I'm rather wondering why Ellen even bothered coming home. It's not as though she's been around much this week.
Do you think she'd notice if I didn't come home? I almost tried it this evening; I waited outside when she got home, instead of rushing inside for food, to see what she'd do.
But I couldn't last. I was too hungry. So I went in when she called, leaving her only mildly surprised.
Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.
