Instead, she picked up the kitten, gently wrapped her in paper (with air holes, of course) and gave her to the desperado. “Meowwie Christmas,” she said. An unexpected move and a successful one. They ended their feud and became best friends.

  • In the last 5 years, the desperado had grown to love the cat. La Palomillo had left town 5 months prior, but this was an event that she simply could not miss.

  • The desperado made the cat wave a fuzzy paw at the unaging Spanish princess. "Hola, la Palomilla," he chimed. "Have you decided on a name for your cat?" la Palomilla asked. The desperado watched the cat lick its behind. "I was never given a name & so shall it be with my cat."

  • The cat grimaced and looked up at his captor. “My NAME is Howard, sir.” The princess smiled and nodded. “So good to see you again after all these years, Howard.”

  • "Would you like a cup of tea?" the princess continued. Puzzled, Howard stared at her, perplexed. "Could I get a bowl of milk instead? Also, be a dear and stir some Nesquik in there too," he replied, unsure of whether or not there were any ulterior motives behind her inquiry.

  • “Anything else?” Howard put on his best accent. “And while you’re at it, make sure you get me a bot- a bottle- a bo’oh’o’wa’er.” According to historical lore, the British made their “t”s silent after that one fateful incident where a few Americans dumped British tea in the ocean.

  • “A what of what, now?” the waiter said patiently. The jig was up. I wasn’t gonna pass for a local, no matter how hard I try. In response, I put on my best Texas drawl, and said “I reckon I’ve have uh bottle of water, son.” I think he understood me this time.
