Looking Up

Natasha came into my bedroom on Saturday morning, while I was getting ready to meet a friend for breakfast.

We started talking about the heat outside and the A/C inside and then Natasha looked up and saw something crawling across the ceiling. She thought it a spider, but it wasn’t, and never mind about that. Ziva was laying on the bed, per standard, and Natasha said to her…

“Why aren’t you looking up?”

The admonishment continued…

“You should be looking up or attacking or pointing or something!”

I laughed.

I knelt down next to the queen-size mattress, put the side of my face on the comforter and proclaimed that this is the vista Ziva most often sees.

The bed. Her bed.

It’s a view of the place where Ziva sleeps her life away. There’s no looking up except when she accidentally rolls onto her back or offers her belly to me as bait. There are no intentional upward glances to protect the humans from spiders or creepy, crawly bugs.

We’re on our own here.

Ziva, Queen of the Mattress

PS: This would have been my One-Liner Wednesday post of the week, except that I’m going to be out-of-town on business and not connected to WordPress peeps for most of the day. I’ll miss you! In the meantime, leave your comments for Ziva and I, and we’ll gladly respond in between her Tuesday naps.

This post has been brought to you by her majesty’s sleeping place. If you are wondering what “One-Liner Wednesday is all about, CLICK HERE.

    Ziva has you covered from about 40” to the floor? That’s still a lot of territory.

    I have to ask, what was up there and did anyone deal with it?

    I hope you travel safely and have a good trip.

      That she is. Her majesty only allows so many pets of her belly, then it’s off with my head or a kindly reminder of her royal paw and claw. πŸ˜‰

      Thanks Shelley. I’m taking a road trip to Madison for a one-day meeting. I’ll be back next Wednesday!

      Those are the imaginary bugs and things that turn out to be shadows and dark spots on the wall. We’re talking real bugs here.

      Well, no matter, she doesn’t really care either way…

  3. awww Mary, I cannot tell you how much I am wishing that someone had been around to take a video of this whole scene. I’m much amused now … a video would send me over the edge.
    Sending big love and squidges ~ Cobs. xxx
