Don’t Get Caught

13 Oct

Bongo on the CouchWhat do you mean, I need to hear this Bible story and it’s going to teach me a lesson?

I don’t need any lessons. I already know everything I need to know.

Okay, I’ll listen.

***

Jesus said, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?”

***

Oh, now I get it. You’re planning to put me in charge of Scratchy’s food allowance.

I’m listening with all ears now.

***

Jesus continued, “It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.”

***

This is a trick, isn’t it? To get me not to eat Scratchy’s food. If I actually give Scratchy his food, then I’ll get put in charge of everything. And I can eat all your food and my food too.

This is getting good.

***

Jesus said, “But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.”

***

Wait a minute. What are you saying?

You mean that if I get into mischief because I think you’re not coming home for awhile I might get into trouble?

You know Scratchy does all that stuff, don’t you?

Oh. You’re saying it’s like the times you came in when I wasn’t expecting you and you caught me sleeping on the couch.

Okay, I admit I slept on the couch once or twice.

But Scratchy still did all the rest of the stuff.

Maybe you could send Jesus to give Scratchy what for.

    Tell the truth, Bongo. You were only keeping the couch warm and safe from predators for your person, weren’t you?!!!

      Marina, that’s it! That’s what I was doing. I wish my person would be a little more understanding.

    Bongo, Bongo, Bongo – the couch is for people. Except when mama isn’t home. Marina understands this. You need an advocate to talk to mama for you. ‘Splain things.

      FleaByte, usually I get off before my person comes in the door – but sometimes I fall sound asleep and don’t hear her. That’s when I get into trouble. I think my person should understand, but she doesn’t.

      Kevin, it’s definitely Scratchy. He does all the mischief around here – and then blames it on me.
