Between Sisters

MOM

Misty!!!! Were you by this plant?

MISTY

Um...(whispers to Tipper) Tipper, what should I say?

TIPPER

I don't know.

MISTY

I don't know, Mom.

MOM

What do you mean, you don't know? Someone broke this plant and got dirt all over the rug.

MISTY

Um, well (looks around nervously) uh, Tipper told me to say that, and (gulp)...uh, I was throwing the catnip mousie in the air and it flew into the plant and...(sniff) and...and then the plant fell over when I jumped on it (sniff) and... and dirt came out (sob) and I know it's my fault but (sniff) I'm really trying to be good 'cause (sob) Santa's coming (sniff) and now (sob, sob)... and now he might not bring me a present!!

MOM

Well, thank you for telling me the truth. I happen to know Santa very well and I'll tell him this was an accident. I'm sure he'll bring you what you asked for.

MISTY

(sniff, hic) A feather-butt mousie?! (scowls at Tipper) I almost didn't get my present 'cause of you!

TIPPER

What...I didn't tell you to lie to Mom. I meant I wasn't sure if you were by the plant so how could I tell you what to say!

Misty, remember other cats may have different agendas, particularly when feather butt mousies are in play... in fact--I think that mousie is MINE!!! MINE !!!! MINE!!!

Midnight: Don't worry - I have "accidents" with the plants all the time. I think the sobbing was an excellent touch - very convincing!

Grr: Um...Midnight, I think Misty was being honest and sincere.

Midnight: REALLY? Huh. Well, I guess that could work too...

Santa understands about accidents (at least that's what my humans tell me, as this will be my first Christmas). I'm sure you'll still receive a nice feather-butt mousie (which sounds like a lot of fun - I love feathers!)
