HELLO! My name is CHICKIE! Poppy has a new name for me: Shade-killer!
I was sitting on my sitty thing, minding my own business, when the window shade started insulting me.
So I killed it.
Poppy is usually proud of me, but he got mad at me! I didn’t know the shade was his pet! He shoulda told me he liked it!
He stopped talking to me, so I went to Mommy’s couch. I fluffed her pillow for her.
She sat down, and I snuggled up to her.
Tipper got in her lap, but he jumped down when he saw me.
Tipper: Momma is my hooman! You dumped her, as soon as Poppa started talking to you again!
I know, but I needed a snuggle. We could have shared.
Tipper: You needed her more than I did right then. Besides, I didn’t want Trouble Cooties to get on me.
I DON’T HAVE TROUBLE COOTIES!!!!
Poppy is still mad about the shade, but he likes me again.
Oh–Mommy wants me to tell you that there’s a new Hot Flash (reallyreallyreally short story) on the Hot Flashes page of this blog. She puts a new one up every month.
