I found another way to freak out my Mom! I mentioned in an earlier post that “playing dead” is an effective way to get her going. Hmmm…. what else can I do?
Well, I usually bark my head off at the garage door opener. No way is a burglar going to get in this house using that! So today I decided to freak out Mom by not only doing nothing while the garage door was going up and down; I also resisted the urge to greet her at the top of the steps. It took tremendous restraint, but I didn’t move a muscle the whole time:
It was great! Mom ran around the house screaming “Minnie, Minnie!” while I waited patiently in the bedroom (the above and following pictures are a re-enactment, that’s why I’m not in the bedroom). Then, I lifted my head:
“Hi Mom – how was your day?” Ha Ha Ha Ha. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel. She’s got nothing to complain about, because I’m not barking like someone suffering from dementia.
On a different note, I found a tasty napkin in Kristy’s old bedroom to shred:
Not as good as a dish towel, but I’ll take whatever comes my way. I had to get on top of the desk to grab it. Mom might think it’s out of my reach, but I am pretty resourceful.
I hope you have a great start to the weekend. I love you!
