Fourth of July Party 2018, Part 5 (Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4)
After ping pong and air hockey, it was time for a break! Bucky was very worried I was going to steal his precious tennis ball, but I was far more interested in Bucky’s beautiful, soft hair. Much to my disappointment, Mom and friend gckaf wouldn’t let me burrow into Bucky’s hair, so I had to settle for admiring it from afar!
* Important Note: Bucky and I were both very closely supervised at all times, and friend gckaf kept a firm hold on Bucky the whole time. Please do not ever let your furbeasts and tortles hang out together unsupervised!
A party wouldn’t be a party without fun and games! After my excellent job guarding mini Bucky, I got to learn a new game: ping pong! Friend gckaf’s ping pong ball confused me: What’s a ping pong ball doing looking like a soccer ball???
Mom tried to teach me how to hold a ping pong paddle, but I was far more interested in the ping pong table itself. The net in the middle of the table was just high enough for my head and front leggies to fit under, but try as I might, I couldn’t fit the rest of me under the net! Out of my way, silly net!!
Bucky, do you see how rude this net is being?! How dare it not make way for someone as important as I am?!
Be nice, Bucky! No ripping off mini Bucky’s head!!
After Bucky’s overenthusiastic welcome, friend gckaf gave mini Bucky to me for the rest of the party. I did an excellent job guarding mini Bucky by jumping off the edge not once, but twice! For some reason, that made Mom upset, so I stopped jumping and discovered that mini Bucky makes an excellent cave for a tiny tortoise like me!
