Saying goodnight to mother…………
We were dressed, and ready to go out for the New Year’s Eve Party. We turned on a night light, switched the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet, and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house.
As we walked out the door, the cat we had put out in the yard, scooted back into the house. We didn’t want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird.
My wife went out to the taxi, while I went back inside to get the cat. The cat ran upstairs, with me in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, my wife didn’t want the driver to know that the house would be empty for the night. So, she explained to the taxi driver that I would be out soon, “He’s just gone upstairs to say Goodbye to my mother.”
A few minutes later, I got into the cab. “Sorry I took so long,” I said, as we drove away. “The stupid thing was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!”
The cab driver hit a parked car.
Have a lovely weekend!
You Are Thoughtful
You need to know someone a long time before you open up. You are enigmatic and reserved.
You are a visionary. You have big ideas for the future.
You are inventive and easily inspired. You like to put your spin on things.
You work best alone and at your own pace. You have a quiet and low key way about you.
This is one of the results from the quiz, The Day at the Beach Test
There’s no doubt I like to put my spin on things! lol Also true is that I work best alone and at my own pace. It’s an introvert thing. 😀
