I've Got the Blues: Part 2


Rattus: So, my dear rat, you can explain (1) why you didn't bat an eyelash when I told you Gretta was having a free blueberry pie breakfast, instead of your usually hooping and hollering, (2) how Gretta's blueberry pies mysteriously turned up missing, and (3) why you're covered blue from head to toe? OK, start 'splaining.

Tea Rat: Uh, I woke up feeling blue? You know, down and....

Rattus: I know what blue means. Uh...uh. Try again.

Tea Rat: Don't believe that one? Oh, I know, I know. I was a stand-in for the Blue Rat Group that's touring Nowhere?

Rattus: As a rule, never make an explanation sound like a question. It's a dead give away. Now try again.

Tea Rat: Ooo...ooo, I got it. It's YOU who woke up in a blue mood and are seeing blue everywhere.

Rattus: ..........

Tea Rat: Oh, all right. I'll fess up. I cannot tell a lie. I went swimming in the Blue Danube? ........ Nnow...now Rattus, put ddown that fffork... I'm not pplaying. ...


OH WELL. TIME FOR MY MORNING JOG ANYWAY! GANGWAY!

Well, being blue isn't so bad. In my teddy bear world there are plenty of "blue" bears. Not sad blue, but mohair blue. (o:
