Driving Mom Crazy 101

This lesson is entitled "Now you see me, Now you don't!". Here's how it works. On your last "out" before bed, you hop out your little doggie door and as soon as your mom turns her back, you v-e-r-r-r-r-y quietly hop back in and tippie-toe onto the carpet. You scrunch down...and shhhh...don't let anyone hear you.

I did this tonight, and a couple of minutes later, my mom pokes her head out back and says, "OK, Bed-time! Come in, please!". (I'm still really quiet and I don't even giggle). Then she says, "Where ARE you? Get in here!". THEN she gets all nutsy and starts to yell "You get IN here, Mary-Margaret! It's COLD out there!". (and I skwunch even further down behind the big leather chair!)

"IT'S BEDTIME...GET IN HERE...NOW!!!" (and she's really getting ticked, but that's the fun part). Next thing you know, she slams the slider shut, turns off the light and she thinks I don't know she's standing right by the door waiting for me to panic and come running. Nope. Not a peep from me. And it gets even better.

"AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRGGGH!", she says and opens the door again, and she starts to go upstairs. Just as she passes my hiding place I jump out and go "BOO!!".

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!", she squeals, and says stuff like ...well, you wouldn't really want me to write it here...not really! Then she scowls and says "Real funny, Mary-Margaret!" (and all the time I'm having a hard time keeping a straight face! I think I'm going to pop!). She scoops me up and goes to close the door and turn out all the lights.

"Gosh darn you, Mary-Margaret!", she scolds as we get all ready for bed. And I'm just busting out laughing and enjoying every moment. This is SOOOO much fun. Hmmm! That'll teach her to tell me to "Make it snappy!".

Us Yorkies have a pretty good sense of humor, and we just LOVE practical jokes. Let me know if you try this and how it turns out for you. My mom gets her new glasses in a couple of weeks, and I think it's going to be a lot harder to put one over on her then. But I'll keep thinking up stuff. I just love to toy with her. Yup! I do.

Love and kisses...

Mary-Margaret "The Joker" O'Brien

I love this story!

Thankfully, my dog is a little too big to be hiding from me.

I did find him on my couch this morning when I got up though!
