Act III, Scene 2

So it’s the Ides and I’m thinking about adding this to my Holiday collection. The context you need is this- Brutus was in fact an honourable man.

Oh, sure. Some Specials.

Well, mostly I’m tired of them junking up my tabs. Frosty? Waaay chiller than that All I do is eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. There must be more to a cat’s life than that. But I hope not. These are suitable for general audiences.
