With a Little Help from my Friend
Look at this face. Could I ever be guilty of anything? Do I look innocent or what?
Mom is mad 'cause when I jumped up on the corner of the bathroom sink, her phone got knocked into the toilet. But friends, let me tell you my story and I know you'll agree that I'm completely innocent.
See, Mom's phone started making a weird noise like, "doot-dootly-oot" in the middle of the night, which meant there was a message. She thought the message might be from our human brother, so she got out of bed and brought her phone into the bathroom so she could read it without waking up Dad. When she saw the message was not from our brother, she left the phone on the corner of the sink and went back to bed.
Well, that was fine until she got up in the morning. Naturally, as I always do, I jumped up on the sink to say "Good morning, Mom" and get my pets, and that's when the phone went in the toilet.
Now, I'm sure you'll agree with me that this is totally not my fault...totally! Let me explain my reasons:
1. It's not my fault some idiot messaged Mom in the middle of the night
2. It's not my fault she left her phone on the sink in the bathroom instead of bringing it back into the bedroom
3. I couldn't possibly have seen from my vantage point on the floor that the phone was sitting where I always sit on the sink, therefore,
4. It's not my fault it got knocked into the toilet when I jumped
You all agree with me, right?
Well, Mom's phone stopped working and she's mad that she had to go get a new one. I say, if there's someone to be mad at, it certainly isn't me. She should be mad at the fool that messaged her at 3AM, or be mad at herself for leaving her phone on the edge of the sink where it could easily have fallen into the toilet all by itself.
And really, if you think about it, I think you'll also agree that Mom should really be thanking me for my help with this since now she has a great new Iphone that does everything!
