A Lot of Mischief


RUSTY:   I don't recognize these.  I hope they aren't the new curtain ties.  They'll clash with the curtains.


MERCI:  They are not a them; they're an it - singular.  Or at least they used to be an it before a certain someone chewed it and turned it into a them.

BUDDY:  You're not making any sense, Merci.  How can a them be an it?


MERCI:  If you remember this used to be my leash.  My new leash after Marcus chewed through your leash and my leash on the same walk.  (Marcus the Menace)  That was on February 14. Just three weeks later Marcus chewed through my new leash.

MARCUS:  Hey, I did no such thing!  Why do you all keep blaming me for everything that happens?

BUDDY:  Because you're generally responsible.  In this case, I was standing there watching you do it so I can testify to your guilt.

MERCI:  You watched him do it?  Why didn't you stop him?

BUDDY:  A guy has to get into some mischief or other guys will think he's a goody two shoes ... er, paws.

MARCUS:  Thank you, Buddy.  I think.  When am I supposed to have committed this mischief?

MERCI:  On Monday, the 7th.  You hid behind Jan while she spoke with the water guys after we returned from our morning walk and you deliberately chewed my leash in half.  She didn't notice until we reached the front door and she was holding three leashes but I was standing at the top of the steps.

MARCUS:  The 7th?  I can't remember what I was doing almost two weeks ago.  I've accomplished a lot of mischief ... I mean, a lot has happened since then.

RUSTY:  You can say that again!

MARCUS:  Why, didn't you hear me the first time?

RUSTY:  Of course I heard you.  I was just agreeing with you.  You certainly have accomplished a lot of mischief since then!

  8. Marcus, I think you need to learn to chew gum. It will give you something to do for a long time instead of making curtain ties out of leashes!

    1. What a great idea! Except then Marcus would leave his chewing gum around where we could stick to the floor, the chair ... He's not very good at cleaning up after himself.

  15. Jan must have been talking to those water guys for a long time for you to accomplish that. Guess it's a good thing Merci didn't bolt when she realized she and Jan were no longer attached. Thank you so much for coming to Fiona and Giulietta's Birthday Party. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  16. OMD!
    You and your chewing habits,Marcus...
    Maybe your Mom should invent a chewproof leash that isn't hard on the hands, like a chain leash is...but at least you would have a hard time chewing through that kind....do you need MJF's old chain leash...Pee Ess...it has a leather handle, that would be fun to chew:))
    Growlmy discarded it because...it hurt her hands, BOL! I don't think your Mom needs any more ouches.....
