MONKEY rolls over and yawns, hugging a pillow.
ENTER SEMI-FERAL NINJA PRINCESS QUEEN EXILED FROM BEYOND THE MIRROR DIMENSION, slowly sidling up the bed toward the visible hand. She flops down about 18 inches away from the monkey, back to her for plausible deniability, and headbutts the monkey's hand.
SFNPQEfBtMD: Pet me, Horrible Ape.
SFNPQEfBtMD: I said, pet me.
Monkey: Oh, good morning, Molly.
SFNPQEfBtMD: I didn't say you could look at me.
ENTER THE SMART ONE, with self-possession and confidence. He flops down between the current petter and pettee.
At the bottom of the bed, ACTION DORK CAT snores.
The Smart One: Pet me too.
MONKEY resignedly frees other hand, pets both cats simultaneously.
SFNPQEfBtMD: Oh my god, Gurney, your butt is so dirty.
The Smart One: I DO NOT CONSENT! I DO NOT CONSENT!
A Flurry Of Activity Ensues. SFNPQEfBtMD vacates the premises. The Smart One flops down facing away from the monkey for more pets.
Monkey: Oh, my god, Gurney, she wasn't kidding about your butt.
The Smart One: *Harrumphs and gets up to leave.*
The Smart One: Oh my god, my butt.
SFNPQEfBtMD: *Wanders back over, notices that the monkey's hands are free.*
SFNPQEfBtMD: Pet me.
Monkey: Don't you lick my fingers. I just saw where your tongue has been.
SFNPQEfBtMD: [Primly] Brothers are always dirty.
Action Dork: [Waking up, blearily] Whifrlequiddlers? Oh, hey, petting. All right, then.

Dear Senator Markey,
In light of recent allegations and ongoing concern about foreign meddling in the U.S. Electoral process, and in light of concerns that President-Elect Trump may, in effect, be influenced by a foreign power--and in light of ongoing problems with the incoming administration regarding Hatch and anti-nepotism law violations--I strongly support your efforts to use every legal means to vet such appointees of the incoming administration as are subject to Senate confirmation, and oppose those who are unfit for duty.
We believe in you, Ed. You have our voice. Be loud with it.
