Sometimes in life, you've gotta speak up if you wanna be heard.
What am I sayin'? ALL THE TIME in life. you've gotta speak up if you wanna be heard, and that's a fact, for sure.
And you CERTAINLY have to speak up to get what you want.
You all know my brother Rushton, right? Well Rushy has this speakin'-up-to-be-heard-and-gettin'-what-ya-want thing down pat.
Why just the other day...
Just the other day, a terrible craiking noise reminiscent of Crows Cawin' in a Cob-less field of Corn was coming from the sunroom, and the peeps were all like, "Who's that? What's that? Is someone in trouble?"
Turned out it was Rushton.
Now before anyone gets their knickers all knotted and twisted up like the peep knittin' with a cheap ball of yarn, you can start untwisting 'em right now. There's no need to worry. Rushy was not hurt. Rushy was just bein'.. Rushy. He had finished his din-dins and wanted to go outside, and...
AND HE WANTED TO GO OUTSIDE NOW.
Well, then, actually, on account of my retelling this here story a couple days later, so then was now, back then.
So anyway, this is a thing of Rushy's now. Rushy has learned that if a kitty squawks loudly enough, a kitty gets whatever said kitty wants.
Most of the time.
A kitty wants a snack? Squawk at the peeps, and a kitty gets a snack.
A kitty wants to go into the garden? Squawk at the peeps, and a kitty gets to go into the garden.
A kitty wants water? Squawk at the peeps, and a kitty gets water.
A kitty wants treats? Squawk at the peeps, and a kitty gets treats.
A kitty wants to borrow a peep's plastic money to do a little on-line shopping at Mouses R Us? Squawk at the peeps, and...
Okay, so that one apparently doesn't work.
Believe me, I KNOW.
On the other paw, maybe my voice isn't grating enough. Maybe I don't have that real craiking talent my brother has. Maybe my voice is too melodic. Maybe my voice isn't annoyingly loud like Rushy's. Maybe...
MAYBE I NEED TO GET RUSHY TO SQUAWK AT THE PEEPS FOR ME, 'BOUT PAYIN' FOR MY ON-LINE SHOPPIN'.
Excuse me, my friends, while I go get Rushy to use his craiking voice so that I can order myself up somethin' nice from Mouses R Us.
