"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

How many times has this happened to you?: You bump off to the local super for a roll of chapstick, only to become waylaid on the return journey, astray in a land governed only by metaphor. Unfortunately, it seems that "THE COMEBACK TRAIL" is a path barely a hundred feet in circumference, looping back over to the sign announcing its existence. Heaven knows how many times Ziggy has walked this trail, or how many times he will continue to walk it. I won't cast any aspersions on Ziggy's childhood, but it's possible that the word "beaten" holds some unpleasant connotations to his mind.
