Unnecessary Roughness

Hu-Dad tried to throw a flag on this play and claim unnecessary roughness. Let’s watch the instant replay so our readers can decide.

Look at Hu-Dad, all peaceful in the chaise lounge.

Look at Hu-Dad, all peaceful in the chaise lounge.

We had a pleasant, sunny day yesterday, so Hu-Dad sat outside for a while in a chaise lounge. He was quite comfortable and Qannik thought he would like a little company.

Mind if I get up here?

Of course, Q-Tip might have forgotten to announce his intentions in advance. And he might have leapt through the air. And he might have landed on top of the Hu-Dad.

Why are you making all of those funny noises, Hu-Dad?

For some odd reason, Hu-Dad had a hard time expressing himself. Something about a lack of air in his lungs because 55 pounds of cotton ball had just landed on his chest.

You mean I am not soft and cuddly when I am coming in feet first?

    Qannik ( oh what a name) looks so innocent. I can see the story unfolding. Qannik was just looking for some fun.

    Mom sez: We know what that feels like. Roy doesn’t call Ebby “his little Fur Bomb” for nothing. And she’s lighter than Qannik.
