Disciples of The Leader Otis,
Brother Henry here.
Yesterday afternoon I walked into the living room and discovered Thomas sleeping in a very weird position. It was so weird, in fact, that I grabbed the nearest camera to try to get a photo of him. Unfortunately, I’m no Brother Oliver when it comes to photography, but I did at least manage to get a shot.
While I tried to figure out how to adjust the camera to get a better photo. Thomas started to stir in his sleep. He rolled over into a similar but different position, and just as he did, his eyes opened. At that very moment the camera flash went off. Unfortunately, the flash didn’t work well enough to make the picture better, but it did work well enough to totally annoy Thomas.
Thomas said, “Brother Henry? Will you please stop doing that? I’m trying to do two things at once here, and I need to concentrate.” When I asked what, exactly, he was trying t do, he said, “Well, I had just finished thoroughly cleaning my belly hair when I started to feel really sleepy. I don’t like to sleep on damp fur because it gets all matted. By sleeping like this, I am trying to nap and dry my belly at the same time. It’s a delicate balancing act, and your newly found interest in the camera is throwing me off!”
I apologized profusely to Sir Thomas, but as soon as he closed his eyes again I couldn’t resist taking one more photo.
After taking the last photo, I darted out of the room hoping that Thomas hadn’t noticed. As I retreated, I heard him yell, “Brother Henry!!!”, but I just kept going. When I saw him again later, his belly fur looked a little bit matted, but I’m sure I had nothing to do with that…
So Says Brother Henry
