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?!
