I ( Shiver) tend to be on the shy side and even though I can be quite anxious, I can also be a little wild at times! I know that's hard to believe, but it's true! Just take this story for instance.
One day Mama got mad at me for chewing up a stuffie. It wasn't so much that I chewed it up, it was more that I made a mess with the insides. I got them everywhere! She said that I should be more careful with my toys and to learn to clean up after myself. I'm pretty sure she said a few HBO words too, but I quit listening after awhile. All that yelling was making me anxious. I really thought she'd appreciate seeing how much fun I had with the stuffie, so I'd made sure to spread it the guts around the house. Just when Mama thought she had it all cleaned up, she'd go into another room and find a little bit more. I thought she'd never stop yelling.
After finally getting it all cleaned up, Mama said we should go outside and play in the back yard for awhile. She let us out and then went back in the house to get dinner started. Chico and I wandered around the yard for a bit before I discoverd that someone had left the gate open. FREEDOM!!!
We walked calmly through the gate and down the street. As we walked, a UPS truck pulled up along side us and we spied the driver going up to a house to deliver a package. Chico pointed out that the truck was still running, so in we hopped! Chico insisted that he should be the one to drive since he noticed it first, but he couldn't reach the pedals.
We drove down the street a ways with the UPS guy chasing and yelling at us. Boy, was he mad! We drove around town for a bit, then decided to go check what was happening at the local Blogville Bar. We saw several of our furiends there, so we hung out for awhile drinking, dancing, and having a good time.
Unfortunately, the UPS guy had called the Blogville PD on us. The cops walked in and Chico and I knew we were in some serious trouble! We had to call Mama to come bail us out of jail. Boy, was she mad - even madder than before! Since it was the first time we ever got into any legal trouble, the cops were kind enough to let us go. The UPS guy didn't want to press charges since they stop at our house so often delivering our Chewy.com goodies for us to review. The police said that having to go home with Mama was punishment enough, since she was so furious with us.
As much fun as that evening was, we learned our lesson. Chico and I had to do lots of chores around the house for a very long time to make up for our misbehavin'. Mama stays out with us whenever we go out into the back yard now so that we can't escape again.
