The Reason For The Refusal

When you look at how sweet Frankie Suave and his little brother Boom Boom are, you have to wonder why the refusal yesterday to model.

You aren't going to make us wear solar eclipse glasses, are you?

If you enjoyed yesterday’s post, you probably wonder why everyone did not participate. All the photos of Qannik were a giant white (fluffy) blur as he shook his head furiously to throw the dreaded glasses off.

Frankie and Boom Boom, however, were worse. They took one look and ran off into the yard, refusing even to get near them. Hu-Dad wondered why they refused so strongly and then he realized how sophisticated the two of them like to act. The cardboard glasses were simply beneath their dignity!

We are too sophisticated for cardboard glasses. Get us Ray-Bans!

    I think you are correct and I love it. I can just see how insulted Frankie would be that you wanted him to wear cardboard sunglasses. Of course, his adoring litter brother would follow his lead. What a pair, they are wonderful and have a taste for the finer things in live.
