Telling on Jan

Cameron:  Mmmmfth, munff.  Oh, sorry, I was just having a late breakfast. Around here breakfast is always late.  We think Jan needs a new watch.

Micah:  Speaking of a watch, are we allowed to tell a story on Jan?

Sam:  Are you kidding?  We tell stories on Jan all the time.  What's one more?

Merci:  Okay,  Jan belongs to a club.  Yesterday it was her turn to be the timer.

Rusty:  Oh, I know where this is going.  Jan set the timer, walked off and forgot it and burned their lunch.

Percy:  No, it's not a cooking club.  It's a speaking club and the speakers are timed.

Cyndi:  Yes, she was supposed to start the stopwatch and turn lights on and off so each speaker would know when to zip the lip and sit.

Marcus:  So what was the problem?  I don't imagine Jan could handle turning lights on and off in correct sequence, but surely she could manage the timing without our help!

Buddy:  Not exactly.  The speaker started talking and Jan pressed the stopwatch.  Nothing happened.  She kept pressing and still nothing happened.  How could she time the speaker without a timer?  So she got up, walked to the president's chair, and whispered she couldn't get the stopwatch to work.

Cameron:  So what happened?  Did the president stop the meeting and make the speaker start his speech over again?

Sam:  No.  He turned the stopwatch upside right and handed it back to Jan.

Percy:  Last week we said we would post a Mousebreath interview with Max the Psychokitty today, but we decided to postpone it one more week since he and his human are finishing his latest book.

Rusty:  Oh, speaking of the interviews, we are open to volunteers or suggestions for future interviews.  . 

Come join the Pet Parade blog hop.  It is hosted by Rascal and Rocco.  Be sure to stop by to say hello and to find out who is this week's Featured Favorite.

It's co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).
