default Our Carpet Shark recharges his bateries!

Post by GB on 30th August 2011, 1:22 am



Today I spent the morning creeping up on him and tapping his bottom just to watch him leap and cavort with surprised glee. He saw me go into the loo and managed to get in without my seeing him and tapped me on the ankle and then went gambolling all around me in transports of playful sharkness, thrilled he had managed to take the game to me Laughing

I dont know if he is typical of the breed or not but either way, he is SUCH a funny creature loveflag

Personally, I would be seriously concerned if he crept up on me whilst I was in the loo, unless it was cold of course whistle2

But then, its early.

Was looking forward to a good game of weasel tag but he is dirty dishrag limp in his hammock, sound asleep.

Had a dream the other night that I rescued a stranded otter who'd gotten blown in by hurricane. Very strange dream, lots of rain and flooding. Fortunately, we'd only gotten rain of the regular sort IRL. In dream was wondering how I was going to keep a stealth otter in a rental flat. And what would the security deposit penalties be?! LOL

That was some dream lol!

Had a huge laugh the other night at Geo. Mum had bought the kids a large rubber cockroach - four inches long with floppy legs and antenna - and it was left on the floor at bedtime. So mum, hubby and I are watching telly when the carpet shark comes belting out of the kids bedroom, skids round the corner, pelts across the floor and dashes into the gap between the freezer and tv stand/book case unit.

Clenched in his jaws, legs and antenna waving wildly, was a very large rubber cockroach Shocked

laugh We about fell off the couch from laughing laugh

This morning I could hear a rustling in the kitchen. Went in to see what was up and found him dragging a bag of dried beans across the floor, headed for his stash of stolen goods at the other side of hte house.

His names are many but his new one is Theeval the Weeval!

I think he just likes to steal things, the bigger the better from his point of view Laughing His stash is under the bookcase/tv stand so its pretty hard to get at. His cunning plan at work, methinks!
