Watching a movie with the Mama and Felix. We snuggled up last night to watch a great one and I can’t help but reflect fondly on the whole experience. There’s something so darn…cozy…about it, isn’t there.
I don’t know why the Mama was so disgruntled about it.
That lady is a crank pot. I mean, there the Felix and I are, all ready to enjoy this fun film and she is just downright uptight! I don’t really get what her issues were, but she seemed to throwing out those exasperated sighs a whole lot and she kept snapping at me. What do you think? Was I being a “pest”, as she insisted I was?
Things overheard at Casa de Kolchak while watching a movie:
1. “Kolchak, quit barking at the screen.”
We were watching a dog movie. The dogs in the movie barked. I barked back. That is called having a conversation , Mama. It’s what polite dogs DO. Can you imagine how rude it would have been if a dog on my own TV barked at me and I didn’t bark back? I mean really, how is that for hospitality.
2. “Kolchak, lay down.”
I am a busy little guy. Movies are long. Sometimes, I just have to get up and stretch my little legs. Is it my fault that my stretching route occasionally took me directly through the Mama’s line of vision to the TV? No. You want me out of your way Mama? Buy a bigger house. In this tiny living room the only place to stand is in front of you.
3. “Kolchak, get your snout out of the snack bowl.”
I like snacks. Our movie snack du jour is particularly awesome: Peanut Butter Bananaram Chips. I loved them. I just wanted a few (read: all of them). She was being ridiculously stingy with them, especially considering the were supposed to be dog treats and she was eating them too.
4. “Kolchak, for woofing out loud, that is my pancreas.”
Um, yeah, my bad. I was standing on her pancreas. I don’t know what it is about human pancreases, but they are apparently quite fragile and not for standing on. She got really worked up about this one. In my defense, I was just trying to get over her to get at the snack bowl of PB Bananarama Chips, which she had chosen to move out of my snout reach. The only way to get to them was over here; the pancreas crushing was unavoidable.
5. “Felix, come snuggle the Mama.”
After she gave up on ever getting me to settle down, she turned her attention to the Felix, looking for a nice cuddle. He’s a suck up, so he did exactly what she asked. I don’t know about that brother of mine. I mean, really, he could have scored extra snacks if he had rushed her and snuck his snout in the bowl. Instead, he snuggled up in her arms and gently nudged her hand with his cold, wet nose every time he wanted a chip. Suck. Up. It made me sick.
Four paws up on the movie though.
Despite my antics, I really enjoyed the movie we were watching. It was about dogs, so the subject was (obviously) awesome. It touched a soft spot and featured on of the Mama’s secret loves too, which was a bonus. If you wanna come back tomorrow, we’ll tell you ALL about it.
What kind of fun do you get up to while your peeps watch a movie?
