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).
