Deception

Oh, the lengths that I will go to for some alone time...

I've figured out that when I get home and the canines hear me they go bonkers in the room they're in but when Sweety comes home they don't make a peep. So, I've started stomping my feet really loud and slamming cabinet doors when I get in to fool them.

How ridiculous is that? And I was so proud of myself when I hatched my plan. It is working though.

I came home early today. The crappy feeling just wouldn't go away. If I'm going to feel rotten I'd rather do it in the privacy of my own home.

Sweety should be home soon so I can wad up with him on the couch.

Have I mentioned how much I love our couch? It kicks ass. It's made out of the same leather that is used to make footballs (so basset hound toenails can't tear it. gee, now that i think about it, how effed up is it to let your dog help you decide what your couch is made out of? i digress.) and it has a smush factor that is just right. I bought a little pillow for it yesterday. I'm gonna go lay my melonhead down on it right now.

Now I really miss my couch- we haven't been spending NEARLY enough time together lately. Thanks for reminding me that I need to go home and spend some quality time! :)

If you neglect your couch you'll break it's spirit. Nothing worse than a heartbroken couch.

I'm spending some quality time with my couch right now, and plan on spending some MORE quality time with it tomorrow.
I don't need my couch having abandonment issues.

I'd rather feel rotten at work and save my vacation. I recuperate more quickly when I'm at home. But that may be because home is so much better than work.

Have a great weekend. Do the boys have a game?

RSG - You can never love your couch too much.

MCB - I've used all my vacation/sicktime up so I'm not getting paid.

The last ballgame is tomorrow! Yay!

A football leather couch!?! (And jealousy rears it's ugly head) That's awesome!

It's amazing the things we'll do because our pets.

Nothing like tearing off a nice piece of couch.

What a smart thing to do..the stomping I mean....I understand needing alone time!!! OMG! I love my couch, too, but I love my bed, MORE! I'm a case, what can I say...Hope you feel better very soon, Chickie...

Our dog, Josie, listens for the bus. As soon as she hears it she apparentally goes and sits, looking out the front window. There is no fooling her. Plus, she goes a wee bit ape shit if it's me or my husband coming home.

Hope the couch treated you well...

OOLOTH - I do love my bed more but the dogs would know it was me if I went in there to sleep. So the couch has to do if I'm trying to keep some privacy!

TSXM - I was just glad to get furniture in here that the exwife hadn't sat her skank ass on.

Sasha - You know, now that I think of it, we've never had any action on the couch. Probably because I'm afraid of getting anything on it!

melonhead?

Zube Girl said...

My cats can not have eaten for DAYS (well, okay that's never happened but I'm assuming) and won't make a peep when Zube Boy's around. But, as soon as I appear they are ALL. OVER. MY. SHIT. I'm the feeder, I guess.

Chickie said...

Bo Snagley - I have a very round head. Kind of like a cantaloupe.

Zube Girl - We have one outside cat and she is like that with me too. Sweety's had her for over 10 years and I don't even really care for her but she won't shut up whenever she sees me. Maybe she's trying to tell me to go away.
