OOPS – I guess I kinda stole that subject line from a rather famous band didn’t I? Maybe they’ll forgive me…….after all, it purrrrrfectly says what I was saying almost all day yesterday………..WHY YOU MIGHT ASK??? Well I’ll tell you why!
First of all, I figured something mysterious was up when Mom and Dad went outside first thing yesterday morning and took EVERYTHING off my back deck and EVERYTHING off my front porch. That was rather alarming to say the least. I’m used to seeing certain things out my windows – all the furniture, plant pots, deck plant boxes, the front porch rockers and all that STUFF – GONE – they stacked stuff up in the yard AWAY from the house which was even MORE mysterious.
Wait…wait….you’re taking all the stuff off my deck!!!
What about my pretty view of the front porch? Where did it go????!!!!
Why? Well I asked them when they came back inside………..seems the powerwashing crew was coming yesterday. EEEEEK (I thought to myself) – I remember two years ago when they were here……..talk about NOISY…….well, while I personally like the green sheen of mossy stuff that grows on the shady parts of the house thanks to dampness – THEY don’t.
But Mom, the green mossy stuff goes with the green grass – compliments the white house…..why change a GOOD thing???
After I recovered from that horrible experience, I settled back in my tent for some much needed sleep explaining to Mom that if she expected me to be my usual charming self on practically no nap time, she had another think coming! Here’s me reading her the riot act.
Yes Mom, I’m talking to you….who else can I whine to about stuff??????
Was I real wienie for complaining about getting a nice clean house if a bit of noise accompanies the operation? YES…… Was I a real wienie for telling Mom I need lots of beauty sleep if I’m expected to be companionable and adorable for the rest of the day? YES…. Do I care if I was a wienie or not? HECK NO.
That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. I have heard that later today, I will be disturbed yet again by a lady coming to measure some of my windows for new drapes. I suppose I’ll have to take sanctuary in the basement yet again when SHE gets here. I guess I’ll just have to accept that today will be another GRUMPY day. Hope my Mom understands that!
In case you didn’t know this, today is International Boxing Day! A day cats (and other animals) celebrate with great gusto – especially we felines – who can resist a great box? You might see a lot of posts today featuring animals in their favorite boxes – like this!!!
MAY THE QUIET BE WITH YOU
