Crackers and Bits: A Deal Is Struck
Mousie is still off the job…so I decided enough was enough…knowing how lazy the mouse can be, I decided he shouldn’t be making so many demands when he hardly deserves such a reward. I mean, c’mon Morguie, you certainly aren’t able to compete with your cousin here:
Mousie says “Hey, that looks a bit abusive!”
“What?” I say.
“Does that poor little mousie in the video eventually get SOMETHING for all of the drudgery he must endure? Look at him! He’s cooking, babysitting, expected to save money, and also expected to be an instant entertainer for his owner whenever they need to see him playing basketball..”
I am sure he gets rewarded well.
“Mousie, are you ready to come back and just do your work here on this blog of ours yet?”
Mousie considers the alternative, and he especially isn’t into basketball….
“Okay…” Morguie says with a tone of resignation.
And so it ends the Mousie walk-out…and perhaps, maybe he’ll get an extra biscuit just because…
Things really wouldn’t be the same here without him.
