while i was at the hot dog festival, my friend rosie taught me a trick that i could use to get my tennis ball back from mom and dad - HYPNOSIS! see, i cuddle with mom and dad while watching tv, and lots of times they'll fall asleep. so i close my eyes and pretend that i'm asleep too! well, rosie told me to whisper to mom and dad while they're asleep so they would give me my ball back! it didn't work on mom - she sleep-talks, and we ended up talking about the circus instead of my ball! dad responded better after i put my paws on his lips to stop his snoring - then he could hear me! when dad woke up, he tipped the ball off the table and onto the floor, where bigbluedragon (BBD) could swoop down and lay on top of it for me so. now that's teamwork!
