We told you before we left on our BIG EASTERN ADVENTURE that we would report the GOOD and the BAD of our trip… and today the four of us held our first day of OPEN COURT to determine Daddy’s “guilt” or “innocence.” We are always the judges in the TRAVEL CASES, just so you know. So… here are the facts. You decide:
Mummy fixed herself a cup of tea this morning and left ONE TEASPOON on the tiny kitchen counter. A short while later, Daddy walked in and said it was time for Addie Mae’s medicine, which consists of one pill buried in a spoonful of a special canned dog food. Mummy was reading a tour book so didn’t pay attention to all of this. It was almost time to leave and Mummy said she wanted one more cup of tea but when she went to add her sweetener and cream, her teaspoon was GONE! She saw a spoon sitting in a cup of water in the sink and started to give it a quick rinse when she noticed a greasy slime all over the spoon… DOG FOOD! She turned to Daddy and asked, “Did you use my teaspoon to dig out that dog food?” And his response was: No. Now… it does not take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Mummy and Daddy are the ONLY TWO PEOPLE staying in this trailer and the four of us cannot reach the counter. She said, “This is not the Spanish Inquisition… now it is just the principle of the thing… and I want you to tell me if you used my spoon for the dog food!!!” Again he said NO. This was just incredible. Even as little dogs of the jury we were in shock. “ There was a spoon on the counter, now it is gone, and there is one in the sink with dog food on it… all I want you to do is tell the truth. Just say ‘sorry… yes I did it.’ It is not worth lying over. “ At this point all he would say was, “I guess I did it.” Mummy said, “You GUESS ???? you did it? Just say I. DID. IT. “ But he refused to say it. At this point Mummy just threw up her hands and said that Daddy had given her a headache and the day hadn’t even started. We VERY QUICKLY found Daddy GUILTY AS CHARGED but didn’t really know what to do with him because he DOES give us lots of snacks and cuddles… and he drives the AIRSTREAM… so we let him off with a WARNING. This time. ?
