I made Princess furious last night by totally ruining her moment of spectacular drama.
Handsome Prince and several others had trapped her and were taking turns giving her "love pats" on the rump. For some reason she didn't enjoy this as much as they did.
She finally freed herself and was just begining to roar her terrible roar as the others started heckling her--"C'mon, we didn't hurt you." "You little wus. It was just for fun..." Boys are a barrel of laughs sometimes.
Anyway, this was when I jumped in compassionately, and with my arm around her said, "Hey! You guys leave her alone! You did, too, hurt her--you hit her so hard that now her butt has a crack in it. Pull down your pants, honey, and show them what they did."
Before she could stop it, Princess exploded a giggle, and then all was lost and her fury wasn't as potent anymore. We all know that the most infuriating thing in the world is having someone make you laugh when you're trying to be angry.
Her night was ruined.
I crack me up sometimes.
