Spooktacular Giveaway -- and continuing with my creepy list

Welcome to the giveaway --- details and cool stuff are in the sidebar on the right. Woo hoo!

See previous posts for scary things  #7-10 by scrolling below.

To recap, I'm counting down the Top Ten Things that Scare the (insert expletive of your choice) Out of Me


6. My sister’s cat.

My sister’s cat is what Billy Bob Thorton would be if he were a cat. It’s one of those cats that is so sweet, kind, gentle…purrs up to you… leans lovingly against your hand…. gives a sweet ‘meow,’ as you lean close to it….
…then it scratches your face off.

Actually, I don’t know if Billy Bob Thornton does that…but I’m sure he could if he wanted to…

Case in point: On Dec. 24, I was staying in my sister’s guest room and the cat (ironically, named “Baby”) was snuggling up to me and purring in that way that cats do. I felt this was a breakthrough in our relationship (I actually do like cats) and so I was very thankful...
"Baby" hijacks my suitcase during a visit to my sister's. 



...but at 12:01 Christmas morning, the cat got on the floor (within easy smelling range of me) and hacked up the nastiest, smelliest, most disgusting furball I've ever seen/ heard/ experienced in my life. Then the cat looked at me as if to say, "Merry Christmas, you stupid b--"

Once I just looked at the cat and he hissed. The cat will snuggle up to me. "Love me" he seems to say, then, when I attempt to pet him--and I am not kidding-- he once slapped me so hard my glasses flew to the other side of the room.

I know he's trying to kill me.

I hate this cat. Wait, what I meant to say was....
....I hate this cat.

Put Bob Saget, a creepy puppet, the cat and me all in a parking garage and it’s my own ninth circle of hell.

Tune in tomorrow for #5...

Hey Dawn, I remember you telling me about Bob Saget and how you hardly ever park in parking garages but I had completely forgotten about the cat from hell! I'm sorry but I just had to laugh at the egregious furball incident and now I'm real curious to see what (or who) is next on the list. I love your writing as usual :)

I hope I can guess on this list. I going to guess your #1 is the swamp monster. I narrowed it down to that and big foot. Thanks

Thanks for the comments guys.

Holly-- you are soooo close.
So close in fact that I'm going to give you another hint....
The movie that involved my "monster" starred Richard Gere....

Jack--- Don't let that cat's sweet face fool you. He wants to take you down. I have another funny story about how the cat ambushed me while I was in the bathroom...

I think cats are cute, but can be scary too. That's why it's called catty when someone's being mean, right? Anyway, I can't get too near them since I'm allergic. I do have 2 crazy & endearing dogs though. Life is never dull.

Geschuman: Yes, cats can be scary---very, very, very scary.

Once I went to the bathroom, and Baby just jumped right up in my lap. I knew that was the end---he had waited until my pants were down--literally--and then he was going to kill me.

I survived that one, but don't let his cuteness fool you...
...he is evil. Pure evil.

Thanks guys for the follow---be expecting a coupon code in the e-mail.

OMG,that's just way too close.Good thing you were already in the bathroom. I think looking at that picture is part of what makes this so funny :) they should have named him Damien or something!

Dawn said...

Baby is saying, "It's my suitcase now you #@%-ing, b-@#$@#."
