Tuesday Tattle Tail

Now, y'all know I love my momma, but I have to share with you a couple of examples of how she's kinda slow about some things.

See all of the toys and papers to shred she puts up on the refrigerator?

Leaping up and whapping the toys off is a super fun game, and then the papers come floating down and you can jump on them. It's really fun. But she gets all upset and keeps telling me to "Stop it, JJ!"

Why on Earth would she put toys up and then not want them to be played with?

For a while I thought, "well, maybe she just wants me to play a game that she can join in on, because she's too overgrown to leap up and whap." So I toss toys under the refrigerator so she can play at getting them back out. But she just says, "oh, for crying out loud," or "honestly, Jimmy Joe" whenever I try to play with her by knocking mousies or nippy toys under the fridge.

So that's my tattle tail for today. Apparently Momma isn't too bright when it comes to games.

I used to play that game. Mom would laugh and laugh when I would pull the stuff off. But now she doesn't put stuff on our new fridge. But I sure like putting mousies under there too.

Have fun!

Oh, that sounds like a fun game, Jimmy Joe! Sadly, we don't have a fridge that you can stick things on (most German fridges are built right into the cupboards, so ours has a wooden door). Plus, we normally aren't allowed in the kitchen - the door to the kitchen is kept closed.

The whapping the toys under the fridge game is great. I tell Mommy it helps her get her exercise when she has to fish the toys out from underneath. I'm just thoughtful like that...

That sounds like fun! We like to whap our toys under the entertainment center, but Mommy does not seem to like playing that game. Our beans are weird Jimmy Joe, totally weird!

They don't always seem to appreciate our games, I just don't know why.

Hehehehe, that is a funny game!!

Sunny's Mommy said...

I have to agree with you, she's not too bright. That's a great game you have, Jimmy Joe!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oops. Are you sure you want to put in writing that your mom isn't too bright at games?

Wrigley & Cobalt said...

Wow our beans sound VERY alike!! Our beans taped towels to the floor underneath the fridge and the oven so that our toys can't go under there anymore. No fun for us, but good for them.

Beans can leave a lot to be desired when it comes to brights. Seems they were behind the door when the brains were passed out.

Umm JJ, my SS is like that too. There are lots of colourful magnets on the fridge door that beg to be whapped. Of course I obliged and have lots of bits of paper all over the kitchen floor. SS doesn't like it one bit!
