Brutus

This week’s photo prompt is provided by H.R.R. Gorman. Thank you H.R.R.!

“Do not let Brutus in the bathroom.” I stumble through the words. Remembering how slow and clearly Alicia spoke then to me. “Do not let Brutus in the bathroom.”

The stringy feline rubs against my leg. He cries as he runs a figure eight around me. Apparently he wants me to admire his labor of love. I’m trying to think of where to start cleaning it all up. Toilet paper strewn under the sheets just adds to the expertise of this animal.

“Brutus! What did you do? She’ll kill me for this!” I pull my hair back with my palm. I wonder how to cover it all up.

He looks up at me and meows. His right paw slightly lifted as if to point out the crime scene.

      1. Mark, I just found out today that InLinkz is doubling the price of their membership and I am not going to pay that. There won’t be anymore FFfAW challenges. I sure have enjoyed getting to know you.
