare for cooler temperatures as I give you the majesty… The wonder… The beauty… Of CAT COMMERCIALS ON YOUTUBE!
