So I said to mommy last night, "I've been watching the news and seen all the scary green papers stuff. This won't effect the quality of presents I'll be getting on my birthday and Christmas will it?"
Then my heart stopped because she looked sad. She said, "No sweetie, you'll still get fun, nice presents, but...."
Me: "But what"
Mommy: "Well, I've been looking for a way to tell you this. Your daddy and I are going on a vacation. We're going to Florida for a wedding and then going to Disney World and other stuff."
Me: "Excuse me? When will this "abandonment" be taking place?"
Mommy: "We'll be leaving Nov. 1 and coming back Nov. 9th"
Me: "You do realize that my SIXTH BIRTHDAY is on NOVEMBER 3RD right???"
Mommy: "Sigh, yes I do and I am very very sorry we won't be here to celebrate with you."
Me: "Fine, fine, do whatever you want. Just understand I will be having friends over and we will be trashing the house"
Mommy: "You can have friends over, but you may not trash the house."
Me: "Can and will chippy"
Mommy: "You'd better make sure Bendrix stays in line"
Me: "I make no promises woman. Hey, what is this "other place" you'll go see?"
Mommy: "Um, well, remember that Ghost Hunters we like so much? The St. Augustine Lighthouse one. We're going there to walk around and take a ghost tour."
Me: "I am so cheesed off right now! You'd better just feed me, give me some chin scritches, tell me how handsome I am and then leave me alone for a while to process this...."
Mommy: "Ok, but how about if..."
Me: "I didn't give you permission to speak anymore. Just scritch quietly"
