Salon Day II

Fin (jumping on to bathroom counter): Whatcha doing now Mom?

Mom: Well, I just exfoliated, and now I'm going to pluck my eyebrows.

Fin: Thank Cod, we could've featured you on Floofy Friday (chuckles). I'm just gonna curl up in the sink for a nap... Wait you're not using hot wax again are you? (Fin and Mom exchange a horrified look and shudder. Mom shakes her head No) Okay then. (Fin drifts off to sleep to the small yelps as Mom plucks)

Fin (awakened by chin scritches, given with freshly shaped nails): Oh yes Mom, those are nice now. (Fin looks up to see a green-faced stranger hanging over her, frightened she jumps from her sink and runs under the bed). WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY MOTHER!!

Mom: Fin, come out from under there! It's me, Mom. See, it's just a facial mask.

Fin (crawling out from under the bed): Sorry, but it was really scary. (chuckles) Remember the times you were allergic to your masks and you broke out in hives? Wait, you did an allergy test first right?

Mom (looking confused and less than confident) Allergy tests are for wimps... besides I would have thrown those out... right? (tilting head to side) I think I'll wash it off now.

Fin (jumping back on the counter to assist while Mom washes and dries her face): All done now? Cause I'm spent here.

Mom (digging in cabinet): I think I'll try a self-tanner next-

Fin (paws going to mouth in horror): NO! Remember when you looked like an orange zebra?

Mom: Oh I would have thrown that brand out, I think. Here we are. Let's see - Exfoliate first, check, patch test? Patch tests are for wimps!

Fin (jumping from sink and running down the hall): I'M GETTING DAD!

Three-day weekends can be very dangerous friends. I'm so glad she's gone back to work or she might have had ideas about a salon day for me.

That's funny. Why is it the moms think they need to change their appearance when we love them just the way they are?

Pee ess - my mom puts that stuff on her hair too!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

I agree, three day weekends are dangerous!! My mom was thinking of dying her hair another color.... Ha! Ha!... then she discovered she has pinkeye!

Good thing you're around to watch out for her.

Misha said...

Maybe it's because you set such a high standard of beauty in your household?

Owen said...

Dear Fin, thank you so much for your visits, I'm always happy to hear from you, especially this time of year when you're not shedding... :-) By the way, organge zebras, that sounds really exotic !

Cory said...

Good thing my mom was sick. I was able to sit on her and keep her out of trouble or else she might have tried something silly.

MoMo said...

SIF, I am gonna to hide these from SS in case she has any ideas. We have a three day weekend coming up soon.

The Island Cats said...

Haha! Isn't it funny what the humans put themselves through in the name of beauty?? Not like us cats who get by with just a few licks....

Hehehehehe, but still, you're such good help, Fin. We can be happy that we look stunning just with the casual wash now and then. When will they understand that the secret is napping?!

The Whiskeratti said...

Umm... Fin, we think you are right to be cautious!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

That sounds like a very scary weekend!! I hope that doesn't give the PM any ideas. Wait, that bathroom is still in shambles, we are safe! Whew!

Missed you!

Eric and Flynn said...

It's very lucky for your mum that you watch out for her or she could end up looking like a bushy browed orange striped zebra with bumps all over.

It would be so much easier if everbuddy was just cats.

Angus Mhor said...

Can you imagine how much it HURTS to defoliate? Or is that exfoliate? Maybe it's deforestate? I don't know, but whatever it is, it's gotta hurt!

The Kitty Krew said...

Whew, you had a lot to put up with and snoopervise, Fin! Good thing she had you there.

We're glad our Mommy's too lazy to do all that stuff... MOL

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew
