Texts From Mittens: The Stuck-in-Mom’s-Shorts Edition


What happens when Mittens gets bored? He takes bad advice and finds himself stuck inside the leg of Mom’s shorts. Stumpy lied when he said this “tunneling” would be a good idea. Mittens believes it might be the worst day ever. And, of course, Mom sends Drunk Patty over to help, resulting in a strange but hilarious dance party.

Speaking of Patty, she thinks a feral squirrel is going to boost her luck at the casino. And it looks like the rodent will travel in Mittens’ carrier. Aghast!

Oh, and guess what? Mom is giving Mitty all kinds of trouble. She refuses to buy him a Judge Judy phone case, and she won’t give him any Bar Mitzvah presents, even though he’s pretty sure he’s grandfathered in as a member of the Jewish faith. Will life ever be fair? Mittens isn’t so sure.
