Anyway, so there we all were the other night - Mom and Dad were watching a movie, Dave was snoozing, and me? I was looking for a bit more excitement! I went up on the catwalk to get a view of the scene.
Look at poor Dave down there! He really needs something to cheer him up!
Yep. It's time to Zimstigate some fun around here!
Watch this! This is going to be great; I know how to kick things up!
You know the "No Siberians Allowed on the Furniture Rule"? Let's start with that one!
|"Ha roooooo! I'm on the ottoman! Ha rooooo!"|
You have no idea how fun that was! Until ...
Hmm. Where have I heard those words before? And what do they mean? Probably not important.
|"Hey, Dad! What's shakin'?"|
Then I remembered - "NoNoZimmieNO!" is a cheer they do when I do something particularly fun! And not only was Dad cheering me on, but he was clapping for me! That's when things took a turn for the better!
Since we had so much fun, I'm switching the pix into cartoon mode.
|"Play bows, Dad!"|
"Right back at you, Zim!"
I had to wonder if Dad knew what signal he was sending me with his body posture. I think Mom did; in fact, I think I heard her start praying under her breath. (Mom's nice like that.) I think you all know what came next.
I swooshed into the dining room, then back into the living room! Flew up onto the catwalk, back into the living room, and another lap around the dining room table! Then I flew back into the living room, around the dining room table again ...
|"Must keep low to the ground ... and very still ..."|
...and kept the party going like that for a good long while! There were shouts and cheers of amazement and joy from Mom and Dad!
|"My work here is done. For now!"|
It was tons of fun, trust me!
If you'd like to see more photos, please visit the set on FlickR. And sure, Mom may have acted a tad bit shocked (mostly about the ottoman...) but it's like Stormy always taught me -- if the bipeds are taking pictures, you're not reeeeeeeally in too much trouble! Have a great weekend, everyone!
