Fourth of July Party 2018, Part 4
(Parts 12, and 3)

After ping pong, it was time for air hockey!  I weigh far too much now to glide around like an air hockey puck!  Mom thought I would like the bright white table, but I did not like that table at all.  It felt awful on my toes!!  Almost as awful as Dr. B.’s examining table!

I did, however, like the edges of the table.  They are perfect for digging and climbing!

(Parts 1 and 2)

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?!

Bucky loved his mini me!  In fact, Bucky loved his mini me a little too much:

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!

This year, ahead of friend @gckaf’s annual Fourth of July BBQ, I found a mini me for friendbeast Bucky!  Mini Bucky has beautiful soft hair colored just like Bucky’s and let me ride on top of his head, just like Bucky!  Plus, mini Bucky has delicious white toes!

Bonus:  Mini Bucky doesn’t mind at all when I try to nom his yummy toes!

image

Why is it that all the yummy things aren’t supposed to be nommed?!

image

Mini Bucky, I command you to take me to the place where Mom hides all my noms!

image

Uh oh, mini Bucky’s pretty hair is slippery…

This is a much better perch!

Okay, mini Bucky, let’s go find all the noms!

How to Approach a Turtle

thatsbelievable:

STEP ONE: Move slowly, almost imperceptibly. The turtle will interpret any sudden movement as an attack, and respond accordingly.

STEP TWO: Greet the turtle in its native language. If you don’t know the turtle’s native language, then learn it.

STEP THREE: Present your offering to the turtle. Standard offerings include lettuce, carrots, or, if you forgot to bring an offering, yourself.

STEP FOUR: Pray — PRAY — that the turtle accepts your offering. If it does, then you will enjoy a long, happy life of peaceful co-existence.

STEP FIVE: If it doesn’t, well, the alternative is too terrible to contemplate.

Accurate! Especially the part about the offering. 

Mine has been accepted! Phew!
