Desperately seeking revel moment


You know when you bring home some fresh, really potent, organic catnip and your cats can smell it before you’re halfway through the door? And the look on their faces and bodies is sheer desire? And their bodies exude contentment when they roll around and revel in it?

That’s what I’d like to feel like. Just once.

revel (n.)
c.1300, “riotous merry-making,” from O.Fr. revel, from reveler “be disorderly, make merry,” from L. rebellare “to rebel” (see rebel). The verb meaning “to feast in a noisy manner” is first recorded early 14c. The meaning “take great pleasure in” first recorded 1754.

{Note to self: grow lots of catnip in the garden this summer.}
