I know!!! You still wait for news from our Galapagos trip. But current events push themselves to the fore.
It´s already T-time for everybody who is part of the „Y is for yellow“ community and it seems that we have not a moment too soon a tremendously tricky time in our fairy tale flatshare. We just got the wonderful news, that Gourmandinet will return in about two days time from his trip around the fairy talers world. Last night he twittered that he would try to take the next available DHL flight he could get on the German Unification Day, we celebrate today. I am not sure, that DHL will welcome him on board on this date, but never mind. It even gives us some more time to get prepared.
I told Cindy about his upcoming arrival and suggested throwing a welcome party for him. But she disapproved of my ideas and threw a tremendous tantrum instead. She got all worked up about Gourmandinet and his thirty month trip. I tried to gain a foothold and adduce some weighty arguments, what made me happy about his return. But she cut me short and rattled off endless points, why Gourmandinet shouldn´t live with us again. She rehashed old stories that Gourmandinet once had forgotten taking out the trash and other odd stuff. I was quite shocked, how she was mocking him and his trip. What was going on? We all know, that Cindy is NOT a remarkably quiet person. But this fit of temper was far too much.
Then she started sniffing. What was that? She never had done something like that before. Did she really want to put out all the stops and start crying? NO!!!! Instead Cindy capped it by taking my handpainted welcoming banner and breaking it in two. That made me gasp and run out of words. She was out of control. I sent her to her room. She threw the banner around the kitchen and huffed off.I can tell, by now the neighborhood is well informed about Gourmandinets arrival.
I sat down at the kitchen table with a tea. A nice cuppa always helps sorting thoughts. At the moment I only had a hunch of what was going on. Could it be true, that Cindy still was influenced by a far away election debate? Oh my!!!!! That was it!!!! We would need to find a better entertainment for October 9 or otherwise the „Pre Election mock disorder (PEMD)“ would drive us crazy.
Any leisure time tip handy?????
