got some 'splainin to do

this morning i was up at 6:15 to go to work. i am not a morning person at all, so i will admit i am in a bit of a fog when i first get out of bed. as i was about to walk out the door, i noticed megadeth laying in front of the stove swatting underneath furiously and trying to reach something that was just beyond her furry little grasp. the 3 cats are always losing their beloved feather mice and jingly balls underneath the furniture. i went and pulled out the extra curtain rod i have laying around the house for this exact purpose and did a wide sweep underneath the entire stove, prepared to reward megadeth with her favorite mouse toy. instead, i knocked loose a burrito.


being that i was in this sleep-induced fog that i mentioned earlier, the first irrational thought that ran through my head was, "why was there a GIANT rawhide bone underneath our stove? we don't have a dog." then i realized that what i was looking at was an unwrapped frozen burrito, no longer frozen. i gotta say, it was a little funny, and i was also slightly annoyed that josh would drop a burrito on the ground and leave it there for god knows how long. did it drop and he couldn't find where it went so he gave up? did he kick it under the stove so he could pretend he didn't know where it fell and not have to pick it up? i figured i would ask him later when he woke up and i gave the curtain rod one more sweep to find the toy megadeth was after in the first place. i brought the rod out and there it was. ANOTHER BURRITO.


i left the (curiously intact -- don't those things decompose?) burritos in a plastic bag on the counter for josh, along with a note that said "seems you have some 'splainin to do!"

josh has maintained an "i don't know NUTHIN!" stance all day long.

in the end, i can only assume that megadeth was after a real mouse who was under the stove chomping on a mexican feast josh was nice enough to provide.


  1. Ok...so if Josh didn't drop them, where did they come from? Maybe your landlord sneaks in your apt when you're both gone at work and rummages through your freezer to find lunch. He must been pissed off that you only had frozen burritos and just left them. On the floor, no less. Talk to your cats and see if they'll fess up. Ha!

  2. I almost fell off my chair I was laughing so hard at this!
