Labour Over Box
Wanting to make sweet corn pudding in cute teddy bear shapes for the grandniece's belated birthday, EJ had to go to the supermarket to get the ingredients.
It was a Saturday. And imposed on every Saturday in Selangor state is "No Plastic Day". Free plastic bags will not be provided to customers by participating shopping centres and retailers. This is to educate and encourage shoppers to bring their own bags and change their habit of excessive use of plastic bags which are environmentally harmful.
EJ clean forgot about this "No Plastic Day" but was pleasantly surprised when a free cardboard box was offered at the payment counter to contain the stuff bought.
On reaching home, this free cardboard box became the cats' property. This was what happened.
Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK peeked with his one good eye from the box.
Tommy came along and decided that the best way to conquer the box was to just pounce on it with Captain Jack still inside. He's that dark patch just below Tommy's belly.
The minute Captain Jack jumped out, Tommy guarded the entrance.
Not giving up easily, Captain Jack made a turnaround and confronted Tommy. A staring contest ensued. Tommy stood his ground, more of sat his ground, till the fur on his spine spiked up like a dinosaur (stegosaurus). Those spikey furs did its job well.
In the foreground is Kenggy who did a perfect timing of shoving her butt at the camera just as EJ clicked.
Just as written on the box, Tommy laboured and enjoyed an all stretched-out relax.
