THE ADVENTURES OF PERIWINKLE & STINKY: PART LII

Mad Hatter’s Day HiJinx

Mad Hatter's Day

 

Stinky sits quietly but impatiently by the teleportation tunnel. He wants to jump up and down, but his mom is watching him closely, and he doesn’t want to get in trouble. He has not been eating well, which means he hasn’t been getting all his meds. His mom is worried he will get too excited and the inevitable will happen. She does not want Stinky to have a seizure in front of Periwinkle and frighten her. He’s pretty sure he will be okay after having a seizure last night, but he hasn’t totally recovered and is tired. So, he holds his excitement inside.

Finally, Periwinkle arrives. She tumbles out of the tunnel with the usual whoosh right into Stinky’s paws. Periwinkle can see immediately that something is wrong. She gives Stinky a big hug and says, “You look really unhappy today. Didn’t you want me to come?”

Stinky hugs her back and replies, “Of course, I wanted you to come. Tuesday is always my favorite day of the week, as we get to be together. It is just that my mom won’t let us do anything fun or exciting.”

Periwinkle replies, “Don’t you know by now that the only thing I care about is being together? We don’t have to do anything but hold paws and chat.”

Stinky sighs heavily and tells her that what he has planned amounts to just slightly more than that, and he hands her an elaborate hat.

“Stinky, this is so gorgeous,” gushes Periwinkle. “Should I put it on?”

Stinky nods, “yes,” as he dons an equally elaborate hat and explains to Periwinkle that today is Mad Hatter’s Day, named for the character in Alice and Wonderland.

Periwinkle asks, “Are we going to have a Mad Hatter’s Day tea party?”

Prepare to Have Your Funny Bones Tickled

“Nope. As we already had a tea party adventure, we are going to celebrate it by wearing our top hats and engaging in silly fun. We are going to tell Mad Hatter and Alice in Wonderland-themed jokes. Mom said we can nibble on some nip and Temptations while we do it, so let’s head outside to our usual picnic spot. Maybe, we can give our readers a few chuckles. ”

 

Mad Hatter's Day

 

“How are we going to do this, Stinky?”

“I had Mom download some jokes from the internet, and we can take turns telling them.”

“Can I go first?” asks Periwinkle, as she picks up the printout.

P: “What’s the Mad Hatter’s favorite tea? Insani-TEA!

“Tee hee, that is funny,” chuckles Stinky. “My turn.”

S: “How did the Cheshire cat become so wise? He always reads the mews!

P: “Why doesn’t the Queen of Hearts go to the Mad Hatter’s tea parties? He doesn’t serve royal-TEA!

S: “What does the Cheshire cat say when he is disappearing? Get meow’t of here!

“Do you think our readers are chuckling?” asks Periwinkle.

“Gosh, I hope so ’cause this is seeming pretty lame. Let’s each just tell one more,” replies Stinky.

S: “What do you call the Mad Hatter when he’s calmed down? The Hatter! Well, that one is just dumb,” adds Stinky.

P: “Why did Alice ignore the Cheshire cat? He wasn’t very purr-suasive.

“I am really sorry this is such a tame adventure, Periwinkle. Is there anything else you’d like to do?”

Remembering Allie and Mau

“Can we take our Temptations and sit on Mau’s bench for a little while and remember him and my sisfur Allie?”

Stinky takes Periwinkle’s paw and leads her across the yard to the bench.

 

Mad Hatter's Day

 

“This is such a peaceful spot, Stinky. I sure hope Allie and Mau are happy and having fun with all their friends and fursibs who are also at the Bridge.”

Stinky wipes a tear from Periwinkle’s eye and gives her a whisker kiss. “I am sure they miss us as much as we miss them. I just keep reminding myself that we all will be together again and until then we hold them in our hearts.”

“Thanks, Stinky,” says Periwinkle, as she wraps her paws around his neck and rests her head on his shoulder.

The tabbies sit quietly hugging until it is time for Periwinkle to head back to the teleportation tunnel and home. With a final whisker kiss, Periwinkle and Stinky say, “good-bye,” each already looking forward to next week.

The End

Aww, you kids are the best! So sweet–but honestly I think your Mom set you up to bomb with those lame jokes! Now if you want GOOD jokes, you just come and talk to Uncle Spitty. Cause *I* have the best ones — your Mommy might not let you tell them on your nice blog though. Heh heh. Take care, Mr. Sawyer, I gots my paws crossed for you!

I wish those seizures would go away forever. They are frightening. I do enjoy when they get together though. Always fun no matter what they do. It’s the getting together that’s the most important thing.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches to all the kitties. Healing scritches to Sawyer and a big hug to the mom. ♥

This was a purrfect Adventure!! We’re MOL @ the jokes. We’re pretty subdued today too. After close to five months, Raz had a seizure last night too.

Good idea to have a calm but fun day together after Sawyer’s last seizure……there’s lots of fun to be had quietly and they sure did do that this week! Loved the jokes – too cute AND their fancy hats. Please tell Sawyer to PLEASE eat his food so he doesn’t have another seizure. We do worry about him!

Hugs, Teddy
