In my last meditation class, I embarrassed myself by asking a dumb question. I had it all planned before I spoke, and thought it would come out funny, but it didn't. It was only our second class, so no one really knows each other very well, and so when I said, "I have a question about cats" no one laughed. It reminded me of my elementary school friend's adult sister, who once asked at a dairy how they made chocolate milk. But she also had brain damage, so that made it okay. I blushed. The answer is simple. Either ignore the cats or put them away.
