Yesterday was my second birthday. At first I was rather disgusted at Mom because she seemed to be celebrating my birthday by being gone all afternoon photographing her best friend's dogs for her best friend's website!
I thought, "How DARE Mom waste time on my birthday photographing DOGS of all things!"
I wanted to chomp some of Mom's cords to get even with her and to really make my point about how inconsiderate it was of Mom to be gone all afternoon. However, Carina and Gyselle were both laying in the areas where Mom's cords are.
Carina and Gyselle are still newcomers, having only been here a little over a month. As usual with newcomers, they still tend to be nervous and tend to overreact defensively aggressively when they get scared or feel threatened. When I tried to make them vacate the areas where the cords are by threatening them, instead of leaving they both hissed fiercely and swatted at me in no-nonsense ways that told me that if I pushed them any further, they would defend themselves. Not wanting to risk a fight, scratch, or bite from either of them, I backed down.
It was then that I spotted books stacked near the edge of the headboard. Here was the perfect way to get even with Mom and make my point. Here there were no armed obstacles in my way. Into action I sprang. Up I went, down those books went. On I moved to the next stack of books, with the same result. After the headboard was cleared of books, I turned my attention to some of the bookshelves in the living room where books had been stacked on each other near the edge of the shelves. CRASH! Down those books went too.
My plan succeeded beautifully except for one major point. When Mom came home and found the books that had been knocked down and scattered all over the place, she DIDN'T KNOW WHO DID IT. Now what is the point of getting even if the target of your vengeance doesn't know it's you who is upset at them? There was only one thing I could do to salvage the situation. As soon as Mom had picked up one stack of books and restacked it, I went and knocked it over again right in front of her.
"Uno, I haven't forgotten your birthday," Mom said. "In fact I bought some cheese sauce with my breadsticks just so I could share it with you as your birthday treat."
I must confess after Mom said that, I felt just a tiny bit ashamed of myself...but only a little itsy-bitsy teeny tiny bit!
And yes, I very much enjoyed my cheese sauce birthday treat!
