Magical Monday: 88

Posted on May 7th, 2012 in Stories


“What do you suppose the Blond Duck does all day?” Bitty asked Bear.

Bear looked up from his burrow.  ”You know exactly what she does.  She stares at the white box and taps on it.”

“Precisely.”  Queen Bitty narrowed her eyes.  ”She should be petting me. Or fetching toys I don’t want to catch.”

“The white box is nice.”  Bear rolled over.  ”It’s a good landing pad for fly catching.”

Queen Bitty said nothing.  Catching flies was beneath her.  ”Perhaps I could get rid of the white box.”

Bear cocked his head.  ”Why?  It’s warm.  I like to sit on it.”

“It’s too bumpy.  And it takes too much of her attention.”  Queen Bitty scowled.  ”She should be awaiting my every command, not hunched over the box giggling and tapping about.”  She squinted, eyeing the Blond Duck in her office, who was indeed giggling and typing.  ”She spends too much time as it is dancing and cooking.”

“If you give her less to do, she might want to take more walks.” Bear’s eyes were wide with horror.

“True.”  While Queen Bitty enjoyed greeting her subjects, she preferred to be carried rather than walk.  Twenty minutes was an eternity.

“Or she might give us more baths.”  Bear waffled in alarm.

“I shan’t allow it.”  Queen Bitty’s ears pierced the sky.  ”On the other hand…maybe it’s better if she keeps her white box.”

“We can sleep more.”

“We can.”  Queen Bitty tucked her chin onto Bear’s back.  Curled up in the pile of laundry they had refused to let the Blond Duck put away, they dreamed of laps made of white boxes with tapping keys.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new creature in the Pond mañana!

    Mine is a red box but then, they say dogs are colour-blind. Yes, I think we are all guilty of spending too much time in front of the coloured box but it does warm them up for the dog that needs to recline on something warm xx

    LOL – the threat of a walk or a bath will do it.

    Haha, sitting on the white box is one of my cat’s favorite occupations. She especially loves it when I’m on twitter and can sit on the keys and make super long undecipherable tweets!

    xo Mary Jo

    I love this. It made me giggle. I can picture my two cats Mr. Lump and Bull have this exact conversation. Mr. loves to lay on my laptop and he hates when I am typing on it instead of petting him. He will crawl up onto the keyboard and lay across it when he wants attention and I refuse to give it to him.

    Sunny Days and Starry Nights
