This afternoon mama brought out a monster. It didn't look that scary when it was quiet in our office, but then she brought it to the dining room. She took a string and hooked it to the wall. Then she pushed a button, and the monster started to growl real loud. Then mama took papers and started feeding the growling monster. He eats PAPER! Oh, my gosh; he is a very scary monster. He eats big papers and little papers and even old checks. Every so often, mama would stop feeding the monster. He would be quiet while she took the shredded paper out of his tummy, but then she would start feeding him again, and he would growl real loud and eat more paper.
That was bad enough, but then when the monster had eaten all our paper, mama got out the big sucking machine. I do not like the sucking machine. He is big and scary, and I am pretty sure he will suck up kittens if he gets the chance. Mama said I was very brave today because I didn't run away and hide. I sat on a dining room chair and watched the big noisy sucking machine. I was ready for a quick escape if he got too close. Finally everything was quiet. The sucking machine and the monster were both locked away, so now I feel safe again.
Oh my you are brave Gunnar T, when mom brings our machines out we either all run out to the sunporch or hide under the bed.
I usually sleep while the paper eater monster is at work. After Mom finishes up and puts the shreddy paper in a bag, though, that's the best. I love to pester the bag until I can get it open, and then I climb inside and take a nap on the shreddy paper. It makes a really cozy bed and then after my nap I stretch, and yawn, and drag bits of shreddy paper out with my tail all over. Mom tells me I leave a shreddy paper trail all over. It doesn't make Mom very excited about me sleepin' in the bag, but no matter how carefully she closes it up, if she doesn't haul it away right away then I always find a way in. It's my job to examine all boxes and empty bags and sometimes not so empty. I also like to get to know Mom's new clothes before they get out of the bags. It's my job to make sure they smell like me.
Thank goodness they were locked away....the sucking monster has been all over lately, it's awful...some new Dyson thing that they just won't put away!
