Saturdays with Sir Poops-A-Lot: Waking Up Late

IMG_0059 SPAL: Mummsy woke up real late this morning. It’s not like her to do that.

HB: Yeah. She’s up by 5:30-6 am. She didn’t get us outside until about 9 this morning. What’s up with that?IMG_0063

SPAL: Well, Tuesday on her other day off she had a hard time getting up and going. She didn’t get up as late like she did today.

HB: She even watched an hour of a movie this morning and now she’s watching The Great Muppet Caper.

SPAL: Miss Piggy and Kermit are trying to act like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. That’s really strange to see.

IMG_0084HB: Looks more like someone’s trying to swoon Miss Piggy away from Kermit to me.

SPAL: You’re sooo stupid.

HB: You’re suuuuch a pansy!

SPAL: Whatever.***he shakes his head***How are we going to help Mummsy today. She doesn’t want to get out of bed.IMG_0073 She’s got writing and editing to do for herself and others today.

HB: But I like it when she hangs out in bed. It’s the best thing ever. Just lying around. Sleeping. Sniffing. Sleeping some more. Watching T.V. Sleep some more. Sniff some more. And repeat.

SPAL: But Mummsy’s got a lot to do today and we have to help her. Remember she’s got laundry, cleaning, and grocery shopping to do, too.

IMG_0080HB: What’s more important than lounging around in a nice fluffy bed all day. It’s her day off.

SPAL: But it’s a beautiful day out.  The sky is blue. Birds are flying.IMG_0074

HB: Which reminds me. Where’s breakfast?

SPAL: You missed it. I was starving and couldn’t help myself. I mean you were lounging around upstairs with Mummsy. So I helped myself to your bowl and mine.


HB: I’ll let you get away with it this time but the next time I’ll bite your butt and steal all your treats. And at night, I’ll head butt you off No-No’s bed.

SPAL: Whatever, stupid. We still need to figure out how to make Mummsy feel better.

HB: You sure you want to do that?

SPAL: Why do you say that?

HB: I hear she plans on putting you into the Great White Watery Abyss of Torture today.


SPAL: Really?

HB: Yeah. Really.

SPAL: ***swallows a lump*** and cowers into a corner. IMG_0082

HB: You’re such a pansy. ****he belly laughs***

SPAL: You’re stupid. Taking delight in another’s demise. How could you be so insensitive?

HB: It’s a form of brotherly love. If I were you, I’d beg No-No to hide you out in her room somewhere. There’s lots of great piles and stuff to hide in. ***he walks away, smirking***

SPAL: Where are you going? You have to help me! SAVE ME!

HB: Not in your life, pansy-boy. You’d do yourself a favor if you kept Mummsy in bed. That’s where I’m going. Where it’s cozy and safe and I can dream about your torture.

SPAL: But---

HB: ***continues to walk the other direction***


  1. Hey guys:

    You're missing question marks where needed. Guess I'm going to have to give you a lesson on punctuation.


  2. Mummsy better be taking care of herself. She has a lot of people out here in cyberspace who care about her, buys.

  3. Yes, Mummsy needs her rest, boys! After all, there really is nothing more important then lounging about in a nice bed all day....

    I do love that term the Great White Watery Abyss of Torture...

  4. Sounds like Poopsie is almost back to his old self! Yeah!!

  5. @Ms. Norma: We'll take care good care of her.

    @Sir Wills: We don't even like the sound of the White Watery Abyss of Torture.

    @Evie: Yes. Sir Poops is almost himslef again but he's still pooing on the floors. Solid ones.

  6. I agree with Norma...let mummsy have her rest...and we do care about you two as well, but mummsy is very important to all of us...!!!

    Good luck in the bathtub!!!

  7. I know, it's not your favourite spot, guys, but the Great White Watery Abyss of Torture is good for you.

  8. Well... better solid ones than ishy soupy ones, right?

    Speaking of baths...I've had my nap, so I guess off I go!

  9. Glad Sir Poops is feeling mostly better. Hope Mummsy got to do what she needed to do today (even if it meant doing nothing!).

  10. @Beth: Right now, Mummsy's in bed working on someone else's chapters. She's kind of resting.
    And I survived the Great White Watery Abyss of Torture again.

    @Sir Wills: Mummsy says the same thing.

    @Lorelei: Naps are good. Baths....

    @Laura: Yup. I'm feeling mush better but I'm off dish duty. I haven't done one since I got sick.

  11. Love the "Great White Watery Abyss of Torture."

  12. @Tonja: It seems that everyone else does too.

  13. Lol, I love reading these. That is a great line about the Great White Watery Abyss of Torture - nicely done. I hope you feel better soon!

  14. Every Mumsy needs a day to sleep in.


  15. @Kimberly: Me, too. Thank you. Fatigue gets in the way.

    @Joyce: I could use a whole week in bed.

  16. Gave me a smile this morning :) Thanks for that! Sleeping is wonderful. And so is the Great Muppet Caper!

  17. lol, these always bring a smile to my face.

  18. @Sarah and Lynda: We're always happy to make you smile.

  19. I love reading the conversations these two have. ;)

  20. Shelly, here's wishing you better energy. Of course, those two seem like they can run the house pretty well by themselves. Just too cute.

    1. Thanks, Donna. I know Hair Ball believes he rules to house. He's the boss of everything.


Let me know what you think.
