Flashback drawing: These cats have incredible balance.

I'm a loner, Dottie.  A rebel. Quick - where's that from?

I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel. Quick - where's that from?

Here’s another one “from the vaults”.  (P.S. I never can remember if I should put the period inside the quotation marks or outside.  I know it goes inside if it is an actual quotation and not for inappropriately used quotation marks for irony, but is there a rule I should be following?)

No idea why I decided to draw this other than I thought it would be funny.  Duncan and Smudge probably just want to escape sometimes and this is how I imagine they might want to do it.  Like rebels without a cause.

I would hope that they are currently content and enjoy their sedentary lifestyles chez nous, but they might be hitting a mid-life crisis sometime soon.  It’s entirely possible we find a note some morning written with some leftover catnip declaring their intent to get hair plugs, find some young kitten girlfriends, and move somewhere where they can wear floral island-inspired button-down short-sleeved shirts and ride a motor….cy…..cle (Quick, where’s THIS from?).

There’s really not much more to say, or that could just be the bleach from the bathroom melting my brain.  But at least it’s clean now.

Vroom vroom!

  1. First one is Pee wee’s big Adventure! I have no idea about the last one. However, I also share the punctuation placement conundrum. I sort of remember ignoring my husband once while he was correcting my placement. I think he said, “blah, blah, blah, inside the quotes, blah, blah, blah.” but I can’t be sure.

    • Ding ding ding! You got it! Hhahah, who listens to a grammar lesson anyway? Well, I think I’ll go with your incomplete memory because it does just look weird with that period just hanging out there all alone.

  2. It goes inside the quotes if you’re done with the sentence. For example:
    Adam said, “I’ve got my dancing shoes on.” If there is a citation to be had, however, the period goes after the citation. For example: As Jess wrote in her award-winning novel, “Crazy cats ladies are hard to find” (Doolittle, 2011, p. 216). That’s APA, in case you wanted to know. I’m supposed to be writing 3 papers right now…
