Cats Eyes

Published: Nov 02, 2020

Monica had the yellowest eyes I had ever seen. At times, I thought for a moment, she was a cat. Admittedly it was dark and we had two cats at the time. But neither cat had yellow eyes, theirs were green. My wife would not tell me they were colored contacts no matter how much I insisted it must be true.

My wife's best friend was Monica. Sometimes she stayed until the sun came up the next morning. I'd find her sitting on the couch focused on nothing first thing in the morning. At some point while I was eating she would rise and leave without a word.
