Marcus Has A Blankie
Marcus: Really, Jan, you think this is funny? Stop laughing! I can still hear you in the kitchen.
Cyndi: I think you look cute. You remind me of one of those pictures of an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh.
Marcus: No, this is not any better. I am not a butterfly.
Cyndi: I hear you complaining but I haven't heard you saying thank you for the lovely gift. By the way, how did you rate a special gift all your own?
Marcus: Stella Rose, Angus, Maggie and their mom think I deserve something special for being such a good boy all the time.
Cyndi: I hope you don't think anyone is going to believe that. Why don't you tell the truth?
Marcus: Okay, but I like my version better! She explained it in a blog comment yesterday. "Dear Marcus, we are so happy you liked your new blankie. We sent that to you to cos mom read a post where you could not find yours. Stella Rose"
Cyndi: She must mean the post where you were wailing about losing your blankie. (Since I Lost My Blankie) But you didn't lose your blankie, you lost your bedding - except you were sleeping on it at the time. So, actually, you got a new blankie under false pretenses.
Marcus: That's okay, I still love it, just not when Jan makes me pose wearing it. Thank you so much to the Three Little Pugs for giving me such a nice blankie of my own. It was a nice surprise.
Cyndi: It worked for you. Do you think it would work for me? I guess it won't hurt to try. I really loved my nip nanner and I really miss it.
Marcus: You never had a nip nanner!
Cyndi: You never had a blankie either!
