It's Good to Plan For the Future
Virginia Override got sick one day. Her friends brought her food and medicine, did her errands, and fed her cats. Virginia rather liked this arrangement. She decided she would fake illness for a while. Her friends caught on to her trick and didn't help her very much anymore. Virginia didn't care. She discovered that the sicker she got, the more her cats loved her. They spent all their time with her and this made Virginia very happy. She told them when she died, she would come back as a ghost just to be with them. The cats purred and purred.
