My Hero!

Last night we saw this dead Jerry in our car porch. It must be the works of Tom as the autopsy revealed that Jerry died from severe stab wounds caused by a sharp object (must be Tom’s bite!)Darling is afraid (geli) of all things furry. {Thank goodness I’m not a fur ball!} So yours truly had to execute the disposal mission. I took a garden spade, some old newspapers and a plastic bag.

I poke Jerry (with the spade) and that made me scream like mad. Why? Because Jerry was as hard as a rock! My knees went weak and I could not proceed. Darling came to give me the much needed moral support. He held my left hand and encouraged me to use my right hand to shove Jerry (using the spade) onto the newspaper and subsequently placing it into the plastic bag.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, DARLING! (Eyes rolling here)

Like a heroine in a blockbuster movie, I carried out the above mission successfully! But as soon as Jerry was in the plastic bag, I let go of everything and shouted SO loud {for the sake of releasing my bottled up fear!}. My legs went wobbly and Darling (the hero) took over. Like the ‘macho-est’ man in the world, he tied the plastic bag and disposed it into the garbage bin.
