my night

Oh my goodness! Let me tell you what happened last night! First of all, Massah came home from work early! It was so much fun! We got to eat dinner at 4-00 instead of waiting until 6-00! And then she went upstairs and started to get ready for something. Mean Sister Fig says that it's always a bad sign when she comes home from work and tries to look nice; she says that means she's leaving again. And she was right. Massah left to go to a banquet for work. BUT! She didn't put us in our jails!!! She let us stay out and run around!!! And then something very, VERY scary happened....

I thought I would try to go upstairs. I DON'T KNOW WHY I WANTED TO TRY THAT!!!!! It just came over me - the desire to walk up there all by myself. *sigh* Fig goes up there all the time - sometimes she even takes BONES up there so I can't get them. Maybe I thought I'd find a bone. Maybe I thought I'd find Massah. Maybe I thought I'd be really brave. Maybe I thought I could find some cotton balls. Maybe I thought I'd sleep on the bed. I DON'T KNOW!!!!! I won't tell you how long it took me to get up there. I got half-way up and then got really scared. But I can't go down the stairs AT ALL - that's even more scary than walking UP them - so I just had to go up one tiny little step at a time. I don't even know what Fig was doing all this time - I was so focused on NOT FALLING DOWN. (I've fallen down TWICE with Massah... she's pretty clumsy.) But I eventually made it all the way up without mishap. And then I was stuck up there. So what did Massah see when she got home?!


There I was! Standing up there waiting for her to rescue me! I was SO HAPPY to see her!!! She said, "Tadpole, what did you DO?!" So I showed her.


I rearranged all her clothes! There were sitting there in a nice clean pile, and NOBODY likes nice clean piles, so I spread them out all over!


And I chewed on that boot for her too!


She didn't seem quite as thankful as I thought she would be, so I blamed it on Fig. "It's Fig's fault! Look at that evil glint in her eye!"


Whew! I was tired after that excitement so I laid down and took a nap. Look how close I got to Mean Sister Fig! I don't think she even knew I was there.


So all in all it was a good night. I made it upstairs by myself and I squirmed close enough to Fig when I was sleeping that I got to touch her! What more could I ask for?!

WooHoo! I'm proud of you, Tad! Going up the winding staircase is a real challenge. You did well!

Great job getting up that staircase all by yourself. Oh and you look like cozy next to Fig.

You deserve a treat for your bravery. Next thing you know, you'll be going down them all by yourself!

Lorenza said...

It takes a lot to do what you did. Going upstairs by yourself and to arrange your massahs clothes.
I love you and Fig.

G'day Tad, How exhausted you must be - first climbing those stairs and then doing all that work! I hope massah appreciates you! Sometimes hoomans are so ungrateful. Once I spent half a day decorating our living room with mud and instead of a treat, mum put me in jail and took away all the mud! xxx Asta

Billy said...

You made it up the stairs!! Way to go...you did a pretty nice job of rearranging all your mom's clothes...I thought the colour assortment was great. I can't believe she didn't appreciate all your hard work! Hoomans, I'll never understand them...

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Hi Tadpole. I'd be happy if you link me to your blog. I want to be your friend.
Thanks.

wow, your massah is lucky that all you did was arrange her clothes and taste her boots!!

Bruin said...

Good job Tad!! Your mom should appreciate your rearranging more....like mine should when I rearrange the trash!

Hey Tads,
Congrats on getting up that staircase. Erm..i thought you did a great job with the clothes..can't figure out why Massah was so shocked. Great color co-ordination if you ask me.

Good going Tadpole! You be careful going up those stairs though...it's not fun falling down them (not that I've ever fallen down any stairs).

I think you have a future as an interior decorator. Trading Spaces could use some new blood.

Wow Taddy...what a big boy you are. You must have been so scared!!! I know when I was learning how to walk up the stairs how scared I was!

Be careful, but keep trying!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Now you've done it once there'll be no stopping you. Mum might want to put her clothes in the cupboard!

Tad, You're a total dare devil!

How RUDE to not be appreciative of your fine decorating skills AND your total bravery.

WoW you are brave dude, I don't think I could go up those stairs.

Boy Fig must have been upset, she lost her hiding place for bones and you were touching her in her sleep.

Wow Tadpole! Does this mean you get locked up when she leaves now?
