The Case of THE MISSING SPOON

July 3, 2019

.

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. ?

Mummy said she will buy ome plastic spoons that he can throw away… although she has been trying to cut back on her use of disposable platic. Maybe just a DEDICATED SPOON but he might not look for it. ???

Sounds guilty.. but are the treats considered as jury tampering??? ?? Daddy’s do some crazy stuff, but we usually forgive them. But, he should have said oooops! I did! Maybe Mummy can get a special spoon for her tea stuff? ?

When you see a dollar store, pick up a spoon there to use for the doggie food. Then you will know IT is for said food. Since daddy is doing the driving, I guess there will be no decision on this case.

I’m ALL for Mummy getting a special spoon………. maybe one with a little ELEPHANT on it at Mr. Ed’s??? I’m SURE they are going to have one in the tea pot shop! Only problem is that will be on your way home…. LOL Still I think it would be nice to have a special spoon with an elephant it can always be saved for the next adventure and a way to remember your visit at such a magical place! and Dad’s are ALWAYS guilty even when they aren’t LOL

Daddy was not sure which argument he could win against Mummy better, The argument about whether or not he DID use the spoon, or the argument as to , “WHY” he used the spoon, considering there was likely another spoon within 6 inches of where he stole Mummys’ to begin with!

So while on your travels, perhaps you might find a spoon with like a doggie face on the end…
Or better yet… one of those souvenir spoons you see…. dedicate one for doggie food spoon and perhaps another for human tea spoon…
Problem solved…
Cut “daddy some slack”… he’s the “tour driver” for this adventure.?????

Mummy needs to go shopping for a special spoon for her tea. The shopping would be fun and she does need a special spoon easily identifiable by Daddy as her TEA. Spoon

In all honesty, the spoon was just laying on the counter, unknow if it was used or not, so why not use it for doggie food. I had to laugh when I read your daily story – so cute, so unexpected and really such a little issue. Gotta love daddy, he used your spoon unknowingly – don’t make him stay in the dog house for long – he might leave without you – HUGS

As a nonpartisan bystander, this seems to me as a misdemeanor offense so Daddy should get off with a warning and community service (driving the airstream seems appropriate). Case closed. Have a fun trip. Love traveling with you.

Dear sweet Millie,

I’m so glad you let your Daddy off the hook for this offense…he’s a very nice man and a good Daddy to you four girls. You know how men are…they just don’t think things through the way we do, right? Maybe he will learn something from this experience. And if he doesn’t, well…there are always second and third chances, oui?

Thank you for bringing a smile to my face today! I’m with Mommy: too many people make such fake posts. Everything is all sweetness and light. And we all know it doesn’t work that way. I like Mommy’s way, that you can disagree and move on and still get along. That’s what makes marriages work! Love you all. Safe travels on your journey! Kisses!
