Last week I wrote about funny sayings that families have.
Have you ever heard this one?
“Sorry” won’t feed the admiral’s pussycat.
Yeah, well, Google hasn’t heard of it either.
I remember hearing it in our home when I was a kid, though.
I have a feeling this family adage was once the punchline of a joke.
I have a feeling that it had something to do with an admiral’s cat that didn’t get fed and thus, met it’s demise.
I have a feeling that it means you can’t make everything right by just saying “sorry”.
But obviously, I don’t know for sure.
It hit me today,
that with both my parents now gone,
I have no way to find out.
Why didn’t I ever ask about the admiral’s pussycat?
