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

You Better Watch Out

* Warning and Disclaimer - the post you are about to see may be grammatically damaging.  It may, or may not, but probably most likely will, consist of possibly the longest run-on sentence in the history of writing.

There.  You have been warned.  You have no one to blame but yourself if you stay and end up screaming from the room into the night.

The Goatmother has had a cold, which she hasn't had since 2004 (quite literally), which has resulted in her sitting for hours on end in front of the computer with a dull, blank and miserable look on her face, which has caused the Goatfather, in fear, to go into hiding in front of his computer, which has made it virtually impossible for any self-respecting talented Caprine scribe to get near any computer, which has resulted in a dry period occurring in the posting on said scribe's blog, which is why this run-on sentence is appearing since haste is a complete necessity before someone returns from the bathroom and reclaims their seat.

I warned you.  Please stay tuned as soon a Caprine Christmas tale will be appearing on a computer monitor near you. Maybe.  If I can get near one myself.  Oy.

What a riot! Marigold, we may have to get you an iPhone so you may cheat like me when all computers are occupied!

Seriously, I hope the Goatmother gets feeling better soon. The Lizard has had a sinus infection for 23 days now, so I empathize with her and hope the germs find another hiding place, preferably on another planet. Permanently.

Fix the Goatmother a nice cup of hot tea with lemon and honey Marigold and tell her I hope she gets to feeling better soon! You might even offer her a peanut. It's no fun to have a cold. :(

Would peanuts help.....?

Dear SnowCatcher,
I love you. :)

Dear Candy,
This gives me a grand idea! I can use a Peanut (though it will be hard to sacrifice one) to lure the Goatmother AWAY from the computer. This could work!

Marigold said...

Dear MiMi,
Peanuts ALWAYS help. Oh. You mean the Goatmother, huh?

Marigold, what you need is a Goatbook. Or a netbook. Or some kind of small computer of your very own. What are the Goatparents thinking, hogging the computers like that, when there are important posts to be written?

Millie said...

Glad you managed to find a computer to let us know what was going on. Those humans. Hope yours is feeling better soon.

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
Yeah. What you said!

Dear Millie,
Me too. It's like living with a Zombie and Halloween is SO over for this year!
