There was a big sale. Betty stocked up.
Because it was terrible.
I know – I know – there was a friend in the backyard last night wanting to play with me. We all knew. I begged and cried and pleaded with Betty to let me out. She refused (she’s stone cold). So I went to Poppy to make my case; he just kept snoring. I never got to play with what I’m sure would have been a wonderful new friend, based on the noise in the yard.
How it all went down, according to Pickles:
Jessica Rabbit escaped! Thank goodness she didn’t get far before I was able to retrieve her and bring her back into the house, right at Betty’s feet. Everyone was very relieved.
Now for Betty’s take:
When Pickles doesn’t think she’s receiving enough attention, she tries to entice us by running into the backyard with inside toys, expecting a lively chase. But today, there was no choice. Piks got tired of waiting, so she brought Jessica back inside on her own.
There is a universal truth – that there is a particular order to things. When that order is broken – violated, even – one must quickly decide how to react.
One can embrace the change.
Or, one can plow through and restore the order to its original state.
