It´s tricky but i´ll get it in the end.
Here you are; try using this wooden thing to poke it out.
How am I supposed to get my paws around that Mr. Midnight? You can´t even properly hold the thing yourself.
I´m only trying to be of service. Fancy knocking it behind the warmth generating thing on the wall.
Hi boys. What´s happening? Have you lost something?
We were both feeling a little bored, what with the water dropping out of the sky all the time, and so I decided to have a “kick-about” with that sweetie wrapper you scrunched into a ball last night while playing with us.
At least you managed to find out where the wrapper got to. And now you´ve got it stuck behind the radiator?
We can´t help it daddy. It´s raining cats and dogs outside.
That´s a strange expression Mr. Midnight. Where´d you pick it up?
Mr cool Dog from next door uses the term quite a lot. I love copying his cool habits. But when thinking about it, I don´t want to copy ALL of his habits. He´s got some very embarrassing habits you know.
Well he´s a dog. He´s bound to have some strange habits. I do love watching him in a morning though, you know, when he takes his human for a walk. He loves to lead and show his human who´s in control. He´s so sure of himself. I couldn´t behave like that.
I don´t particularly want to behave like that. If I had to take daddy for a walk everyday I´d get tired very quickly. We cats are not supposed to take humans for walks. That´s a dogs thing, although I´ve also heard that dogs are supposed to walk behind their masters. Still, Mr Dog is very cool and he does love doing things quite the opposite.
I´ve managed to remove your “ball” from behind the radiator.
Thanks daddy. My legs were not long enough to stretch behind the radiator.
No problem. Perhaps you should play in the living room next time. The study is rather small.
We will daddy. There´s not enough room to swing a cat in the study.
I beg your pardon Mr Midnight. Which of us two is going to get swung around the study?
It´s only a figure of speech Sir Winston. Keep your britches on. Nobody´s swinging anybody today.
Mr. Midnight means that there is not enough room to play in the study. Don´t worry Sir Winston. I think Mr. Midnight´s copying Mr Dog again.
I don´t know what britches are anyway. It just sounds like a nice word.
Britches (or breeches) are knee-length trousers so I don´t think Sir Winston has to worry about keeping his britches on. He doesn´t wear any. 🙂
Fancy copying other peoples words when you´re not sure what they mean. It seems rather daft if you ask me.
Well I´m glad that daddy let the cat out of the sack because now I´m more the wiser. 🙂
And what´s with all these strange “cat” expressions. You wouldn´t get me in a sack.
Mr Dog has certainly got his influence upon you Mr. Midnight. You´re starting to frighten Sir Winston.
Like I´ve already said. If you´re going to use words and sentences you should be aware of what they actually mean. It´s neither cool or hip to use words when one is not aware of their real meaning.
But people do things like that all the time. I just wanted to try and “slip into the groove” of your society.
People love cool things.
But there should also be some authenticity to your “cool” actions.
Why not create YOUR OWN cool image instead of copying from others?
It could be a little bit like hard work but thank you daddy, I´ll chew your wise words over.
If you find daddy´s words too dry when chewing them over have a bowl of milk afterwards. That always works wonders. 😉
I´m not the same as Mr Dog but I can still be cool – but in my own, special way.
That sounds like a very good idea Mr. Midnight. Discover your own individuality and give us all a break from those terrible, human cat expressions.
And you stop being such a scaredy cat Sir Winston. Words can´t harm you.
I think they can! Words are more powerful than you think.
Well I´m going to think about what daddy said about being individual and cool, which reminds me. Purrrhaps I may also have a bite to eat with which to accompany my “chewing of words” activity.
And I´m going to chill a bit more and not take life so seriously. After all, if you wish to enjoy life to the full one must be authentic and true to oneself.
