I Demand To Speak To The Manager

Uh-oh. The stomping of feet-feet and loud snorting can only mean that Typhoon will demand to speak to the manager.

I'll huff and I'll puff - I demand to speak to the manager
I’ll huff and I’ll puff

Hu-Dad never quite knows what will disturb the Little Prince, but he never doubts when the Royal Ire has been raised. Just look at the stomping feety-feet. The locked stare. The flaring nostrils. Someone is about to demand to speak to the manager and express some major displeasure.

P.S. – Have a Happy New Year! We will be taking tomorrow off, but will return with Hu-Dad’s Monday Musing and our regular post on Tuesday.

      We rarely know exactly what sets off a Prince. A breeze blowing in the wrong direction. A pillow not properly fluffed. Water bowls at not the correct precise temperature.

    Typhoon’s a hoot for sure! Happy New Year to all.

    The Little Prince truly looks like a force to be reckoned with! There’s nothing on earth like a displeased Husky!

    TOO funny but I wonder what got the Little Prince so upset??? He really does know how to show his displeasure. I hope he is no longer demanding something!

    Happy New Year to you and yours and all who comment on your pages!!!
