Back and forth. Back and forth. What’s gotten into you, Steinbeck? Do you have ants in your pants?
In the first place, I don’t wear pants. In the second place, I sure wouldn’t allow ants in them. What made you ask such a stupid question?
You keep running around the house like a crazy cat.
I’m using my excess energy to warm up the air.
It’s cold outside and I’m trying to get it as warm as possible in the house.
We have a furnace and a wood-burning stove to keep all of us very warm. You don’t have to run around using up all your energy to make it warm. Besides, I like to take naps in the sun puddles.
But if you look outside, the sky is gray and there’s no sunshine. There are no sun puddles around. Besides, there are a few little white specks floating around in the air. I guess the angels must be dusting today. I have to keep running around so nobody gets cold. When I get tired, then I’ll take a nap.
I’m going to dream about taking a nap in a sun puddle.
My little brother, Shakespeare, was off in another room taking a nap so I decided to take advantage of all the sun puddles. They’ve been hiding for a really long time so it was wonderful to see them again. I grabbed a couple of books and made myself comfortable.
Mom said I looked so nice and toasty warm that she decided to grab her own book and join me. The two of us sharing a sun puddle. How cool is that???
