NaBloPoMo DAY 18:
Oliver Twist hates taking baths, but he loves getting soaked. Let me explain.
Put him in a tub, as I do every so often, and he hates it. He gets all squirmy and tries to claw my arms into pulp as he tries desperately to climb out of the tub. Trust me. It’s not pretty.
When that fails, he goes into “Nervous Nellie” mode and starts shivering as if he’s about to meet his maker.
“Woe is me,” he seems to be crying, “I’m being held prisoner in a tub of soapy water.”
So, baths make him miserable. But it’s a whole other ball of wax when he sees me reaching for the hose to water the plants. Then, all bets are off. He wants in and he’s not afraid to jump through hoops to get a lick of the spray of water coming out of the hose. Given the chance, he’d do this everyday, I kid you not.
Watch the video and see for yourself!
Good news: I’m still posting and I’m still in one piece! How do you like them apples??
And because I know reading a daily blog takes a lot of time, I’m awarding a prize to the one person who has commented on the most posts this month. If there’s a tie, I’ll do a drawing.
Thank you, too, to all of you who keep reading my posts. Clearly you have nothing better to do than to make this dolt a very happy camper! Thank you very much!
