“I stare past her at the inspirational kitten posters. There’s one of a soaking-wet kitten climbing out of a toilet with the caption ‘It could be worse!’

‘Just tell me whatever it is you’re thinking,’ Mrs. Paulsen says. ‘Whatever is going through your mind right now.’

‘I hope they didn’t actually drop a cat in the toilet to get that picture,’ I choke out.

‘…Pardon?’

‘Nothing. Sorry.”
