The Meaning of Life

Tommy, and his friend, Bob, the cat, were talking about the meaning of life one day.  It wasn’t a very serious talk since Tommy was very young and Bob was a cat.  However, Bob could talk which made it easy for Tommy to understand him.  They took turns telling each other what they thought life was all about.

Tommy told Bob about how his day would go most of the time.  Mom would get him up in the morning to eat breakfast and get dressed.  He would play for a while or listen to a story that Mom would read if she had time.  Then it would be time for lunch.  He would have to take a nap in the afternoon.  It was always fun when Dad came home because he would play with Tommy until supper.  They would all sit around the table and visit about their day.  Pretty soon, it was time to go to bed.  Tommy thought that his life was boring sometimes, except for the playing part, of course.

Bob told Tommy that he had done some of the same things when he was a kitten.  Momma would give him breakfast in the morning and almost clean the fur right off of him.  Playing was a lot of fun, but he couldn’t do it for very long without getting sleepy.  Sometimes he played with Momma; sometimes he played with hoomans like Tommy.  It seemed like he slept a lot when he was little.  His Momma was always close by to protect him and his brothers and sisters.  Momma taught him many things so he would be able to take care of himself when he grew up.

By this time, Tommy needed to go home.  As they were saying goodbye, they decided what life was all about.
