Who dunnit? Starting my week with the Yeah Write Gargleblaster

Yawning, shuffling, noticing the avocado on the floor.
Stretching, recalling, confirming that I left it on the counter last night.
I look at the cat. I look at the boyfriend. They look at each other.
The cat saunters out.
We all know.ย 

This week’s 42-word flash-anything prompt is: Who dunnit? Pour yourself a tall glass of the best drink in existence and click above to check out the challenge!

  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  2. Oh god!! I had this cat when I was a kid who would poise himself above something of value (especially if he perceived himself neglected) and crouch there, waiting for me to look. I usually said something idiotic like “Knock it off”. And he did. Every single time. He knocked off vases and stuffed animals, snow globes and musical instruments. And then he hopped down and rubbed against my legs in a provocative way that suggested that next time things would be worse if the cat didn’t get some attention.

  3. The cat was framed! ๐Ÿ™‚ I almost wrote about my cats, who are pretty good about playing innocent. They are the perfect subjects for a whodunnit. Thanks for linking up with the gargleblaster!

  4. Hmmm… usually I’d say when a cat was involved it’s probably the cat, but this time, it seems the cat tells a different story (and cats own up to their mischievousness!)

    1. Hehe. I’m still leaning toward cat. She has more of an interest in knocking stuff off counters than boyfriend does. Sometimes she’ll knock something over and then meow at me like it’s my fault.

    1. Thanks! I can’t imagine having more little cyclones running around here. Do your kids try to blame the cat? Boyfriend does that sometimes.

    1. Thanks! There are so many ways you can go with every prompt; this one just came naturally because it happened over the weekend!

  5. We have a kitten and a toddler in the house at the moment. It can be a little difficult at times to accurately attribute all the random weirdness. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I bet! I am definitely not ready for another potential culprit in the house. Especially one that can talk back in the same language.
