His Highness Deigns to Come In... For a Minute.

Zaphy came to the window to let me know that he wanted inside.  So I went downstairs and called so he would know the door was open.  "Yawn," Zaphy went, not moving from the window, "I'm not sure if I want to jump the fence and come in now."  ::sigh::  "Zaphoid!  Here, kit, kit, kit!!  Zaphy!!  Zaphoid Beeblebrox!!"  ::grrrrrrr::  I went and opened the fence gate.  "Zaphoid, do you want in??  Come here right this minute!!"  Zaphoid turned around, "Oh.  You opened the gate.  I suppose I could deign to come in now."  So he jumped down and sauntered over to come out of the fenced area.

Then he went over to my van and stopped.  ::sigh::  I went over and opened the door.  "Well??  Are you going to come in now?"  He looked at the door.  "Hmmmm," he went, "In.  Inside.  Yes.  I was going to come inside, wasn't I."  ::roll eyes::  Zaphy came inside as Star purrupted at me.  "Yes, Star, it's okay to go out."  Star took my word for it and went out as Zaph came in.  I didn't think too much of it and went to put on my jacket to go outside for one of my short walks.  "Mom??  Mom??  Are you going outside?  I need to go outside!!"  ::face:palm::  His Highness, Zaphoid, wanted out again.

And, as their Royal Highnesses' do, Zaphoid came in when I did.  He jumped up onto the bed, "Mooooom!  Moooooom!  Where is my bruuuuuuush???  I need bruuuuuushing!!!"  So, of course, I had to find his brush and give him a good brushing.  Now he is happily napping at my feet.

In other news, I've asked my husband to email me the pictures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Horde that he has on his phone so that I can put them up on the blog.  There is no telling how long it will take!  Keep your fingers & paws crossed!!
