Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? Momma’s breathy machine broke!
Chickie: I didn’t do it!
Chickie didn’t do it. It just wore out. It’s about ten years old, and Momma uses it every night.
I heard that some people say cats steal your breff, but that’s not true. Momma has sleep apnea, and she says her froat closes up when she’s alseep and that’s what steals her breff. She says her froat doesn’t close up when she’s awake, because she’s always talking.
That’s a joke, though. She’s usually tippity-tapping on the keyboard like I’m doing now.
While I was waiting for my turn, I looked around the office and found two things.
A fun thing:
Chickie: I robbed it offa the wall and Mommy let me keep it to play with. I don’t want to play with it, now.
And a boring thing:
Sometimes Momma uses it to pretend she’s walking, but it usually just stands there.
Momma has to sleep sitting up on the couch while she waits for a new machine. Chickie sleeps in the same room.
And so do I.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you rob stuff to play with? Is it still fun, if you’re allowed?
