Hi Efurybuddy, Milo here!
A few weeks ago our friends Jane and Alice at the Casbah Kitten had a contest. To enter yoo hadta choose the correct answer to a scrambled word (which was BUNNYKICK) and a lot of kitties got that right. . . . so then they hadta use their Gramma Winner Generator to choose a winner, and the winner of the Gerkin Pickle prize was. . . . . . . . US! YAY!
So each day since then we have hovered around our front door whenever the postman is due and yesterday our waiting came good! The man in bloo shorts delivered this exciting package wiv our names on it! And when we opened it there was a gorjuss green gherkin inside filled wiv NIP! THANK YOO SO MUCH Jane and Alice, we LOVE IT!
Mom said I could open the packet myself (under close snoopervision) …
so I started by sniffing it … I like to SNIFF the aroma of things ferst …
then I tore open the plastic bag wiv my teef:
It wasn’t easy ‘cos it was quality packaging …
And then finally I reached the gherkin … by the way … see that frayed edge on the rug? We did that! (said boastfully)
I bunny-kicked it, I sniffed it, I rolled on it, I tossed it in the air … I LOVE IT!
It’s Awesome AND It’s MINE!
Yeah … I know it was addressed to us BOTH, but finders iz keepers! I got there ferst and it’s MINE!
The Mom: MILO!!!! PLEASE SHARE!
Milo: :sigh: OK Alfie can play wiv it for a few minutes!! But then I want it back, ‘cos it’s MINE!
Alfie: (:whispers:) I love this gherkin … I’m gonna hide it!
Five minutes later …
Milo: Mom, MOM, M O M M Mmmmm … where’s the gorjuss gherkin gone?
The Mom: I dunno, I haven’t seen it …
