They Asked Gingerly

, , , | Working | June 13, 2017

(I have recently taken in a stray cat from the woods to take care of as my own. Since he needs to be vaccinated, my mother calls the vet’s office to schedule an appointment. Near the end of the call, while they are getting his information down:)

Receptionist: “Okay, so you’re scheduling an appointment for Ginger, correct?”

Mom: “That’s right!”

Receptionist: “What color is he?”

(There is a brief moment of silence before my mother continues.)

Mom: “Um, rust-orange. He’s an orange tabby.”
