Garage Sale


Fin: Hey Mom, where's my little pillow?

Mommy: What pillow?

Fin: You know, the one on our bed that I like to rest my head on.

Mommy: Oh, I think your Dad sold it at the garage sale yesterday Honey.

Fin: Garage Sale? Why would we sell the garage, it's attached to the house - oh no, we aren't selling our home are we?!

Mommy: No! People come to the garage and buy stuff you don't want anymore. They pay pennies on the dollar, so you can buy new stuff that you'll want to sell off for cheap in a couple of years.

Fin: That seems silly - plus I loved my pillow!

Mommy: Sorry sweetie, Daddy just wandered through the house grabbing things to sell, and I didn't realize he took your pillow. Fin where are you going?

Fin: (Beginning a desperate search) Looking for all my Mice!!

Mommy: Don't worry, no one is going to want to buy cat-spit covered mice.

Fin: (Horrified) Mom! My mice are precious.

Mommy: Of course they are. How about we get you a present at Petsmart to make up for selling your pillow?

Fin: Okay!! I'll make you up a list!

  2. We're glad your mousies are safe. Be sure to pick out something good in place of the pillow.

  3. Wow, not even your precious pillow was safe. I might buy a cat spit covered mouse though...good thing yours were not sold. Make sure your Petsmart list is nice and long!!!

  4. I bet your mom made a fortune when she sold your pillow, because it had been used by a major internet celebrity. I think it is safe to say that your shopping list for Petsmart should be very long to make up for it.

  13. It SHOULD BE a very LONG list, and your Daddy should be banned from selling things. He exercised very poor judgement selling your pillow. ~S,S,C & F

  19. Bad, bad of your daddy to sell your pillow! I agree with others, hide your mousies somewhere safe. *looks around for purrents, then whispers* Ours are under the couch, but don't tell!

    Oh, wow, WEIRD! The "word" to type in is "saling"!!!!!! You REALLY better hide your mousies!

  20. My Mom and the guy with gray hair and I beard who lives here don't do the garage sale thing anymore. They donate all the old stuff to a place called Good Will. (I don't know how good Will is, but he must be good since they give him all our old stuff.) Anyhow, Mom knows not to take my stuff and besides, she says in the condition it's in most times, no one else would want it. Hmmrph, what does she mean by THAT?

  22. If I ever saw any mousies in a garage sale I would snatch them right up! And if they were your mousies, Fin, I would buy them and then give them back to you straight away!
