Tipper Loses It #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? Momma has been cleaning up our toys and putting them all in a box so we can rummage through them and pull them out again! The fun thing about that is that we find toys we forgot about!

I found a super-terrific toy, and I played with it and played with it.

Then I lost it, and I couldn’t find it anywhere. Momma found it for me, though.

P.S. My sister, Chickie, doesn’t have two different-colored eyes. That’s just a trick she does with the light. She thinks it’s really cool. Actually, it is pretty cool.

    Same thing with little kids: a toy’s value in the eyes of one kid depends on the amount of attention the other kid gives it. The minute kid number 1 is bored, so is kid number 2.

    Ah, the sad ways of the world. Everything we’ve used to survive as a race is still in each little new brain, and has to be worked out for modern times (if that’s where the kid lives). All over again.

      So true, Alicia. Each of us has to conquer — or at least learn to work beyond — our own personal lizard brain. Or, you know, not.

      For a certain value of “lost”. This isn’t the first toy Chickie has robbed him of. His Kitty Kong comes to mind, which she took AND HID inside a box.

    You look very handsome in those photos, Tipper. And yes, sometimes old toys can be like brand new. I do wonder though, how did that toy end up near Chickie’s foot???

      Tipper says thank you. And nobody has the slightest idea how that toy ended up near Chickie’s foot. It’s an unsolved mystery.

        I guess we’ll just have to accept it, like the case of the disappearing socks, or ‘why-socks-never-match’. -sigh-

          I wish I could remember the name of the comedian and/or writer who claimed that disappearing socks didn’t disappear — they turn into wire clothes hangers.
