Retiring the Kitty Apron



My friend and aide Meredith is moving mid-July after being my personal aide for over six years. Both of us are going through a transition about it. I suppose my end of it is adjusting to new schedules and new faces. Trying to discern what it's like for Meredith isn't always easy.

But there's one thing she's made clear - the kitty apron she wore over here is off limits to anyone else.

So, just as a team retires the jersey of an outstanding, unforgettable player, I'm retiring the kitty apron. I have no stadium wall to hang it on up high, no glass case to place it behind. But the sentiment is the same.

Yes, we'll all adjust. But no one, absolutely no one, gets to wear the kitty apron.

I appreciate you writing about this. It's not easy changing aides especially when they are with you a long time. Best wishes to both you and Meredith.
