So yesterday morning I was sitting at my desk wrapping up a call with my Sis when Greyson decided he had to be involved.
He was into everything, and each time he found a new treasure to investigate I'd redirect him. He went up otter-style on his back legs to check out what was on the shelves above my desk. I thought I had a moment before I had to
He leaped for the shelf, missed, and crashed to the first shelf. Things happened pretty quick and either his back paw or the votive holder started the chain reaction that followed.
Suddenly I see the tsunami from the glass of ice tea on my desk headed straight for me. Almost a full glass shooting straight at my person in slow-mo. I was drenched from head to foot! Ice tea in my hair, my eyes (behind my glasses - you'd have thought they would shielded me), my shirt and pants, and even the wall behind me and floor in between.
Naturally I yelled out some curse words, who wouldn't, and Greyson ran from the room.
He proceeded to give me the stink eye for the rest of the day, as if I was the one who caused the trouble. Today he has been suspicious of my actions, and only when he was lonesome in the afternoon did he return to nap, under the desk.
Typical cat reaction, to cause the problem and then steer clear of the human like s/he can't be trusted. LOL.ReplyDelete
I can almost see it all unfold in my mind, don't envy you the clean up you had to do. :-p
Too bad someone wasn't filming this - it could have become viral on YouTube!ReplyDelete
Of course it was your fault! It's always the human's fault.ReplyDelete
You must have made him miss the shelf and crash down on the one below, so of course it was your fault.ReplyDelete
Nothing like a little spot of tea to start your day MOL!ReplyDelete
It's always the hoomins fault!! and it must be in the stars lately, too. A lot of it going around.... MOL.ReplyDelete

darned iced tea glasses - getting everyone in trouble :)ReplyDelete
Funny how they have long memories :)ReplyDelete
um, of course it was your fault His best laid plans went awry, it couldn't have possibly been his fault..ReplyDelete
At our house, that glass of tea would have been all over Mom's keyboard 'cause that is just how things roll. Astrid likes to leap from counter to counter in the kitchen which wreaks lots of havoc. Glad Greyson is finally over his fright. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
Of course it was your fault, humans are so clumsy ! A cat would never cause such a mess ! PurrsReplyDelete
Ha ha ha! Of COURSE it's your fault...you put the iced tea on the desk, right?ReplyDelete
Cats sure get busy when you're on the phone. So naturally it was all your fault cause he wasn't getting your full attention.ReplyDelete
We're very glad you and your HBO word weren't on a work conference call. We're glad everyone survived the mini-tsunami.ReplyDelete
Cats have a hard time looking innocent, so the obvious thing is to blame the human. I am not sure which is worse.ReplyDelete
