Reenactment and Valentine's Day Poem

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  Up here.

You didn't think Zim was the only one who came up here to do cute poses, did you?  Woo!

Anyway, so Zim and I were talking about that reenactment he mentioned yesterday - you know, where he got on the ledge up here on the cat-walk and it freaked Mom out and so we don't have a picture of it.  I thought a reenactment was a great idea, so I grabbed the camera, so he could get up there and I could take his picture.  Well, Zim gets distracted pretty easily... and by the time I got the camera, he had moved on to trying to come up with a Valentine's Day poem.  

I was already up there - up here...

...and wanted to get on with it.  Stormy said she had an idea and that she'd help me out.  She's not only smart, she's really nice.  She got her little squ... uh, puppy to help, too.  OK, here goes.

Storm balanced her ...puppy up on the railing.

See how narrow it is?  The ...puppy could barely balance up there.  And this particular kind of ...puppy can balance pretty easily.  Trust me - I've seen them on power lines and stuff.

Oh, and hey.  There's Zim down there!  You can see how hard he's working on his poem.  (There he is, down there on screen right!)

Whatcha got so far, little bro?

Kongs are red,

Dino bones are blue...

Hmm... not there yet, huh?  You'll get it!

Stormy’s collar is red, 

My left eye is blue... 

Dave’s eyes are blue.

Ammy is sweet,

Ha roo roo roo!

Nah, I don't have it yet, Dave!
You'll get it, Zim!  Stick with it!

Now... where were we?  Oh, yeah.  Stormy's ...puppy was balancing on the railing.

As you can tell, there's no way one of us could balance up there.  But there's another ledge just below that; it starts as sort of part of the railing, then is like a plant shelf.  Here's a look at that:

See?  A Sibe could easily balance up there.  Even though it's real high and all.  But we could do it if we wanted to. 

Storm left her ...puppy there for a minute to go see how Zim was doing with his Valentine's poem.  I thought that might not have been the best decision she's ever made, and I seized the opportunity to go get acquainted with that furry little fiend ...

You're mine, you little squ...

...but then Storm came up out of nowhere, snapped the picture real fast, and grabbed her ...puppy before I could get to it.  Woo.  Storm said that's what she had planned all along, so she could capture the "sneaky Sibe look".  She really IS soooo smart!

By the way, congrats to Zim for winning the Working Group Reader's Choice Award over at Mango-Minster.  He tied with Waldo, so a big congrats to Waldo, too!  And to everypuppy!

And... I think Zim has wrapped up his poem.  Let's see what he's got!

Stormy's collar is red,

Mine is blue.

Ammy is sweet.

Dave says, "Wooooo!"

I think he's really got a winner there.  I especially like the last line.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of our wonderful readers; may your hearts be filled with love today and all days.
