A Funny Thing Happened, Part 2

I may look serious but I’m trying to stifle a giggle.

Last Saturday I hinted that the peeps had pulled another good one; aka another stupid human trick. It gives me great pleasure to give you the 411. I think there’s a double standard in place cos whenever I do something, there’s always film footage but there’s never film footage when they muck up.

The other night I told the peeps to order out some Chinese food for dinner. They wouldn’t listen and now I have a funny blog post for you. Trust me, they weren’t laughing.

TW decided to make pierogies. Not from scratch, mind you, but outta a box. After they were boiled—TW didn’t feel like lighting the oven—it was time to strain out the water. TW was having trouble holding the pot full of water with one hand cos it was heavy for her. I may have already mentioned she doesn’t own a proper strainer. Here’s where Pop—and trouble—come in. Pop got the brilliant idea that he could help.

A rare pic of me in the kitchen standing near the sink.
Pop grabs the glass lid with one hand—or did he?? TW then turns the pot over while presuming he had a grip on the lid. She never axed him. Heh heh. Do you see where this is going?

CRASH!!! That’s the glass lid crashing into the sink along with most of the pierogies. HAH! I thought. NOW they’re gonna call for Chinese food as the blame game started. Pop was muttering HBO words while TW was practically bawling looking at their main course in the sink.

Cooler heads prevailed (for once). Did they finally give in and call Number One Chinese Food? No, they cooked up another batch. Pierogies were just on sale at the supermarket so apparently the freezer was well stocked with them. This time, she spooned the them out into a separate plate. My peeps take great delight in eating stuff that doesn’t appeal to me.

Of course the moral of this post is that humans should always listen to their cats. Ordering out means no muss, no fuss and a well-satiated cat.

That's the saddest picture in the world CK--there you are looking soooooo needy, right there in the KITCHEN for Cod's sake, and yet: NO FOOD BOWL for the kitty. Phfft. Humans: Can't live with them, can't live without th...... Wait--are we really SURE of that? XOXOXOX

MOL - oh no! Tell TW not to feel too bad because I've done this sort of thing more times than I can remember even with a proper strainer... Most recently I remember missing the strainer and dumping half my spaghetti noodles in the sink =/ And there was a time when I didn't have a proper strainer either... It's not easy!

I didn't know what pierogies were so I got mum to google it for me. I agree with you CK, I would prefer the Chinese takeaway.

Austin Towers said...

Fur Everywhere said...

Wow, CK, they really should have listened to you! Maybe this incident will have taught them a lesson :)

Brian said...

Sometimes humans can be sooooo slow to catch on.

Tamago said...

LOL they really should have listened to you! Though, I've done something same - let food escape into the sink. I totally agree, ordering would mean no muss, no fuss and happy kitty :-)

Kitties Blue said...

Mom had heard of pierogies but didn't really know what they were so googled them. She says she's with you CK...Chinese food would have been way better. Glad no one was physically injured. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We agree. Even Ashton isn't a fan of pierogies, and she eats almost everything.

Not only should they have listened to you and ordered Chinese, they should also invest in a strainer! :-)
