This evening's episode is guest blogged by a member of our extended family, Stephenie Cooper of San José, California. Those of you with excellent memories (I'm talking about YOU, Mr. Leonardo Ricardo of Foot-Of-The-Volcano, Guatemala!) may remember this episode of Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito blogging which took place when I was staying at Stephenie's place back in November of 2007. She has Gallito's cousin, who I call Mescaline Rooster (Stephenie actually gave me Gallito Mescalito after a Cursillo one Christmas), but in this episode, she calls him Gallita Mescalina, which would be an effeminate version of the name, since "Gallito" means "rooster" which, of course, is a male chicken. Which, of course, is not a big problem around here (I'm just trying to save us all a Lecture On The Spanish Language from the well-loved-by-all-of-us and the present crush of the evil lesbian priestess [who is also well loved by all of us] David Austin Allen, Dance Party Language Expert), especially when the story is So Dang Good! ¡Gracias, Stephenie!
Entonces, let's all enjoy Stephenie's contribution!
Gallita Mescalina decided to go out exploring and met a new friend.
As Spot looked on from on top of el túnel del gato, suddenly, the situation became perilous.
Abby took off because she heard a can opener.
And Gallita quickly found herself in big trouble.
Gallita (offstage) Shriek!
Lori Mmm ... mmm ... delicioso.
Then Lori got distracted when Squeak tried to make his escape.
Alas, poor Squeak. He took on the crown of martyrdom so that Gallita would be spared.
Gallita (offstage) Shriek!
While Lori cleaned off her paws and took a post-Squeak cat nap, Gallita consulted with Spot.
Spot You know, you might try hiding up on el túnel del gato. They never look there.
Spot Uh oh.
Gallita made her way to the top of the túnel del gato while Lori chased Spot.
She made a grisly discovery when she got there.
She discovered that los gatos actually do look up there.
Abby I don't think so.
While Abby and Lori fought over who would get Gallita and the remains of el leónito, Gallita made her way down el túnel del gato.
Gallita met Rocky Raccoon and asked him for advice.
Rocky I'd try that big pillow thing if I were you.
But, of course, Rocky was just trying to make sure that los gatos were distracted while he made his escape.
Abby Now I've got you, my pretty.
But what saved Gallita, as you can guess, is that fact that cats would rather take a nap than anything else in the world. Abby just walked off and she and Lori prepared for their 12-times-a-day nap. All Gallita could think to do was give them her opinion of how she'd been treated during her oddysey.
And Gallita made her way home, anxious to tell her friend about her day.
Gallo con la lengüeta amarilla Bleah!
Okay! We all gotta admit that that was some EXCELLENT training of them kittehs!
