Playing the Q-I word in Words With Friends. It’s a great way to dump the Q, because I never have a U when I need one.

My cat Bo’s Clevercat Top Entry litter box. It hasn’t exactly kept the dogs from treating his litter box like a Whitman’s Sampler, but it has helped. The high sides and lid contain more of the litter that Bo used to kick out onto the laundry room floor, at least.

The smell of honeysuckle in bloom, always a harbinger of Last Born’s birthday.

The tenacity of a young girl peddling scented candles door-to-door in my neighborhood, trying to raise money for a local youth camp. I always buy from kids no matter what the product, but I have a few aversions. One of them is to candles scented with food smells. I told the girl after listening to her sales pitch that I’d be happy to buy a candle, so long as she had one that didn’t smell like food. How was I supposed to know that was the only kind she had in her bag? I sniffed and rejected five before I ended up with “pearberry,” which isn’t … terrible. That young girl, however, will be CEO of a Fortune 500 company someday.
