music to my ears


I'm here!  I'm here!  What have you got there, Peepers?

What do you MEAN it's not what I think?  You mean those aren't treats?

It's wrappin' paper, you say?

But...

But...

Awww...  MOUSES!

Stupid wrappin' paper sounds just like a package of treats.

I'm here!  I'm here!  What have you got there, Peepers?

What do you MEAN it's not what I think?  You mean those aren't treats, either?

It's the plastic stuff from the inside of a box of candies, you say?

But...

But...

Awww...  MOUSES!

Stupid box of candy plastic stuff sounds just like a package of treats.

                           **********

I'm here!  I'M HERE!  What have you got there, Peepers?

What do you MEAN it's not what I think?  You mean THOSE aren't treats, EITHER?

It's an empty package of frozen veggies that you're puttin' into recycling, you say?

But...

But...

Awww...  MOUSES!

Stupid empty packaging from STUPID OL' DISGUSTIN' VEGGIES sounds just like a package of treats.

I'm tellin' ya, it's like the peep is TRYIN' to deceive me.  She has been doin' stuff with stupid stuff ALL MORNIN' LONG.  Stuff that has sounded like the opening of packages of treats.  And it's just not right, you know?  MY EARS have been hearin' treats.  At least they thought they were hearin' treats, and they went and told my tummy and everythin', AND NOW my tummy is complainin' due to a TOTAL LACK of the treats.

MOUSES!

What?  WHAT?  What, pray tell, is that, that I hear?  That sound...  That sound that is music to my ears.

Do I risk it once more, my friends?

Hmmm...

Yes, I must.  I Must. Take. The Risk. For sure.

I'm here!  I'M HERE!  What have you got there, Peepers?

What do you MEAN it's...

Oh.

Really?

TRULY?

You're not playin' mean tricks on me again, are you Peepers?  You're not just makin' noises meant to deceive?

You mean, what I'm hearin' really is what I think it is?

Hear that, tummy?  Hear that good news?

WE'RE GETTIN' TREATS.

Mmmm....

Now THAT is music to my ears.

Not to mention my tummy, too.

MOUSES!
