I shall endeavour

Uh-huh, uh-huh...  I shall endeavour to inform the peep.

OH PEEEE-PERRRRRS...

Oohhh..   Look at that.  A nip mouse!  Nice.

What did I want, Peepers?  Hmmm...  I forget.  Couldn't have been very important.

Excuse me, I hear someone at the door.


You again?  Oh yeah.  I shall endeavour to inform the peep.

OH PEEEE-PERRRRRS...

Oohhh...  Look at that.  An open bag of treats!  Nice.

What did I want this time, Peepers?  Hmmm...  I don't remember.  Nothin' important, I should think.

If you'll excuse me, I hear someone at the door.

You're back?  Again?  MOUSES!

OF COURSE I KNOW WHAT ENDEAVOUR MEANS.  MOUSES!

OH PEEEE-PERRRRRS...

Oohhh...  Look at that.  Someone left...

Wait a minute.  Was there somethin' I was supposed to tell the peep?

Hmmm...

HMMM...

I know!  Peepers, I just remembered somethin'.  I just remembered, I'm supposed to tell you somethin'.  No sorry, I'm supposed to endeavour to tell you somethin'.

Oh I have no idea.  No, I have no idea what it is I'm actually supposed to be tellin' you.  But I did remember that I was supposed to be tellin' you somethin'.

Like I said, I don't remember that.

Look Peepers, you should thank your lucky stars I'm REMEMBERIN' I'm supposed to be endeavourin' to tell you whatever-it-is I'm supposed to be endeavourin' to tell you.  Rememberin' what it actually is that I'm supposed to be endeavourin' to tellin' you?  Well that's a totally different matter.

OF COURSE I KNOW WHAT ENDEAVOUR MEANS. MOUSES!

Why the mouses does everyone keep askin' me that?

Now if you'll excuse me again, I believe I hear someone at the door.

WAIT A MINUTE!

I REMEMBER NOW.

Peepers, I am supposed to inform you that the squirrels livin' in the big ol' oak tree at the end of the driveway would appreciate some sunflower seeds and peanuts, if you would be so kind as to put some out for them.

There.  I did more than just endeavour to give you the message, Peepers.  I didn't just try.  I actually did it.

And everyone kept askin' me if I knew what endeavour meant.  MOUSES!

Hmmm...

On the other paw...

On the other paw, I think I was supposed to relay that message last week.  I don't think that was the message I was asked to relay today, at all.

HMMM....

I shall have to put my thinkin' cap on and endeavour to REMEMBER.  Yup, I shall have to endeavour to remember what I was asked to endeavour to tell the peep today, for sure.

But on the OTHER paw...

I do have four, you know.  Paws, I mean.

But as I was sayin'.  On the other paw, I think I've already endeavoured to endeavour enough for one day.  I believe I shall endeavour to remember, tomorrow.

MOUSES!

  2. At least you know the meaning of endeavor. Or rather, endeavour. (US vs CA spelling)

    1. For the life of me, I can't figure out why peeps thought that I didn't. MOUSES!

  3. Hehehe, all that endeavouring sounds just like my peep, for sure. Excepting the bits about putting nuts out for the squirrels, we have more than enough nuts within the Palace, of the peep kind, without encouraging them outside. Mouses!
