don't touch that

No, Peepers.  NO!  DON'T TOUCH THAT.  Don't throw that out.  I'm savin' it for later.

What?

Oh.

Well actually...

Actually, I don't really know.

Hmmm...  Now that I think about it, I have absolutely no idea.  I have no idea what it is, at all.

But I'm STILL savin' it for later.  MOUSES!

'Cause.

'CAUSE.

'Cause uh...

Well...

Well I don't know.  Don't ask such silly questions, Peepers, 'cause I'm tellin' you right here, right now:  You keep askin' silly questions, and you're gonna get silly answers, for sure.  MOUSES!

Because.

Because.

BECAUSE SILLY QUESTIONS BEGET SILLY ANSWERS.  Always have, always will.  That's the way of the world, my peep.  That's the way of the world, and..

Oh.  So you weren't askin' me why you shouldn't ask silly questions, you say.  You were askin' me why I was savin' my uh...  My uh thing I was savin', for later.

Well like I already told you, I'm savin' it for later.

Yes Peepers, that is a proper answer.  I'm savin' it for later, 'cause I wanna save it.  For later.  It makes perfect sense to me.  Not my fault you can't understand how an intricate and highly intelligent mind like mine works.  MOUSES!

No, Peepers.  Like I said before, I don't know what it is.

Well do YOU know what it is?

Then why, pray tell, would you expect ME to know?  Huh?  HUH?  Answer me that, why don't ya.

'Cause I'm the one savin' it, I should be the one who knows what it is, you say?

NAH...  That's nothin' but fiddle-faddle, goobily-goop-da-nincompoop.  I've never heard such stupid ol' moused-up nonsense in my life.  Not even from you.  You make that up all on your own, Peepers?

Never mind answerin' that.  It was what one calls a rhetorical question.

Rhetorical?  Why, it means...

Awww...  Mouses!  Why don't you splurge and treat yourself to a dictionary, Peepers, and stop askin' me stupid questions.  Stop askin' me to define words you don't understand.

So you do understand what rhetorical means.  Then why the mouses were you askin' ME?

That makes no sense, whatsoever, Peepers.  I'm tellin' ya, you're gettin' weirder and weirder by the minute.  You are so not ageing well.

But JUST SO YOU KNOW - 'cause we appear to be gettin' off track, here - you're STILL not to touch that.  Okay?  'Cause I'm still plannin' on savin' it for later, and...

Wait a minute.

Wait a cotton, pickin', mousin' minute.

IT'S GONE.

MOUSES!

Peepers, did you...

No, you couldn't have.  You were right here, talkin' to me, and...

And...

And...

AND...

And while we were talkin', Andy walked past.

And...

And he walked suspiciously close to my uh...  You know.  That thing I was savin', and...

ANDY!  Give that back right now.

'CAUSE I'M SAVIN' IT FOR LATER.

MOUSES!

  2. Oh no, hope you get your item back that you were saving for later. That silly Andy must have taken it. Pretty sneaky of him. Good luck.

  3. Gotta say that's exactly what happens in our house. One of us is saving something and somebody else (Sheldon) takes it. He's a pesky little brofur for sure!

    Hope there was more than one. :)

  4. You mean that Andy pinched the whatever it was that you saving for later! Will he be saving it or later? In which case you could save it from him saving it then you could save it again for later!

  7. Oh Andy must save that thing of yours! He must've rid of it, 'cause if he did you & I know that it would upset the balance in the kitty universe. But surely Andy would understand that?! I think it was more likely the human took it to try and pawn it! Eek! Tummy tickles.
