Moment of self-insight, lol
I like to think I have a pretty good view of who I am, and of how I will react in certain situations. Today I had a rare moment of self-insight, showing I might not be the great heroic figure my imagination paints out.
Let's back up to the beginning: my daytime job has cats. It's awesome - they're everywhere.
Cats are agile, many are very curious, and some are extremely energetic. No matter how safe an environment you try to create, some will find a way to get themselves into trouble. We even had one who tried to open doors through balancing on the door handles. Today, fate combined an adventure-cat with a place she shouldn't be and a moment when no one was watching.
Result: cat stuck in a high place unable to get down.
My roommate's first instinct when we heard was to save the cat. He went to get a ladder.
My first instinct was to grab the camera. I had it in my hand before he'd even taken two steps away from the chair.
I like to think I would have helped the cat. Truth is, it would probably have been after snapping photos, and while grumbling about how scary it is to climb ladders - my balance is pitiful. Odds are I would have fallen with the cat. Or, she would have tired of waiting for me to find the ladder, attempted to jump down, and broken something.
Good thing my roommate was there.
