Mommy and I spent most of last week hanging out, just the two of us, because Daddy was out-of-town for business. We had a lot of fun, but I wish she played with me more. All she wanted to do was read. Boring!
Friday afternoon, Mommy came home early from work and she and I hopped in the car. We went to the airport to go pick up Daddy. However, when we got there, Mommy noticed that she had a text message from him. Apparently, his flight was delayed by 45 minutes. Although his message wasn't very clear on how long he was delayed or when his flight was due. So, not wanting to drive all the way home just-in-case Daddy wasn't delayed that long, Mommy decided to look for a place to park the car.
As the sky darkened and threatened to storm, Mommy realized we might be waiting awhile for Daddy's flight to come in. So, we went to McDonald's. We pulled in at the drive-thru and Mommy ordered a small box of chicken nuggets. I was kind of mad at her for not buying me any. Then she parked the car and took the box out-of the bag. She better share that with me!
Mommy picked up a nugget tore a piece off and told me to sit. I sat. Sort of. I lowered my front paws down on the console in between the two front seats. I guess it was good enough because after a few seconds the lightly fried, tender piece of chicken was sitting in a pile of mush in my stomach. Yummy!
Mommy kept tearing off little pieces of chicken and hand-fed me the pieces. I kept waiting for her to give me the entire nugget, but that never came, just the tiny little pieces. We sat in the car for half-an-hour while the rain poured. It thundered a little, but nothing serious to get me worried. When Mommy first turned the car off, I danced around the car for a few seconds to figure out where the loud jet engines were coming from. I ducked my head a few times, but then I realized they posed no threat. I was also more interested in my chicken nuggets.
It finally stopped raining and when I finished MY whole box of chicken nuggets, Mommy and I drove around for a little bit. About an hour later, Daddy's plane finally landed and soon we were headed home.
I can't wait to go with Mommy to pick up Daddy from the airport again. I also hope we can go to McDonald's more often. Next time, I'm getting a cheeseburger.
