Not Sleeping Here

Despite what it might look like, Frankie Suave would like to clarify that he is not sleeping here in Hu-Dad’s study while important busyness happens.

Who? Me? Asleep? No way. Not sleeping here,
Who? Me? Asleep? No way.

Been something of a busy week for the Hu-Dad which means it’s been something of a boring week for us. Frankie Suave, though, would like to make it crystal clear that he was not sleeping here no matter how much it looks like Hu-Dad startled him by coming back into the study. Nope, Mr. Suave is wide awake, totally alert, and absolutely not using the desk leg as a pillow.

    Somebody has to keep an eye on Hu-Dad.

    Uh-OH Mr Suave-I THINK you were caught napping! The head on a desk leg is NOTHING unusual either!
