I 'Bout Had a Heart Attack
Ah, my wife, my wife!
Well, last night I was pretty well zapped and looking forward to a good night's sleep. So I prepare myself and get ready for 40 winks.
I ought to tell you we have a large, very furry, buff-colored cat we call "Lord Buffington". Well, lately he's discovered my bed's a pretty nice place for a cat,too, though I don't allow him to remain in my room at night, because he'll get me up too early in the morning... Well, enough about Buff.
So I go to climb into the bed and spot *GASP* 5 bloated TICKS! (I'm coming, Elizabeth...). [Quote from Redd Foxx on Sanford & Son.]
I was so freaked out. So I scooped 'em up to look at 'em in the light. Pshew! They're not ticks. What then, bed bugs? Double pshew!! No. They were rather large, hard seeds. Or so I thought.
Along with the rest of the juicy conversation my wife and I had this morning, I told her of the "bugs".
She just started laughing. Imagine the nerve. Laughing. Then she uttered the words: "I'm sorry. I put out a few pieces of dry cat food for Buff. I forgot to see if he'd eaten them."
"Oh, you're going to the moon, Alice. You're going to the moon." [Quote from Ralph Kramden to his wife Alice on The Honeymooners .]
