In Reply to: Soldier #2 Pulls a Big Surprise! posted by MMMMarcia on April 05, 1999 at 09:39:30:
: Good morning, fellow Mohicanlanders! This is by way of warning to any of you who might be tempted to stay in bed late in the mornings...you never know where our clever Soldier #2 is going to show up! Imagine my surprise when I rolled my lazy ol' self out of the bed this morning at the sound of my doorbell, and found Eric & kids standing outside! I quickly kicked the orange peels & dustbunnies out of the way, threw on a pair of shorts & t-shirt, and commenced giving hugs all around. I think they believed my story that the house had been ransacked by a gang of hoodlums during the night, and I was only sleeping in because I had been up late working on the plans for my Time Travel Machine. (I DID see young Matthew giving me a skeptical glance when I presented this excuse for the deplorable conditions in the house & my rumpled appearance, but I bribed him to silence by letting him hold my biggest sweaty parrots, which seemed to work.)
: So, let that be a lesson to all slug-a-beds and sleepyheads...Soldier #2 WILL find you, no matter how long it takes, no matter how far...he WILL find you!
: A Chagrined but Very Pleased MMMM
: PS...Eric says Hello to all his Mohican Maniac friends. This is the first vacation he's had in 12 years, and he's enjoying it tremendously! It was a treat to see him!
Soldier #2 pulled that on us once too. Is he sadistic, you think?
We looked at him, looked at the disarray (much worse than orange peels), looked at him again, and said; "Burn it." It's much easier!!!
Enjoy your next visit, for which, I'm sure, you'll be all dolled up!
