Cambridge's Corner

(I decided we all need more of Cambridge's Corner around here, so here she goes.)

How to Drive Your Mom Nuts, Part 327

My mom is weird. She went to work yesterday without her usual stuff - she left her purse, wallet, cell phone, and car keys at home. I thought she was loosing her mind on a Monday morning, but apparently it was on purpose so that she'd be forced to run the 3.44 miles home as a work out. Anyway, when she got home she was all red and sweaty and smelled funny, which got me a little worked up. I was like, "Hi Mom Hi Mom Hi Mom" but she wasn't paying me any attention because she was too concerned about getting hydrated, whatever that means. So I decided to get back at her - that's how I am. After she stripped out of her sweaty clothes and got into the shower, I decided to give her a little payback, Cambie style. As she pulled the curtain shut, I stuck my nose into the bathroom trash can and dug out my favorite bathroom trash morsel. You guessed it, dental floss. Used dental floss. Ha! This really sicks Mom out. Anyway, she saw me and lunged out of the shower for me, so I hurried and snarfed up the floss and took off for the living room. Ha ha! Look at naked Mom in front of all the windows where weird neighbors walk their dogs! Next I ran into the dining room where the biggest window of all is. She had to dive under the dining room table to grab me and pull out the tiny bit of floss left hanging outside of my mouth. Dang it! I had almost eaten the whole thing before she got me. Better luck next time...

Peace out,
