TOY box issues and such
I have 3 large toy boxes. One upstairs, one downstairs and one outside. The one outside has my pool toys and Frisbees and stuff I only see when I go out. The one upstairs is very big and the one downstairs is overstuffed. I like playing toy drop. It works like this. You stand on the top of the steps and drop the toys one at the time from the upstairs toy box to downstairs. I love making the landing a carpet of toys! But... that is a strange upsetting trigger for the 2leggeds. Something about danger and not fair and lots of angry sounds which make no sense. Momma asks me if I expect her to fly. ???? I don't. Can she fly??? What does that have to do with my carpet of toys?
With Adam I played "no you don't". He took the Wendy and the JD out to the back yard and left me inside. [ All this because I was busy when he called us. - I am soooo rolling my eyes and shaking my head] Well, what's a girl to do to make a point? For every minute I was waiting to go out I ... took out a toy or two.I guess it was a very long wait... because when he finally came in to get me...the toy box downstairs was empty and... I was heading upstairs. He was NOT happy. They are MY TOYS. I took them all out of my toy box. What was his problem????
Anyway, while he did help me put the stuff away, some toys... "escaped" our efforts. I am talking about you pink monkey....[ always a trouble giver that one...]
Two minutes into her homecoming and of course momma had to ask about the toys. Why pink monkey and ... OK... a... few others had "taken up residence" under the wing chair... [Momma is OCD about neatness. I am not sure what OCD is, but I hear she is]
Yes- I put the toys away. Momma "fixed" my efforts. [OCD]. She said toy salad looks messy.
Salad? Is that an insult? Oh boy.... humans... confusing and complicated.
BTW, Adam made a priceless face when he finally came and got me. He looked around and his mouth dropped open and his eyes got big and he could not speak. It was AWSOME!!!!
[mhhh note to moi. Do that again and see if you can duplicate reaction.]
I love toys!
