Senility and Peas



Things around here have been hectic as we're still pimping primping our house for sale. You know, cleaning, polishing cabinet knobs (I kid you not), updates and other stuff. Everything has to be just so..

 ***********!!!SENILITY ALERT!!!***********
(we might want to add that sound that comes with TV interruptions for national emergencies..)

Just to show how bad it's gotten, at suppertime the other day, Mom Julie was getting out a bag of peas from the freezer. They had been opened already, put into another bag, but she forgot to zip it up and when she dropped it..




Oh, my Cod! There were peas everywhere! Peas to the left, peas to the right, peas up my in my ears




How do you approach a thousand tiny, green balls?




I know I wasn't much help. She was standing with her mouth wide open, not believing her eyes, I guess. I did scout beneath cabinets to make sure she didn't miss any as she cleaned up. Can you imagine a buyer finding a bunch of peas under the fridge or a stray one behind the door?


 

Finally, after the initial shock, they were finally swept away.

I don't know if this has happened to you, but accidents in the kitchen really are a hoot. People running around like their pants are on fire. Of course, you and I just try to stay out of the way, keep a level head and call it good.



 So long, peas!

--Tom

LOL! If that bag of peas had dropped in OUR kitchen, you can be sure Mommy would be screaming at Tutu to STOP eating them.

Oh my goodness, someone really pea'd on your floor!

Thanks for joining the Senile Saturday blog hop—even if TW is too senile to know how to do a blog hop! Stupid human tricks always make me laugh. Thanks for sharing. Brian's comment completely cracked us up. Peas be with you, my furrend.

Oh my gosh! Senility and peas! That brought back to mind a story my great gramma told me about when her dad was losing it. He didn't understand the freezer so she had to make a false back to hers because when she came home from work he would have all the frozen peas spread out on the table trying to figure out why they were hard!
I'm sure it wasnt funny at the time, but I think it's a hoot now! (love the word 'hoot'!)

Sparkle said...

Khyra is right - any kitchen accidents around here are cleaned up by the dog. So I guess she is good for something!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

BTW, LOL @ Brian!

Eric and Flynn said...

MOL! Peas everywhere! It's a pity it wasn't a big bag of cat treats though.

Marg said...

That sounds like something that would happen to our Mom. What a mess of peas. Too bad it wasn't a bag of cat treats. Hope the move goes well for all of you.

Maggie @ Shelter Cats said...

It was nice of the mom to put on a floor show for Tom.

The Island Cats said...

That's something our mom woulda done! And we agree with Eric and Flynn...too bad she didn't drop a big bag of treats!!

Katnip Lounge said...

How highly disPEASing!

Eileen said...

That must have been fun chasing peas. We would have sent the flying under the fridge and the cupboards because that's just the way we are! You are much more helpful to your mom. MOL

Mary said...

Oh no, Tom! A mess indeed, but a colorful one. :) And you just sat quietly and watched your Mom sweep up.. right? Oh well, what can a cute kitty really do when his human makes a boo boo? :D Have a good weekend, sweetie!

The Cat From Hell said...

Bwaa! Haa! Haa! THAT has happened at our house too! And it is always when the house is being ccleaned, and polished! My purrsonal favorite is Maple Syrup and a bag of pancake mix!

Good one, Brian! We solved the senility in the kitchen in our house. The woman has one cupboard for our food and she is allowed in to feed us and to make coffee. That's about it.

Hey Tinker, Jet here. Hi Miss Julie.

BOL... sorry, but, we got a chuckle reading this.

Mom dropped a box of pasta, which my human sister INCORRECTLY left in the fridge (should be in the pantry sister, until it's cooked!) JJ and I helped Mom clean up... she heard the crunch, crunch of the dry pasta as she was sweeping the floor and the inside of the fridge!

Thanks again for visiting us and sharing your kind thoughts. Sorry we had to make your acquaintance under such circumstances.

Cherry City Kitties said...

We're just glad they weren't mushy peas !

Julia Williams said...

That bag of peas sure did make a fine mess, MOL. I once dropped a container of black beans, and I'm still finding them under the fridge!

meowmeowmans said...

Holy Cat! Just look at all those peas EVERYWHERE! Moosey probably would've tried to eat them. He *does* like lettuce, after all.

Hope you have a great night, dear friends.

Hugs!

Old Kitty said...

Peas be with you! LOL!

Awwww lovely Tom!! Me and Charlie think you did a great job snoopervising mum with her peas picking!

Take care

Tamago said...

Oh my goodness, that's a lot of peas!! You did great job helping her clean. I've done such thing, and yes we run around like our pants are on fire :-)

Hi Whiskers!! Sherlock here.
Peas are so fun to play with! MOL

Debs said...

I imagine Tom, you would have had chilly paws playing with those little green balls.

Looks to me like you were LOTS of help! Humans are so weird.

It's nice to meet you, a fellow handsome mancat Maine Coon!

Oui Oui said...

Those peas look like fun! Oops, was Saturday a Senile Day? We keep forgetting! Ahahaha!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

I've been meaning to come over and say something since Leo's birthday party and I keep forgetting!
I don't know if you noticed the 'pin up kittygirls' in Leo's mancat cave.. But I borrowed one of your Mitty's pictures. It didn't occur to me until later that I should have asked first.. I appologize for that, and for misspelling her name as Middy not Mitty in the credits.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Oh geez. Our mom is the original fumblefingers. She's dropped all kinds of stuff on the floor like that. Twice it was our kibble! Talk about a mad dash to gobble every morsel we could before she got the broom!!!! That was great!

GreatGranny said...

Oh boy, tiny little green balls to whap.

Frozen peas make great cat toys! Good thing you were there to help snoopervise.
