The Rogue Speaks:
STOP!! Before you ready any further, you must first go read Tennessee Mudbug's offering for Jenny's Saturday Centus. Then with a smile on your face and a tune running through your mind, you can read the rest of this post.
Roy was so proud of himself! He had just gotten a deal on a stylish pair of new shoes! After a couple of blocks, though, those shoes began to pinch a bit. Roy sat down on a park bench, took off his shoes, and set them on the ground beside him. He closed his eyes as he rubbed his sore feet.
When he opened his eyes, he saw a mangey alley cat gnawing on his new leather shoes! He grabbed his shoes and the cat took off running with Roy hot on his trail.
As he was coming out of the drygoods store, Mr. Tom T. Urkee saw his friend Roy dashing by. Fearing he had been mugged, Mr. Tom hurried to catch up with Roy. Poor Roy stopped, out of breath, just as Mr. Tom caught up. Roy told his friend his tale of woe.
While Roy was talking, Mr. Tom saw something moving out of the corner of his eye. "Pardon me," said Mr. Tom T. Urkee in his usual singsong voice, pointing to something in the alley. "Pardon me, Roy. Is that the cat who chewed your new shoes?"
Note: Just so you know, this is not my Saturday Centus. You'll have to scroll down to read that!!
