…who knew he could croon?
The Scottish Pixie Event
(Note: This is not actually that strange an occurrence at our house. Additionally, for those not in the know, Daisy, Sasha, Silky, Luke & Misty are dogs. Max is a mutant rabbit and Daisy’s boyfriend.)
So I’m at the laundromat when I get this text…
Daisy: 30 Scottish pixies have infested Mom’s closet! No time for details. Please come home to help us.
Me: Your text did not go through. Please try again next week.
Daisy: Stop messing around, Daddy! Mom will be home from Winco in 20 minutes!
Me: We are sorry, but Mr. Cross cannot answer you, consumed by laughter as he is.
Daisy: THEY BITE AND THEY CRAP ON US!
Me: We are sorry, but Mr. Cross has just expired due to laughing so hard.
Daisy: You are such a dick!
(Note: At this point, I was laughing so hard that a lady at the laundromat asked me if I was okay.)
A somewhat later text from Sasha…
Holy crap, don’t come home, Daddy! Silky and I stepped in the front door and there was shit all over the house and Daisy & Max & the whole nerd posse were all bit up and crying and a bunch of Scottish pixies in a cage called me a fucking cunt and Mom was right in the middle of things about to hit critical mass.
Suggest you come have a cold one with Silky and I at the pool hall until this blows over.
(Note: Cue another fit of laughter. People start moving to the far end of the laundromat.)
A slightly later text from Luke…
Misty and I were about to come home for the weekend when we got a text from Silky. We will spend tonight in Denver instead. We’ll come home once Mom has cooled off.
(Note: Luke and Misty have a highly developed sense of danger.)
The final text, from Grace, my wife…
When you get home, you’ll find Daisy and her crew frozen in carbonite in the front yard. DO NOT RELEASE THEM BEFORE DINNER TONIGHT! The Bots are cleaning the house and I am going to dispose of Stupified pixies, then take a nap. I do not want to discuss this day ever!
(Note: Not discussing it lasted only until she woke up from her nap and said to me: “Do you know what your youngest dog did today?”)
