Susan of the Forest

Whenever Shaun can’t find me right away, he starts calling for me in a very pathetic sort of way.  “Suuuuuuuzzzzzzzzzzyyyyyyy” he calls.  “Oh Suuuuuzzzzzzyyyyyyyyyy ….where are yooouuuuuuuu…..” I almost always choose to ignore him.  This is partly because of  a blend of contrariness, amusement, perhaps a smidge of embarrassment and the desire to be left alone. 

This evening, I heard Shaun hollering for me upstairs.  Of course, I couldn’t hear him.  I was extremely busy watching the only television show I watch.  (and it’s really dumb so I’m not saying what it is!  Although I will say that I’m rooting for Lance…or maybe Warren, I’m not sure)  Eventually, Shaun exhausted his search upstairs where I usually am, and after a quick peek to make sure my Jeep was still there, headed downstairs. 

He came around the corner and just stared at me for a moment before breaking into manical laughter.  I’m quite used to this odd behavior from the man I married so I patiently paused my show and waited for him to calm himself. 

Shaun finally told me that I looked just like Snow White sitting in the forest with cute little birds perched on her and all the woodland creatures gathered around her. 



To be honest, I just looked at him like he was nuts. (Yes, he gets that look quite often from me!)  Then I looked around and thought that maybe he might have a point.  I didn’t have any birds singing to me, but there were a couple cats curled up on top of me.  There was a guinea pig peacefully nibbling on her lettuce by my side.  One dog was nestled right up against me while the other was at my feet along with yet another cat. 

I found myself giggling along with my husband.   In fact, his silly observation lifted my mood so much that I invited him to join me.  He took one look at what I was watching and instantly realized that he had something very, very, very important to be doing. 

So much for the first of my band of merry men.  I guess I’ll just have to settle with being Princess of the Woodland Domestic Creatures….
