Crossing Over

Today was very trying for my family. When mom tried to wash her hands after lunch, nothing came out of the faucet. Harrumph, I said. What the heck, mom said (g-rated version, for the kids).

We decided to go out and potty and see what was going on out there. What we found was a big hole surrounded by men. Water was spewing out of the hole, and a raging river was running through the parking lot, right in my path!

I looked upstream for a way around, but all I saw was the scary gurgling source of the river, and four men admiring the handsome boxer.

I looked downstream, but the river ran as far as I could see.

Mom insisted that I cross, and I gave her the look. Hey, my paws are dry and they are staying that way. I was angry, and she knew it.

But mom can be very persistent, and she would not budge except in the direction that would make me cross the torrent. Gamely, I crossed, braving the rapids and resisting the tug of the current.

Success. Hours later, I got my revenge on mom, when the water came back on and she was forced to take an ice-cold shower. Vengeance is sweet.

I can't believe your mom was so mean! My mom is always nice and walks down far enough so I can jump over the rapids without getting wet.

Peanut said...

Geez how could she make you do that? That isn't right. She should have picked you up and carried you across.

I would have totally been MAD I hate to get wet. Even just my feeties.

I have to agree with Peanut. Your mom should have carried you across that raging river. We can see that more Voodoo is in order.
