The people I protect at the shop come up with the craziest names for things. Maybe it’s because I’m a Kitty, but humans just have strange names for things. For instance…a “Roman.”
We make those at the shop. I know what all you kitties out there are thinking, “What in the world is a Roman?” The best I way I know how to describe it is: a piece of fabric that humans cover there windows with, that can be rolled up an down by some weird string.
I know, kind of strange, but harmless…or at least that’s what those Romans want you think!…
“We have some many Romans to put together today,” Shannon told my person.
“I know, I can’t wait to get these out of here and installed. It’s like they’re taking over the shop,” my person said.
What!!!! Whose taking over the shop? Not on my watch they don’t!
(I’ll be honest, I only ever “half-listen” to my person when I’m securing the shop in the morning.)
“Some of these Romans are so big,” Shannon said.
Bring it on, those Roman’s wont take over this shop…noooo they won’t. I don’t care how big they are, I’ll keep you safe.
So it began. Each Roman had to be inspected to see if they were the one that was the ring leader. It took quite a bit of time to interrogate each one. I’m only one kitty after all. I must have interrogated 10 of them when I came to number 11…
All right 11, are you the ring leader? Are you the one trying to take over the shop? Huh! If you confess right now I’ll go easy, but if you don’t…well, it’s going to be bad.
I stared 11 down. There was just something about it, I didn’t trust it.
I’m watching you 11. I’m watching.
Just as I was about to move on to 12…AAAHHH! It swung it’s sneaky little string out to get me!
Ah Hah! I knew you were the ring leader! I jumped and swung back at 11 as fast as I could. You aren’t going to hurt my people! I …will …protect… this ….shop!
It was a long, fierce battle. Number 11 gave a good fight, but it was no match for me. With one final Attack!!! by me the battle was over. The sneaky string of 11 finally surrendered and stood still.
Now let that be a lesson to you 11. You won’t take over this shop as long as I’m here. I’m the sworn protector of this shop and the people who work here. You will NOT hurt them. DO YOU UNDERSTAND!
11’s string just stood there in silent submission. Good, I’m glad we have an understanding.
