Monday Mario

Dear Devoted Mario Fans,

Hello!  It's me, Mario!!  That's right.  After years of being represented in sometimes unflattering ways, I've been allowed to finally pen a post for all of you.  I'm not sure what took so long since after all, I am the main star of this little corner of the blogosphere.

I wanted to tell you about one of my cool Christmas gifts I got this past holiday.  I received lots of gifts and I acted surprised when The Biped opened them in front of me even though she also wrapped them up in front of me a week or so prior.  Sometimes those bipeds have such a short memory but I play along to amuse them.

I know you can tell, but this is my Christmas day "I'm surprised!!" face.  I'm still waiting for my Oscar nomination.  And that wet stuff on my fur is not a puzzling medical mystery but really a tear of joy for my new acquisitions.

Any-hoo, back to my post.  One of my favorite gifts was...

Hay topper!

I love me my hay topper!  First off, it means my litter box got cleaned.  Let's face it.  No one likes a dirty L'box.  Second, it adds a delightful floral scent to my L'Box which is quite lovely.  I may not look it, but I appreciate the finer things in life.  Third, don't you love the pop of color it provides?  Hay is notoriously green and it gets a little boring.  Fourth, this stuff tastes ah-maaaa-zing!  The way to my heart is clearly through my stomach.

Look at that. A clean, sweet smelling, colorful, candy filled L'box!

So the other weekend The Biped hooked me up with the above treat and wished me an early Happy New Year.  Apparently The Two Bipeds were nipping off for a short weekend getaway.  I was a bit ticked at not being invited, but I had a long weekend to-do list involving various takes on "Sit Around and Look Utterly Cute."  I spend a lot of time thinking of new ways to achieve this and I figured it was best I didn't fill up my weekend with extra activities.

When they returned, there was much happiness and I was told all about how The Two Bipeds had received some sort of hay topper of their own.  I was reminded about a top secret conversation I had with the male Biped when he told me he was getting some special carrots a couple of weeks earlier.

If you ask me, my hay topper is much more inviting.  Hay topper was not meant to be illuminated with romantic light sources.

I inquired how these special carrots and hay topper tasted and since they didn't respond, I can only deduce that no one bothered to taste either of these delectable treats.  Oh, the travesty!!  For the record, the moment I get hay topper I dive right into the L'box.  And I get a tasty carrot every night and it is the first thing I enjoy out of my evening salad.

Here I am feasting on the previously pictured hay topper.  No waste here.

I am unimpressed with this new development.  The word, "fianced" is being thrown around quite a bit over here.  I surmise I won't be invited to whatever they are discussing which is probably for the best.  I am pretty busy perfecting the Art of Looking Cute at all hours of the day.  There is some joke about putting me in a little top hat and bow-tie and forcing me to abandon Operation Look Cute for a day, but I'm going to thump loudly if that ever comes to fruition.

So there you are.  My short story about my favorite Christmas gift.  I'm off to take a nap while still maintaining an elevated cute-factor which is a higher level skill that took years to master.

Nose bumps and fur balls,
Mario
