Dramatis Personae

  • The Writer Monkey, in the Fortress of Solitude, locked in mortal combat with Infernal Editor over a piece of short fiction
  • The Code Monkey, in The Cave, locked in mortal combat with Infernal Klingons, or possibly storm troopers.
  • Thing One and Thing Two, collectively known as the Ninja Katz. Remember Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer from Cats? Yeah, those two.


The Action:

Yowling from Thing One, who is not generally a vocal ninja kat, for obvious reasons. WM makes inquiry. Thing One rushes into the Fortress meowing in agitated fashion whilst pacing over WM’s notes and insinuating himself between monkey and keyboard. WM’s first thought is that Timmy has fallen in a well.

Purely out of curiosity WM follows Thing One to the laundry room, upon which closed door there is a frantic scratching. Timmy has not fallen in a well, but Thing Two has apparently managed to enclose herself in the clothes lair.

WM opens laundry room door, releasing the furry damsel in distress. Now the door is open, she is more interested in the evil doorstop than escaping from the dungeon.  Much boinging ensues.

Thing One preens and expects treats.

All’s well that ends well.
