Mum was boooorrrrriiinnngg last night. She was marking assignments so all she was doing was riffling paper and muttering, "Good. Very good.","You haven't really answered the question," and "Where is Part B? Please tell me you haven't missed Part B." (They had.)
A cat who is honoured with being a Diary Pick should really get all the attention in the home but all I got was the odd head rub and a promise she wouldn't be long.
But I am a resourceful boy and can find my own amusement at such times. I looked around at what else was on the table. Fruit bowl. Hm. What might be in there? Ah, grapes! My favourite fruit. I had fun picking one that wasn't attached to the rest and hoicking it out of the bowl. Then I chased it all around the table and mum laughed so I had her attention. Then it escaped off the table and I jumped down in hot pursuit.
More fun chasing it then on to other toys.
It wasn't until later I saw mum doing something interesting. She was poking around under the chairs and behind the curtain.
"What are you doing?" I asked.
"Looking for your grape," she replied.
"He's long gone," I told her.
"Grapes don't just go. Where is he?" she wanted to know.
"You have lots of other grapes. Eat one of them. That one's mine." I told her.
But mum said she really wanted to find my grape. She said otherwise time will do its thing and she'll be able to find it from a smell of rotting fruit and a buzz of fruit flies. That sounded like the more interesting option so I left her to it.
The story ends happily. She never did find the grape but she did find one of Josie's toy mice that she had lost. She is going to look again today in the light but he is very well hidden so this could be more fun for us to watch.
Thank you to everyone for your kind messages on me being a Diary Pick. I feel very special.

MOL, I wonder where that grape got to.
Haha! I loves hitting prawns around, but they doesn't roll so goods as grapes. But they go stinky quicker if you can hide them!
Congrats for being a diary pick mate. The diary chick really digs you and you don't tell poopie stories. Have fun with your grape.
Small, round...yeah that would be a great toy.
