Mommy "Be's a Tective"

It's another adventurous day in Mommy Land, where trouble is brewing thanks to my nemesis, Hell Hound. The princess approaches me in the garden, out of breath. "Mommy, Mommy! We have to be tectives. Hell Hound swiped Cookie Monster! You bring your shovel, and I'll use my tective sploring device. Follow ME!"

Reader, I know you remember "Duck" and his dramatic rescue a few posts ago. Unfortunately for this high-profile celebrity stuffed toy, I'm afraid it may be too late. Cookie Monster was last seen this morning on the foot of baby Bigfoot's big boy bed, sprawled face down, resting comfortably. It seems that Hell Hound, while wandering the house looking for something evil to do, passed baby brother's room where she discovered the victim, whom she has been stalking for several months, within reach on the toddler bed.

Next thing I know I'm running through the yard behind the princess, shovel in hand, looking for anything blue and furry. This is actually a normal day in the life of this stay-at-home mom. It's an odd, and sometimes "ri-dick-oo-lous" job, but highly important, none-the-less. Grabbing the camera from the kitchen table, I decide to pressure the beast Paparazzi style, but she nearly eats it, citing her right to an attorney.

After three grueling minutes of searching for poor Cookie, the princess and I are faced with a hard choice: keep looking, or go and eat lunch. We choose the peanut butter and jelly.

Will Cookie Monster ever be found? Only Hell Hound knows.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
