Open Letter to Owner of Pet For Whom I am Pet-Sitting

1) Your mail has been retrieved, and you receive far too many unnecessary catalogues.

2) Instructions to give pet water are confounding...fill up bamboo table centerpiece? Doest Mako take her water from the centerpiece?

3) Your piano needs tuning. And perhaps several more volumes of sheet music for Christmas songs.

4) Box containing something called Weight Watchers Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Bars may have one fewer than your last count.

5) Bag marked "sweet & spiced nuts" from Healdsburg, CA, may or may not be empty and/or completely missing upon your return.

6) Sweet & spiced nuts may or may not have been delicious.
