Wordy Wednesday - FFHT

Because of the holidays Murphy and Stanley are holding their FFHT today. The challenge is to use the target sentence (and for December there are two sentences) in a post.

Here we go!

It was Christmas Eve and Hailey and Zaphod were pacing, waiting for Santa.

Hailey: "He is never coming."
Phod: "Maybe we have been so naughty he won't come."
Lady: "You have both been very good pups. But I think you should know, Santa only comes to houses where the pups are sleeping."

Quickly both Lee and Phod curled up and went to sleep.

Phod feel into the deep sleep of a pup who listens very well. Lee on the other hand was plagued with dreams. In her dream, she and Phod were elves, working with Santa in the North Pole. It was their job to wrap the gifts for all the good kitties in the world, which was ALL the kitties in the world.

While wrapping the 87 millionth cat nip mouse, Hailey asked the elves, why all kitties get gifts. She knows some kitties were a bit evil. The elves laughed and laughed and laughed and then the chubby elf says "Santa leaves all kitties gifts whether good or bad because he knows if he doesn't he will get covered with scratches and bites and would have to go to the hospital and wouldn't be able to finish his deliveries. It is safer for him to just put them all on the nice list."

Hailey sighed. It explained why threatening Baggy with the loss of Santa never worked. For a brief moment she thought maybe she would like to be a cat so she could act however she wanted and would still get gifts. Then she remembered she couldn't go outside as much as she was a cat and decided she would try and be a good dog instead.

  17. Dear Lee and Phod,

    That is a very nice story. Lee, it is always better to be a Dog, don't you think? (When we cough up something we get to eat it again! We make more fur for the blankets and beds! And also, yes, we get to go outside more!)

    Also Lee you do not look very happy as an elf. You should stay a Dog.

    Merry Christmas friends!
