Revenge of the Furniture

BUDDY:  We have just solved the mystery of Jan's aborted flying lesson on February 2 of this year.

MICAH:  And you aren't going to believe this.  It's like The Twilight Zone revisited.

RUSTY:  If you're too young to know what the Twilight Zone is, just ask your great-great-great-grandmother.

MERCI:  *elbow to Percy's ribs*  Shhhh, here comes Jan.  She has seen the Twilight Zone and she'll get very upset if you are telling readers she's from the mediaeval era.

PERCY:  It began in the early hours of February 1st.  Buddy got up and wandered around the room.  Jan wanted to sleep and when he didn't go back to bed, she took the thin lap robe Buddy uses for a blankie and snapped it in the dark.

SAM:  It caught the doorknob so she snapped it hard again.  It came loose, Buddy went back to bed, she covered him with his blankie, and that was the end of it.

MARCUS:  Only it wasn't the end of anything.  When Jan opened her eyes in the morning, this is what greeted her.  Now you know I didn't do that.  I'm a very good boy!

MERCI:  *cough, cough*  Sorry, I had a little *he he* spasm there.

CYNDI:  See, Jan didn't catch the doorknob with Buddy's blankie.  She caught the drawer handle and yanked out the drawer.  It made a nice nest for me.  Can you see me - the orange, white and black blob inside the dresser?  Ignore the brown blob on the right.  Marcus loves to have his picture taken but he gets so excited he can't stay still.

MARCUS:  I am not an excited blob.  I wanted to get in there too but I didn't fit.  You can't see Cyndi in the first picture because she was lying down.  But then she woke and started her morning bath.

CYNDI:  Excuse me.  A bath is a private ritual.  Please take the camera elsewhere.

MICAH:  Do you see?  What happened to Jan was the revenge of the offended furniture.

SAM:  Jan attacked the bureau first.  The next day Jan sprinted for the phone and one of our dog beds reared up to trip her.

RUSTY:  And the TV and stand ran interference on behalf of the Feisty Furniture team.

BUDDY:  I hope she learned a lesson.  Never snap my blankie at the furniture.  Furniture fights back!  And she really doesn't need any more holes in her head.

PERCY: By the way, the bureau said this morning it wants an apology from Jan or it will report her to the Federation of Battered and Fractured Furniture.  Who wants to be the one to inform Jan?

Friday is also time for the Pet Parade blog hop, hosted by by Rascal and Roscoe.  It is co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).

There are two parts to the blog hop - your blog url and social media, so be sure to sign up for both.

  13. This looks like another case of Murphy's Law hard at work. Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. The empty spot from the drawer does look like a comfy napping spot for kitties though!

  14. Jan has troubles everywhere and my law isn't causing it!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  15. Yikes! The furniture obviously does not mess around! That's some serious revenge. On the other hand, we bet if Jan tried to catch the drawer with Buddy's blanket ON PURPOSE, it would take about a million tries. ;)

    Thank you for co-hosting, sweet friends!

  16. Lol. Sam, I love your eyes. My eyes are two different colors as well.

  17. Yikes! That furniture is out to get you.

  18. Now that's a great way to gets into your Mommy's drawers. Mes LOVES the underwear drawer myself!
    PS Sxanuxa is Mommy. Mes forgotted to sign out of her account.

  19. We is thinking maybe Jan has found her sense of humor! Hopefully the furniture has had enough revenge to last a furry long time.

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  20. Hopefurly the revenge is now done so peace can reign at your den.
    And all meowmy/growlmy evfur was worried about was dropping a bedpan at night, thus waking all the patients up...OMC/OMD! Our uncle and auntie always ribbed her about the one time she actually did that! In her present job she has dropped a tray of someone's finished meal...still it made a big, you see Jan is not the only one with tails of big oopsies...

  21. OMC, revenge of the furniture ! It's scary ! We hope peace has come back at your home now. Mum is in peace with our home furniture, but school tables are sneaky and often attack the side of her thighs ! Purrs

  22. Oh my..revenge of the furniture...i get revenge of the towball..and man the shins can really hurt! Jan needs to be careful there!! loves Fozziemum xxxxx

  23. Oh Jan, do we need to add an "e" to the end of your name and start calling you "Calamity Jane"? LOL! Furniture is evil. You can't fight furniture. Furniture always wins.
    Love & Biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  24. Oh noo, don't we all hate it when furniture fights back... ;-) Great side effect of providing a nest though!

  25. We will never be safe again with the furniture on the verge of revenge!
