This weekend the Mister and I found a most unusual item in front of this yours trulys favorite 99 Cent Store.
This little lass. Concerned, I brought her inside the store and asked if she happened to be under their employ. The look on the cashier’s face said it all: a most definite yes. After explaining I found her outside, I inquired as to what this, Greenpoint’s newest shop cat, name was. Her answer was as follows:
You realize this cat is a female?
I replied. To wit the cashier told me she was quite aware of this and explained she had initially given this cat a Chinese name— but a customer pointed out that folks hereabouts would have trouble pronouncing it. This person, in turn, said this cat’s name should be Philip— and it stuck.
You need to get more with the times.
A customer, an older gentleman, chimed in.
“You’re right”, I replied, “it is the 21st century after all”.
Oh yeah, my name is Mary.
He added. So there have you.
