It’s the only thing that makes sense when you take into account Issac Newton’s works along with Charles Darwin.”

His pair of cats lazily opened and closed their eyes as they slept on the counter next to where he was making dinner.

“You don’t get it do you? How am I supposed to have intellectual conversations and start preparing for the worldwide conventions of the great minds if you two can’t even understand the most fundamental and basic of my theories on parallel worlds and speed-of-light travel.” He said sadly and lowered the heat on the stew.

    You’ve found your voice with this one. I got into it, and that’s saying something, since you only have a few paragraphs to work with. It all comes together— the surroundings, cooking, talking to cats. It’s funny and smart and just really well written. *nods with respectful approval :)
