Yesterday, as soon as Mom got up and dressed,
I retreated to my Unhappy Place under the desk.
I was certain she was going to make me go someplace
I didn't want to go.
Again, however, she went on the usual mail run
When she returned home, she coaxed me outside.
And what a beautiful day outside it was!
It was so warm!
The occasional gust of wind was pleasant and
had so many springtime smells on it!
I stayed out there as long as Mom would allow.
Which, as it turns out was quite a long time!
I even got in a great roll on the sidewalk.
It was so nice, I got to stay out until
the shadows got pretty long.
Even after we went inside, Mom spent
a decent amount of time playing with me.
When evening came, so did the Monday People.
Mom, Daddy, Monday Aunt and Uncle and Sarcastic Monday.
Everyone was there!
I got a bit rambunctious and ran all over the house,
meowing my enthusiasm.
After all the Monday People went home,
Mom found me here:
In the dark dining room, looking out the
window from the forbidden vantage point.
On top of the dining table!
I guess after such a great day I thought I could get
away with pushing my boundaries.
Just between you and me,
I got away with it longer than Mom will ever know!
