People and fur people who are Disciples of The Leader Otis,
It’s Thomas. Soooo… I guess Brother Henry heard about Brother Oliver’s failed attempt at starting a “Cooking with Kitties” show and he thought he could do better. As I was walking toward the living room yesterday I heard Brother Henry saying, “Hello, and welcome to Crafting with Kitties! Today we’re going to make paper… ummm… things!” I walked into the room and saw one of the Guardians sitting at a table with craft supplies laid out in front of her. Brother Henry was sitting on the table and watching what the Guardian was doing. As he watched, he also narrated. Brother Henry said, “OK. The first thing we’re going to do is take some of that green paper and fold it or something…”
The Guardian gave Brother Henry a strange look, as if she couldn’t understand what he was meowing about, then she went back to work. Brother Henry continued, “…then we’re going to put a shape thingy on the piece of paper and… ummmm… well…” He seemed unsure as to what would happen next.
As the Guardian started cutting around the shape she had just attached to the paper, Brother Henry said, “Oh yeah! We’re going to cut the shape out of the paper because… wait, why are we doing that?” Although the show didn’t seem very informative, I have to admit I was finding it kind of entertaining.
Brother Henry continued to look confused. Perhaps because he did not know what else to do, he repositioned himself so he was sitting on the paper that the Guardian was working on. The Guardian seemed amused. She picked up a different piece of paper and showed it to Brother Henry. He said, “Ummm… yes, now I shall inspect this other piece of paper to make sure it is suitable for whatever we are doing here…”
A bird flew by the front window and momentarily distracted Brother Henry. The Guardian continued to work as Brother Henry dreamed of crunching birds. At this point I noticed the big bouquet of paper flowers sitting on the desk right beside him. That’s what the Guardian was making! I was surprised Brother Henry hadn’t figured it out.
After a few moments, the Guardian got Brother Henry’s attention by putting a half finished paper flower near his face. He was still thinking about the bird, and licking his lips, when he looked at it.
Suddenly, Brother Henry remembered that he was in the middle of doing a show. He said, “OH! UH! Yes! We are making flowers here on Crafting with Kitties! That’s what we’re doing. And look! We already have a whole bouquet right here in this jar! I bet they smell wonderful!” Brother Henry then buried his face in the flowers and sniffed deeply.
As Brother Henry pulled his head out of the flowers he said, “Hmmmm… you know, these actually just smell like paper with a touch of Guardian on them. Guess I should have expected that. You know… maybe this isn’t the right show for me…”
All of the sudden, Brother Henry jumped down off the table and headed off toward the back of the house. Finally noticing that I was watching, he said, “Sorry Thomas, Crafting with Kitties has been canceled! Don’t worry though, I’m going to see if I can spot that bird that flew by earlier from the back window. If I do, I will be starting a new show!” I asked Brother Henry what the new show would be called and he said, “Crunching with Kitties!” I paused for a moment and then ran after him shouting, “Wait up Brother H! Can I be your co-star!?”
