Which One Will She Believe?

GEORGE

Um...OK...I need to come up with some REALLY good excuses here before Mom sees this.

Let's see...uh...how does this sound?

1. Complete Denial: That's not me, Mom. An imposter George broke into our house and decided to lay in the plant. Do you think she'll believe that? No? Me either...alright, let's try this one.

2. Shifting Blame: You must be seeing things, Mom. Have you been drinking?! I'm shocked! Oh wait, Mom hardly ever drinks alcohol so that won't work. (sigh) Just give me a second here...how about

3. Mechanical Failure: Well obviously there's some problem with your camera! Darn it, that's no good 'cause the camera's almost new.

Oh, help me everyone! What am I going to do? Here she's been blaming Misty for breaking the plants and getting dirt all over, and now this incriminating picture of me suddenly appears!

Do you think she'd believe

4. The Sympathy Angle: I was passing through the dining room when suddenly I felt weak and very dizzy, so I thought it best that I rest for a while.

Oh wait...I've got it!! Something close to the truth should do it. How about

5. OK, fine...you caught me, but so what! All the plants here are plastic now because of Misty.

MISTY

Hey, wait a minute!! I didn't wreck all the plants here...there are still 2 real ones that I'm workin' on! And obviously I'm not the only one gettin' dirt on the floor!

George, sometimes it's important to keep plants warm, isn't it? I mean it is winter, and they will die if they get too cold. That's an angle you might try!

Good luck. I hope you don't get into too much trouble, George.
We don't even get to have fake plants here..we would eat those too.

You could say you were goin' to put some fertilizer on it...

I hope you don't get in trouble!

I say go with the "inconsiderate stunt double" reasoning. And, if she won't drink alcohol on her own, offer her a cocktail before you unleash your tale!

Plants are soooooo over-rated, anyway!

Good luck! (I think you're going to need it!)

You know, George...After reading back about the whole "gentleman caller" thing this last week, it got me thinking.

You know I like a "bad boy" and you sure are showing your rebellion in this photo! All you have to do is pledge your undying love and boundless devotion to me and you could join my Tomcat Stable.

And, if you two don't get jealous of one another and he can be bad, too...Max is welcome to worship me, as well!

My Meowm thinks that if you just look at her like you adore her and blink your eyes a few times, you will be forgiven. It can't hurt to try!

Go with the truth, its always best to tell the truth.

Good luck George! We don't have ANY plants- live or fake because we'd be doing that stuff all day long. Maybe you should just blame mom because she has plants in the first place!

I think you should go with: "I thought the plant looked so much better with a little elegance--me."

Or, I noticed that someone had sat on the plant and squashed it down and I was trying to cover it up...

George, you are protecting the plant from Misty. that is why you are there!

Hello everyone. Fat Eddy here. Here's my suggestion about what to do about the inciminatin pic of you in the plant. Nuthin... ignore it and its gonna blow over. That's what I do at my house. As an example, when someone says who knocked the salt and pepper shakers onto the floor, or who pulled the toilet paper roll all the way down the hall, or who put the catnip mouse in the toilet (that was an accident), I just look them right in the eye and walk away like I got not a care in the world. Give it a try. The peeps say I got an attitude and can't take productive feedback well... I'M A CAT ALREADY. Okay, gotta go tomorrow is the day I get to go visit my girl Zipporah. Oh yeah and I apologize for all the comments I made about Zippy's brothers. I guess I've only got eyes for my girl and never even noticed the others.

Gee George if it's plastic it shouldn't efun matter dat yoo skwashed it. Those can be bent back into shape. But yoo should tell the troof. I ushooaly say "yeah, I did dat, and..." then mom sighs and cleans up whateffer da mess I made is. I fink it's acuz she loves me. I know yoo guys are protektif of yoor sisfurs, but do yoo fink it wood be o.k. fur Misty to come over fur ham and some play time on sat-ur-day? My sisfurs will be here and lots of offer kitties will be popping in and out. I'll take good care of her. Yoo guyz and Tipper shood come too, we gotz lotz of ham and momma sed dat der iz no way dat dey can eet it all.

I'd say..."I thought this was a cat nest."

Oh George, I hope you don't get in trouble! You look very comfy on the plant there. I like all of your excuses, but the truth is probably best.

How about "I saw a moth flying around and I knew it would get into the good wooly stuff unless I caught it. So I caught it (after many big jumps) and landed by accident on the plants. And rather than try to hide it, I stayed here until you saw me and I could show you the evil wool-eating moth. So can I now have a treat for my special helpful work, please?"
