Lately, I've been feeling very busy. That reminded me of a Japanese kotowaza (proverb).猫の手も借りたい neko no te mo karitaiYou know how cats don't listen to their owner's commands or do what humans tell them. They have mischievous little paws that knock things off of counters and bookshelves. Out of control hands on out of control cats. (Yes, I love my inu.) You'd have to be very busy to want to borrow one of those to get your work done, but that's what this kotowaza implies. neko is cat...te is hand...kariru is to borrow...karitai is want to borrow
