To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

One Last Adventure

I know.  You are all tired of the Little UnDead.  Me too.  Nonetheless, we have one last tale to tell.  I promise.  This will be the last you'll hear of him for awhile.  I hope.  Besides, I'm running out of adjectives.  Oy.

Okay, so the last place that Meager Malfeasant went, you are just not going to believe.  Are you ready for this?  He went to ... wait for it ... a Doll Show.  Are you disappointed?  Disconcerted?  Worried?  I'm all of those and probably a few more I haven't thought of yet.  Still, it is what it is, and that's where he went so I suppose we'll just have to pull up our big goat panties and deal with it, eh?  Of course some goats' panties are bigger than others and thus more difficult to pull up.  Take Boo for example.  There's a whole lotta' area to cover there, I can tell you.  Sort of like trying to canopy the Gobi Desert.  Can you imagine?  Wait.  I'm getting off track.  So sorry.  It's just such an immense thought.

Anyway, back to the Brief and Breathless.  Yes, he went to a Doll Show.  Why?  Who knows what reasoning lurks in the heart and mind of the Cramped and Cold?  I don't know about you, but t'is most certainly a puzzlement to me.

However, while there, our intrepid Infantile and Inert met up with a couple of the Goatmother's friends, one of which is a survivor just like the Goatmother.  And survivors they are, of the highest order!  A wonderful lady, to be sure, full of grace and wit.  And the other friend is a fabulous soul as well.  Lucky Goatmother to know these two, and lucky Wee and Wasted to get to have his picture taken with them.


I think the Goatmother's friend was actually trying to fix him up with that Midge doll.  He has a thing for redheads.  Anyway, that Mini Masher had quite a time at the Doll Show.  Below you can see that he managed to drum up quite a few prospects at the lovely two-headed ladies' table.

And of course he felt right at home here.  See the coffin there in the lower right hand corner?  I can tell you he had his eye on that.  Can you say C.O.V.E.T.?

So there you have it.  You can breathe easy now.  You won't have to hear anymore about the Cute and Cadaverous' adventures for at least another whole year.  I know I'm relieved. 

"Life is either a great adventure or nothing."  - Helen Keller

I'm not sure exactly how that fits in with someone who has no life, but, hay, at least he has the adventure part down pat.

Now then.  Be sure to tune in on Halloween day because you will see one of the scariest things you will ever encounter.  Be afraid. Be very afraid.

It looks as though The Little UnDead was truly in his element at the doll show! ;-)
I'm looking forward to some scariness for Halloween!

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
To be sure, he was in his element. That is if your element is stupidity. I'm just sayin' ...
Okay, now. I sure hope you can handle the scary Halloween post. Oooooooo!

So is Boo short for Boo-tay?

I hope the Runty and Rigor-Mortised (which makes him sound like some kind of undersized carpentry project) behaved himself amongst the dolls. I must say he looks a perfect gentleman, but you never can tell with a guy who wears his tux in the daytime.

And guess what? You've disappeared off my "Follow" list AGAIN. Luckily I saw your post in the blogroll at the side of the blog page. I'm starting to find the blogroll a more reliable guide than the so-called "Reading List" on the Booger - I mean Blogger - home page. Aaugh!

More super photos!!!!

Btw, have I told you how ding-dang-happy I am, to see you making use of your wonderful new photography skills? Hmmmmm? Oh yes, I have. -giggggles-

Well, I am! Pretty Blog Land can never have too many great photographers! "Auntie" sezzzzzz...

(who came through the storm, intact. :-))

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
Ahhhhh! I suppose I better look to see if you have disappeared off mine again! It is a good thing that we are smarter than Booger, don't you think?

As for Boo...deifinitely Boo-tay. Her real name, though, is Tickety-boo.

And the little carpentry project? I have to admit it probably isn't a wise thing to trust someone who wears a Tux in the day ... all the time, for that matter. But I do think he behaved himself in this instance. Likely because there were witnesses. On the other hand, he probably isn't smart enough to misbehave. I'm just sayin' ...

Marigold said...

Dear Auntie,
So glad to hear you made it through the storm intact. Did you keep the Peanuts dry???

Kelly said...

Do you think the Undead and his friends danced while you werent looking? The Tango maybe? Looking forward to the Halloween post.

Marigold said...

Dear Kelly,
I dunno'...he has the clothes for it. But not the complexion.

J (outspoken) said...

Who us...tired of Lil Undead adventures??? Are you kidding me? Move over, Marigold, the world needs the stuffed chap's perspective.

Tell Midge to watch her back.

Marigold said...

Dear J,
Well aren't you the glutton for punishment? :) I think Midge needs to watch her neck more than her back, don't you?

Millie said...

He really did seem to find a place where he might fit in.

Marigold said...

Dear Millie,
I know. Who knew such a place even existed? :)
