Girl, Interrupted

"Suzie! Time for dinner!"

"Okay!"

Scuffle scuffle run run run blam! In the chair.

"Did you wash your hands?"

"Aw, Mom, I'm hungry!"

"I don't care, wash your hands."

"Mom..."

"Wash."

Chair scooch. Stomp stomp stomp. Splash.

"Good. Did you pick up your toys?"

"........" 
Towel flip. 
"........Yup."

 "Fine. Let's eat."

Did Boz just eat a child and spit out the plastic bits?

Clifford Beshers said...

Or did John leave those in his wake?

That beautiful wall just missed its chance to be decorated by a master!

LOLfromPasa said...

Priceless...and I am referring to the comments :). BTW, a super photo too.

John S takes a hike

Petrea Burchard said...

Dive: Yes, Boz is a known man-killer in the 'hood.

Cliff: Yes.

Desiree said...

I hope dessert was served.

Bellis said...

I'm enjoying Zen Monday on Wednesday. Well done, Dive! And I like the title. PS I thought it was religious hipster confetti.

TheChieftess said...

Haha!!! You eavesdropper you!!!

Love the photo!

Petrea Burchard said...

It could be, but there were little ghosts, too, or aliens, scattered further down. Way to confuse the kid.

Petrea Burchard said...

Sorry, Chieftess, I was typing while you were hitting "enter."

Deb said...

Very responsible of Boz to take his human out on a lead, can't be too careful with all those vampires about......

LONDONLULU said...

The nicest untidy pile I've seen, Boz, what have you been up to?:)

Petrea Burchard said...

Boz lets us go free on our own block Deb, but beyond that he has his rules.

Lulu, strangely he wasn't nearly as interested in the untidy pile as I was.

Ms M said...

Great post and fun comments! And it's always good to see Boz & John -- even if in the distance.

Margaret said...

I love coming upon scenes like that. But I don't believe the Susie part. No one under 40 is named Susie these days. Alas. Maybe is is ready for a comeback

Trish said...

I suspect John scared the poop outta some kids and this was all that was left behind. I know Boz didn't do it, he was just checking his block to be sure everything was ok. Was ok until Dad went and messed it all up. What'd he do, show some scary movie to the 5 year olds?!?!

Sheesh John! They are right, Boz DOES need to keep you on a leash!

Petrea Burchard said...

It's always good to see you, too, Ms. M.

It's a pseudonym, Margaret. I didn't want to get her in trouble.

Trish, we didn't do it! I swear!

I like found objects, but I like found comments even better. (Girl, Interrupted -- gosh, I loved that book.)

John Sandel said...

You people have no idea.

Trish said...

John---I think we have an idea. Some of us have some couth and wouldn't post THAT here.

Trish said...

Petrea-so you're saying John shat the crosses and other bits out? Doesn't Boz know to pick up after his human?

Petrea Burchard said...

I've looked back through my comments and can't think what gave you that idea, Trish. These are little toys. John produces gold and fire.
