I am so flattered!

Been caught in any good traps lately? Looks like you are limping a little.

I stubbed my toe on a shoddy piece of human engineering.

Never can trust an animal around furniture. They either break it, eat it, or hurt themselves. Just goes to show the superiority of Humans.

If it had been put together properly, the bit I stubbed my toe on wouldn't have been hanging loose.

Shoddy, I tell you - SHODDY!

I tried to be subtle last time, sir. What you perceive as shoddy, animal, is what those Order Rodentia teeth have destroyed in your wanderings around the house. You're NOT house trained yet. So stop complaining or we will send you back to the pond.

oooOOOoooh, get you!

I stubbed my toe on a piece of a metal fireguard. I don't eat metal. I don't even nibble it. It's SHODDY. Probably made in Texas!

If you wouldn't imbibe as much as you do, there would be no stubbed toe.



Denial in the disease of over-indulgence causes one to blame everything but themselves for their troubles. Please seek professional help.

Imbibe? You are having a laugh, aren't you! I hardly drink at all these days. I had 1 glass of cider on Saturday and that's all since before Christmas.

Brat 1 gets thrown at the school bus & brat 2 doesn't go until 1pm.

Oh dear. You appear to have overstretched your ability in English language yet again. If you use the singular impersonal, the sentence should be...

"Denial in the disease of over-indulgence causes one to blame everything but oneself for one's troubles"

I would also query your use of "Denial in...". That should more-correctly be "Denial of...".

Again, the insistence of pointing to the way the message is delivered and ignoring the substance of said message, indicates denial. I am so sorry.

I do believe that your were stoked to the gills when you tried to eat firewood as a midnight snack and stubbed your toe on the andiron. There, carefully laid wood the for morning fire was all over the place and incisor teeth marks were found on many of the pieces that had apparently been tasted, thrown over your shoulder in rejection. The fireplace was a shambles and the decanter of scotch had been drained dry. Butler said I should never have allowed you the dignity of staying in the main house.

That must have been quite some dream you had. What had you been smoking before you went to bed?

It still begs the question of Butler's recollection. He doesn't indulge in anything - he is a Presbyterian.

Presbyterian? That explains it. Too much blood in his alcohol stream.

Perhaps you need more anti-psychotics so you won't tear up the fire again.

This is a blanket I am putting over you - NO, it isn't a shroud. Just sleep it off where you are.

Well, actually it was a shroud for the trash but, what the heck, the castor glands are just too much. They would ruin a decent blanket. It was as kind as I could bring myself to be. Be glad I didn't let you freeze. It was 23 F (- 5 C) for the imperially challenged) at the air port here last night.
