People and fur people who are Disciples of The Leader Otis,
When I walked into the living room this morning I could not believe what I was seeing. Brother Oliver was wearing a Catsmas sweater! Before I even knew what I was doing, I started laughing out loud. He just looked so funny!
After I got myself under control I said, “Brother Oliver! Why are you wearing a sweater? You have fur, you know…” Brother Oliver said, “Sir Thomas, the Guardians put this sweater on me. I have no idea why, but they seem to think I look good in it. I hate it though. What’s even worse is I think it’s a dog sweater!” Unable to hold it back, I started laughing again. I said, “I have to go find Brother Henry! He has to see this!”
As I left Brother Oliver I shouted, “Brother Henry! Come quick! Brother Oliver is wearing a sweater and it is sooooo funny!” Just as I finished my sentence I rounded the corner of the couch and came face to face with Brother Henry who was sitting on a bed nearby. Without even turning his head to look at me, he said, “I fail to see what’s so funny about it…”
For a moment I was speechless. Was I really seeing this? Was Brother Henry really wearing antlers and a bowtie? When I realized that my eyes were not deceiving me the laughter came again, and it was even louder this time. I really could not help it.
I rolled around on the floor laughing for several minutes. Through the laughter I managed to say, “I do not understand why you guys are so annoyed by all this. You really look like you are full of the holiday spirit!”, and then I was taken by another fit of uncontrollable laughter. As the laughter died down, I heard Brother Oliver say, “Thomas… there’s something you should know…” I composed myself and opened my eyes to see both Brother Oliver and Brother Henry looking at me.
I said, “OK, Brother Oliver, what is it that I need to know?” Brother Oliver said, “The Guardians still have a kitty-sized Santa hat that they haven’t used this year. The white fur under your chin looks a lot like a Santa beard. They are probably coming for you next…”
That was all I needed to hear. I got the heck out of there immediately and retreated to my most well-hidden safey-safe. As I departed I heard The Brothers burst out laughing. I failed to see what was so funny about the idea of me in a Santa hat.
