I had quite an adventure this morning and I timed it just right, just as my mom was getting ready to leave for work. Lately, I have taken to jumping onto the kitchen counter to get to the top of the fridge so I could bend over and push all the magnets off the fridge and onto the floor so I could play with them. I decided to do it again this morning, but my sister Mercy was on the counter in my way so I lost my balance and knocked over these little glass jars containing coffee flavoring powders. Glass shattered and powders covered the floor. There was not a kitty in sight! Mom didn't get mad as she knew we got scared, but she was tap dancing with our dog Quincy to keep him away from the mess until she could get the broom and vacuum.
When mom came to check on me, she noticed I had reddish brown spots on my legs and sides and realized I was bathed in cinnamon! She must've thought I smelled really good because she kept smelling me over and over, but then I saw her get the towel and I knew I was going to get a second bath, and this time there was going to be water involved. Darn! If only I had stepped in the vanilla powder, then maybe I could have avoided the water bath.
Whether I ever jump on the fridge again will be another story, but as long as there are magnets I just might.......
