Pay No Attention to That Dog Behind the Curtain
Posted by whatimeant2say
I have a confession to make. Wonderbutt is a sham.
No, he eats shams.
No, he hasn’t actually eaten a sham yet, come to think about it. Just the actual pillows. Too bad, because I don’t really like our shams.
Anyway – what was I talking about?
Oh yes, Wonderbutt’s False Front.
Wow, bet that particular phrase has never been typed before. Would that be an oxymoron?
O.K. I’m done meandering now. Let’s start over.
Wonderbutt likes to talk a big talk – squeaking his toy relentlessly while some people are trying TO think, DARN IT!
But when he feels like anyone is going to actually challenge him in any kind of serious way, he runs and “hides.”
Behind our curtain.
He likes to go there when he has a toy he does not want to share, when he wants to get our attention during dinner, when he feels the slightest bit threatened, or just when he feels like it.
Amazingly, the curtain rod has not fallen on top of him – or anyone else – yet.
I’m hoping he will come out wearing a cape one day.
But so far, this is the only transformation I’ve seen.
