The Cat's Fired

I've started a tradition of making some type of beef for Chris on Fridays. Its something to get him through the week at work, and something to make sure I don't lose my meat-cooking skills should I ever need them. We've dubbed it "Steak Fridays".

Today I bought a decent tri-tip from Trader Joe's and covered it with minced garlic, fresh rosemary, sea salt, cracked pepper, and olive oil. I opened the propane valve, depressed the safety button, and had my finger poised on the lighter button when a bit of movement caught my eye on the far side of the BBQ:

Say hello to my little friend

Well, there goes that plan.

Chris was playing video games with his friends. They were all in favor of lighting it up with the mouse inside, as long as I named him Mickey first. I opted to take pictures instead. And they all got a kick out of Chris giving them the play-by-play as I jostled the BBQ around trying to get a better picture of Mickey.

He's probably still out there...

Thank God you found him in time! The worst part is that he seems to have that look on his face that says, "Maybe if I ignore her she'll just go away..."
