The Deej Goes Postal

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

DG walked up to me and said he needed one of his “silly pretty pixshurs” because he wanted to “hiccup codajoe”.

“Why the sudden decision to hook up Dakota Joe with one of your celebrity pictures?” I asked.

“He sayd I wuz ‘damn’ cute. I am thinkee that is even cuter than Diblet.”

“Yeah, you know, I happen to think you’re the cutest kitteh on the planet.”

“So does codajoe, evindentedly. You gettee teh pixshur for me DG or wut?”

“Sure, but I'm guessing Dakota Joe thinks his own cat is cuter, Deej. And he just goes by DJ now. I don’t even think his name is really Joe.”

“Less talkee, more celery pity pixshur! And also a box to mail it in!”

“I’ll get you an envelope."

Taking the paper trash out to the recycling bin, a familiar something caught my eye. I didn't need to examine it further; I knew exactly what it was. I went back inside and found DG in the kitchen lounging in a flat of drinking water.

“Say, you ever mail that photo to DJ?”

The Deej blinked. “M-hm.”

“Really? How? You don’t have any stamps. You can’t reach the mailbox.”

“I fond stamps in yur bedroom – dog ones and spacee ones…" He licked his left foreleg for a few moments, then continued, "…then I dressed it and put it with teh rest of teh mails.”

It all came together. “Ha! You put it in the paper recycling, DG! I almost threw it out…”

“Well mail it alreddy wuld you? It wuz sposed to be there a week ago!!!”

*sigh* There’s just no pleasing a cat.

Very sorry for the delay, DJ. It’s on its way now…

    That Deej is incorrigible. (don't incorrige him!)HRTortie loves those water flat boxes too. We have to keep them around for her. TK's just now getting the hang of them.

    Dear DG, We're happy to see that Kirk's training is coming right along. He picked right up on the recycling trick.<3jaypo

    Ha! Thanks, DG, you're the best!

    Wait a second, cats do not like water… What's going on there? Is he covering someting up? Mighty suspicious…

    I believe it's another of his latent kitten instincts. As a young feline, he quite enjoyed a good water dish romp (cf. "AquaPussy" from The Book of Deej, Chapter 2).He was crashed out there again last night. Trying to get a bottle of water without waking him is like playing a bizarre version of Operation. 😛

    "HRTortie loves those water flat boxes too. We have to keep them around for her." When DG was crashed last night, Karin wondered what he was going to do when the water was gone. Of course, she knows he's quite capable of convincing her to go back to Costco and get more.

    Tortie likes us to leave the plastic on b/c she loves licking plastic. When it's empty, then we take the plastic off and she lounges in it. Either stropping her toes, or (if she sees us) doing the Tortie Wiggle so we'll admire her cuteness. We don't take water out of the box when it's occupied by the pretty pretty princess kitty.Fabulous Daddy searched the grocery stores so he could get an extra-large flat of water. The 24-bottle size is ok, but the 35-bottle is EVEN BETTER.

    Just don't leave your neck open to attack next time you get a bottle of water. I think he knows your weakness now…
