(You Don't Have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One!)
We were dressed and ready to go out for the New Years Eve
Party. We turned on a night light
, turned the answering machine on, covered
our pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard.
We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi
arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house. The cat we put out
in the yard, scoots back into the house. We didn't want the cat shut in the
house because she always tries to eat the bird.
My wife goes out to the taxi, while I went inside to get the
cat. The cat runs upstairs, with me in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, my
wife doesn't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the
night. So, she explains to the taxi driver that I will be out soon, "He's
just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother."
A few minutes later, I get into the cab. "Sorry I took so
long," I said, as we drove away. "That stupid b#!$h was hiding under the
bed. Had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried
to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a
blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her fat
A$$ downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!"
The cab driver hit a parked car....
