Epic Mikalogue II
Gareth: Is that...?
Gareth: Mika, is that cat we call The Tub back in the house?
Mika: Is. Gonna duff him up!
The Tub: Oh no oh no oh no...
The Tub: Catflap, open! Our hero needs egress!
Mika: You in Mika's house! Mika disapproves.
Gareth: Okay, Tub, I'd better open the door and let you out...
The Tub: Aaggghh! Do not hurt our hero! Escape to higher ground is the only hope!
Gareth: Hey, don't go upstairs, I'm trying to help you.
Mika: Ha! Nah-nah nah-nah nah-nah, my Daddy's gonna pound you...
Gareth: There isn't going to be any pounding. Come on, Tub, let's go.
The Tub: Precarious is the hiding place, and danger looms all around...
Gareth: Get out from under the spare bed.
The Tub: Aagghh! Flee!
Mika: Pow-pow! Take that!
Gareth: Puss, I'm just going to open the door for you. Calm down.
The Tub: Oh no! The giant approaches!
Mika: Gonna kick your butt, too.
The Tub: Fly for the hills!
Gareth: Don't go upstairs agai - oh bugger.
Mika: Get him!
Gareth: Kit? Sorry to wake you, but I need your help.
Gareth: The Tub's come in through the one-way catflap again, and every time I try to let him out he runs upstairs. Could you come sit on the stairs and head him off if he tries again?
Kit: Mmph. Okay.
The Tub: Secret and silent our hero preserves his safety...
Gareth: See, there he is behind the table. We just need to get him out.
Kit: You know, he's not as big as we used to think, is he? Mika used to be tiny compared with him.
Gareth: Yeah, he's just fatter. But he's not that big really. Come on, puss puss puss...
Mika: Mika the mighty tracks him down for you, Daddy! Gonna hunt him! Cannot hide for ever, Tub!
Gareth: Puss puss puss ... come on, good boy...
The Tub: Beguiling sounds, but our hero must be wary.
Gareth: Puss puss puss...
The Tub: ...And yet, cat cannot live alone. What stout heart can harden itself for ever against the call of love?
Gareth: Puss puss puss...
The Tub: You not gonna hurt our hero?
The Tub: Promise?
Gareth: Promise. That's a good boy.
The Tub: Hm. The giant strokes our hero. Maybe it's safe to creep out - aha, an open door! Our hero tastes freedom!
Mika: And stay out!
Kit: Gosh, Mika's grown a lot.
Mika: Now feed! Feeeed! Is breakfast time!
Gareth: Okay, you're right, Mikatude. I'll get some kibble.
Mika: Mika showed him, huh?
Gareth: Yes, sweetie, you're very big and clever.
Mika: Goway, is eating.
The poor Tub. Perhaps an entente cordiale could be reached? (not, of course, to include any sharing of kibble.)Post a Comment
And now I'm wondering-- does anything else ever come in through that cat flap? This epic could become positively hair-raising, or fur-raising. There are worse things than Tubs in this world, maybe even in your garden.
Verification word: micandpu.
Uh, Mika Can Destroy Portly Usurpers?
