Story #1- The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
Date- January 16
Rating- Mmm...That's Good
Quote- "Della finished her cry and attended to her cheeks with the powder rag. She stood by the window and looked out dully at a grey cat walking a grey fence in a grey backyard. To-morrow would be Christmas Day, and she had only $1.87 with which to buy Jim a present."

Story #2- Eva is Inside Her Cat by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Date- January 16
Rating- Mmm...That's Good
Quote- "During those nights, with her big round eyes open and frightened, she bore the weight of the darkness that fell upon her temples like molten lead. Everything was asleep around her. And from her corner, in order to bring on sleep, she tried to go back over her childhood memories."
