The Nap Monster


This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. And I have an issue.  With Girl Person.  Because she has an issue with me.  And you should never have issues with the law.  I am the law.

Girl Person says that even the Sheriff should take a break.  She says that we have had a lot of work the past few weeks, and if she does not get a nap, she is going to get cranky.  I say crankier…and that is the truth.

So yesterday, she said she had to take a nap.  She asked me and Digby if we wanted to join her.  Well, uh, yeah, you can’t take a nap by yourself.  That is not allowed.  I am always on duty, even in my sleep with I am still arresting someone.  So we laid down and I heard it.  The squeal of the tires of that irritating package delivery truck and I hate it.  I hate it a lot.  How dare it come down our street in the middle of the day all irritating like that?  No, no…not having it.

So I jumped up and started barking.  I mean, if I barked loud enough, maybe it wouldn’t come down our street and wake up Girl Person.  I guess I forgot I was doing the awaking.  Girl Person told me that she appreciated my alert, but seriously?  Yes, seriously.  One day I will get that thing. I will arrest its brakes like no one’s business!  I have had enough and enough is enough is enough.  No more nap interrupting blame on me you truck!  You.  Are.  Arrested.  And by the way, thanks for making Girl Person’s crankier.  I really, really, really appreciate it.
