WAFFLES: Boss! It's like a gazillion minutes after 8:00. Where's breakfast?
KATIE: Waffles, what on earth are you doing up there?
WAFFLES: Looking for breakfast.
KATIE: On top of the kitchen cabinets?
WAFFLES: It says EAT up here. I'm just following directions.
KATIE: Waffles, I'm not sure what's more surprising. That you can read or that you're 11 feet up in the air.
WAFFLES: Eleven what?
KATIE: Feet. Up.
WAFFLES: In the AIR?

About Today's Photos
Waffles has a new thing. And it's got everyone just a little bit unnerved.
After four years, he's discovered the tops of the kitchen cabinets. With the way they're built in and configured, access is anything but easy. Our extra tall ceilings mean Glogirly doesn't even get up there to clean. She installed those EAT letters 14 years ago and hasn't been up since.
Somehow Waffles figured out a pathway up last week and despite his trepidation when it came to the descent, he's repeated the adventure again and again.
We don't have the kind of kitty superhighways some of our friends have in their kitchens. Waffles has plenty of other climbing structures scattered throughout the house, but at least for now nothing compares to the allure of the kitchen and the mile high cabinets.
