no way sweetheart

i was in one of my moods.  under no circumstances was i going to entertain the pet humans for cheap what-nots and snuggles. no way sweetheart, find someone else to make your day.

i took the pet human to the mall first, and didn't ~wiggle~  and then to the office supply joint to pick up some paper.  any self respecting swashbuckling pirate wizard writer ferret needs a few reams of paper.  no snuggles there, too stuffy, too business like for my sullen attitude. nope, wasn't gonna' do it

rolling my eyes, we pulled into the grocer.  "i am doing as the therapist suggests sammy, and i am not buying anything but eggs and bread today"

i might as well have been left in the car.  if i can't buy what i want, why bring me? doesn't the world revolve around me?

"OH MY GOODNESS IT'S SAM!!"  the high pitched voice was shocking on the best of days, today it was an instant assault upon my lil 'ol skullbones.... she tried to entice me wif a plastic pack of something or other.

the pet human said, "sammy's not himself"

"oh, really?" as she gave me a cheek pinch.

the grocery manager came over, with a shiny wrapper.  "here sammy, your favorite"

i gave a tiny ~wiggle~  only by the hardest

"IT'S THE MOST FAMOUS FERRET ON THE PLANET!!!" another clerk, who slobbered me wif a kiss

i gave two ~wiggles~

then a spinny move as i jumped on the pet human's shoulder.  a remarkable effort, as it involved the physical combined wif da spiritual -  impressing all of the humans with my gymnast's skills - they all smiled and laughed as i made their collective day. i was back to my normal self

proving once again, that happiness is a choice we must keep on making, over and over, moment by moment

  1. That is SO TRUE, Sammy! Feeling a bit blue today, myself, so thanks a bunch for the smile.

    Have a great weekend :)


    1. ferrets don't often feel blue, it's usually an off shade of magenta, or possibly tangerine orange. i once rolled a bag of tangerines across da living room, impressing the dog, cat and da pet human with my skills. the dog of course thought they were balls, and some inner compulsion, probably millions of years in the making compelled him to join in.

      i had to give him "da look" and banished him to da sofa.

  2. Sam, you always make me smile. You're my go-to for some wiggles, love, and perspective.

    1. sometimes brevity is a virtue. i didn't want to dwell long on this story, just tell it about as fast as it happens. wallowing in misery has never been where i wanted to be anyway. thanks for stopping by!!! probably one you can read to the kids. and the last few, as well. they'd probably like the two hound stories from last week. (hint)

  3. Some days you just have to follow your awesome instincts; and be the super hero ferret you are ~~wiggle~wiggle~wiggle~~
    P.S Any chance of a visit to a supermarket near me????

    1. i'm supposed to travel to some exotic island to do my OCD shopping? i wunder what da therapist and pet human would think of dat?

      well, i guess it's not too difficult, after all, i do have that magic flower pot...

      why just the other day, i dug my way to.......

    2. Even given your extraordinary abilities, the aid of the magic flower pot, tunneling the Atlantic could be taxing. Despite arrival via this route conferring yet another distinctive title upon your awesomeness "first ferret in all time to tunnel so far". The "da pet human" would benefit from a leisurely cruise to the island's...Remember the sun hat & shades to dodge the paparazzi

  4. I dont have to work at all on a smile or the happiness you bring me... thank-you for your friendship...your my forever friend....

    1. i don't want to lose my ferret wizard union card by commenting to annonymous, but hey, i pay my dues

  5. Got pleasure o reading this ~ this morning, needed to stop by tonight and comment on your wee tiny soft furry & slick awesomeness. Put my ferret love for you right on your favorite sock in the sock drawer you snuggly nap in. At anytime you feelin the least bit weary, take a snn snn snniff, and say to yourself "oh this is that sweet old lady who loves me scent, I know I must be very important!" ~wiggle~ xoxo luv g-ma. Ima @grammakaye on twitter.

    1. i sometimes crawl up in a lap, and fall asleep. and the poor soul doesn't know whether to wake me, or leave me be. it is sometimes better to just put me in da sock drawer. i like the soft left footed ones.

  6. Great post, Sammy. And we can't make anyone else happy, either. That's why I tell my son, "Find a happy girl, because you will never make a girl happy if she isn't inclined to be."

    So glad you got your wiggle back. I know it's not always easy to do. :)

  7. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
