Good morning! Today’s wake up strategy is yet another one that falls in the category of “Not My Fault, People!”There was a pen on the floor. Why it was there, I can’t even venture to guess, but it was there. On the hardwood floor. Right outside the tile floored bathroom.
I wasn’t even meaning to wake anyone up…yet. But there we were….the pen….and me.
I gave it a little bat and it twirled delightfully around on the floor. So I batted it again and it flew across the room and hit the wall. Then, I inched it along the wall and into the bathroom where I whapped it again and it ricocheted off the wall and behind the toilet. It took a bit of pawing work to get it out from there and I knocked over the garbage can in the process. Whoops.
The bedroom light came on and the staff peeked in the bathroom, looking a little alarmed. Then, mad. Then, she looked at the clock and shook her head. “You’re a stinker,” she said.
For a moment, time stood still.
Then, to my relief, she went downstairs and served BREAKFAST so stinker or not, I must not be all that bad.
