leave a mark

At what point does the phrase "you're a good little eater" go from being a compliment to an insult? I think it's the first time someone says it to you on a date.

Nearly a year ago, I saw something in our apartment parking lot. At first glance, I thought it was another one of the MANY cats that camp near the dumpster. At second glance, however, I realized it was chubbier and waddlier and rodentier. My best guess was a muskrat. But then I didn't see it again, and no one believed me. It was my own personal possibly imagined monster living in the Loch ness of Provo's gutters. I saw it once, and I never lost hope.
Then yesterday, as I pulled into the drive way, there was Nessy. Staring right at me. It looked a lot like this:

It scurried away, back into the gutter, and I was left once again without proof. Who knows how to catch a muskrat?
