The Wabbit discusses time management with the Cat Upstairs

The Wabbit had gone for a confidential talk with Cat who lived Upstairs. "Cat Upstairs," said the Wabbit. "I want to talk to you about time management. I have much to do and little time to do it in." The Wabbit flinched, because he did not like ending a sentence with a preposition, especially when talking to the Cat Upstairs. "I have this rather nice clock, a time piece if you will," responded the cat. The Wabbit was a little confused about how that helped exactly but he pressed on. "So if your day is filled with things on a list, what then?" The Cat Upstairs snorted. My list is simple but extensive - nap, sleep, slumber, snooze, doze ... and sometimes I have to fit in a siesta, so to speak." The Wabbit found this discussion quite intriguing. "And the clock ...?" prompted the Wabbit. "If I had no timepiece," said the Cat Upstairs, "... how would I know when to finish a nap and begin a snooze." The Wabbit decided it was time to go and hopped back downstairs.
