When you have a cat, Lap Time presents itself as one of those golden opportunities to procrastinate. It's is our duty as cat owners to honor Lap Time. Lap Time is a sacred occasion when your kitty blesses you with purrs and cuddles. I would equate Lap Time with being knighted by the Queen. Lap Time is a holy time. We change out plans for Lap Time.
This happens almost everyday:
Honor the Lap Time.
(And get someone else to get groceries.)
