Sarah looked out her kitchen window and saw a beautiful Bluejay sitting on her mailbox. She took it as a sign of a good day.
She went back to her dining room, where she had already placed her hot cup of coffee and a plate of banana-nut pancakes. She sat down then realized she forgot the syrup on the breakfast island. She got up to get it and at that very moment heard a crash come from the living room. Startled, she yelled into the air, “Who’s there? I’m armed and dangerous”. She got no reply.
She walked into the living room and saw a mess near her stationery desk. Papers on the floor, envelopes ripped and scattered and her new bottle of ink on its side, slowly dripping blue ink onto her white carpet. As she took this sight in, out of the corner of her eye she saw a shadow disappear into the kitchen. Again she yelled into the air, “Who’s there?? I’m a cop”.
She walked back into the kitchen and saw her dog sitting on her seat and eating her pancakes. As she let out a sigh of relief, she giggled and said, “Oh Bob, you startled me you devious pup you. You could’ve just asked for pancakes you know!?”
