I've been considering this whole "C(un)IA" thing and have decided to send the Army of Four into action. Going on the offense. "Commander" Bowie made an interesting post on Arwen's blog, but I must say ... your little games won't work, Bowie. Check out the Siberian Husky standards - under "Temperament", it discusses our intelligence. You will not outwit us!
I called an Ao4 meeting and gave the troops their marching orders.
I did my ol' "looking up in the air trick". :)
Whew. Close call. I asked Zim to repeat my orders back to him, as I still wasn't sure he had heard me right. Check and double-check!
I had to break it to him that I said, "under-cover", not "under THE covers"! I knew I shouldn't have let him sit by Dave in the meeting!
I had him look up the word "infiltrate" in his dictionary (yes, Bowie... Zim can use one, too). Reading meaning number 3 seemed to clarify things for him, and he got to work.
"Gee, I didn't know there would be so much stuffing in here. Wait... I'm almost in. Ugh... OK ... got it! I'm in."
OK, guys. How do I look?
We assured him he looked purrrrr-fect.
At this time, I must give credit to Joe Stains for the idea. His comment on the "Spies Are Everywhere" post about the Trojan Horse maneuver sparked the whole caper! I really think we're on to something here!
OK, Zim ... get to work! You have an important mission!
"Oh... BOWIE! Here, kitty, kitty, kitty! Come on out! It's just me - another little kitty-cat! Wanna share some tuna?!?! Here... kitty...."
We'll keep you posted. We think our cold temps (currently zero degrees Fahrenheit) have sent all the kitties indoors - but maybe the tuna will lure them out.
