Stop! Thief!!

A few days ago as I was getting ready to go out for the morning I quickly slipped a protein bar into my purse.  I take one with me when I go out so I’ll have a bit of nourishment handy if I need something between meals.  I went about the business of getting ready to go, doing little things around the house and taking care of some business.  Shortly before I left the house I realized I needed to eat something so I decided to get the protein bar.  Reaching into the side pocket of my purse where I had put the protein bar – or where thought I had put it - I found it wasn’t there!  Was I having a senior moment again?  I turned my purse around and tried the side pocket on the other side of my purse.  No, not there!  Now what was going on?  Why couldn't I find it?  How could I have missed it?  As I rummaged through all the pockets inside and outside of my purse – and finding nothing – I decided to do something drastic.  I emptied the contents of my entire purse in search of the allusive protein bar.  Nothing!  How could that be?  I was sure I had put it in my purse.  I sat and thought for a minute or two before a sudden realization dawned on me.  The protein bar was gone – and so was someone who had, up until a few minutes ago, been sleeping in the living room.  Now, I was onto something!  I was sure the mystery would soon be solved.

A short walk down the hall to my bedroom was all it took to find what had happened to my protein bar.  I stood at the door into our room and called the suspected culprit’s name.  Slowly, ever so slowly, a tiny bit of a black nose poked out from under our bed.  As I kept calling, the thief crouched close to the ground and, with eyes cast downward, eventually completely emerged from under the bed.  Aha!  Caught!  Sure enough.  With the alleged thief nearby, I lay on the floor and looked under the bed.  Can you imagine what I saw?  Yes – you’re right!  You guessed it.

There - under my bed -  was the wrapper and the missing protein bar.  Partially eaten.  Thoroughly enjoyed, I’m sure.  Now tell me, who would have thought someone this cute could do such a dastardly deed?  How cute this sweet little face be the face of a thief?

  7. that is so funny Adrienne!! Our dog Jesse has a favorite food- Dairy! I caught him with his paws on the counter the other day eyeing the butter I had left there! One Thanksgiving he licked the whipped creme off one of the pies- the whole thing had to go in the trash!
