Tattletail Tueseday

Dis hole has been in da wall of da bean bafroom fur almost 7 years. Daddy put it der when he put in doze lectrical outlets and da new lite switches. It's been der fur so long dat mom has started using it as storage. She keeps da blow dryer, a bag of alcohol swabs and Sadies alerjee shot stuff and her needle thingies in der. Der is a board about 4 inches down dat goes across horizontally dat makes a grate shelf. Mom is thinking of making da whole bigger unner da switches and den putting a little door on it and keeping it as storage cuz she knows dad is neffur gonna fix it. Oh, he started to but mom made him stop becuz he was glueing stuff back up and making a mess.

That sounds like a convenient storage spot! I think your mom's plan sounds like a good one.

Ann said...

Our Daddy never fixes anything either... are all dadbeans like that???

Daisy said...

That's very funny! Dads are good at making a mess, but not so good at cleaning up the mess. But he was good to put in those nice outlets!

Parker said...

Well, it serves a good purpose now - you can never have enough storage space! :)

Our dad's like that too. He's always starting fings but nefurr finishes them. Mum gits mad sumtimes and tries to finish it, but then he tells her she's doing it wrong, but he still duzn't finish it, and she gits madder.

Oh that is a very good tattletail exposee! I thought ML was a good procrastinator! Your mom is very clever in terms of making "lemonade"! Great tattling you guys!

*snerk* your dad sounds like our dad. We call him the Not Bob Vila. Maybe your mom could threaten to call a handy man like our mom does.

HA! MomBean doesn't let HeBean NEAR the powertools evfur since the shelves nearly fell on her head.

It's been two years and she's just now letting him use the drill, but only if she's there to watch!

I like yur Mom's plan. Dad don't do much house projects like that and Mom says she's the better painter. But he does shelves!

We's sorry we maded yur mom feel old. We didn't mean to! Mom was mad that der was an "Over the Hill" party at the restaurant, an it was fur sumone turnin 40. She insists that's NOT the hill. A bump, maybe, but NOT the HILL. If yur mom's still sad, give her lotsa purrs an head bonks frum me.

Our Daddy never fixes things either. We have a hole in the wall by our stairs leading into the den that Mommy said Daddy would never fix but he assured her he would - over a year ago. Sigh.

Sunny's Mommy said...

If this tattle tail of yours doesn't make your Daddy fix that whole in the wall, I don't know what will.

Maybe you could repeat this particular posting every Tuesday to embarrass Daddy until he does fix it! Or your Mom could hang a string of lights, take a picture and tell Daddy she's using that as the family Christmas card this year.

Tybalt said...

Ha ha ha! I think your mommy has a good plan.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Ha, ha, ha......that is funny. At least you have extra storage.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

GREAT reveal. I think we're lucky the AM likes to finish projects. Often he wants to finish them a bit too much. Luckily this is useful!

That is so funny. Way to make lemons into lemonade!

Cheysuli said...

I think that sounds like a very good idea!

Mickey said...

Heeheehee!!! Sounds like most Dads are great starters and not finishers!! Maybe it's a requirement,heehee!!!

Jimmy Joe said...

Whoa, that is a very big tattle. I bet your daddy will fix that now that you've told the whole Cat Blogosphere.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

The Meezers said...

your mommy should get one of those carpenters from HGTV to come and fix your bafroom! hee hee

Christine and FAZ said...

We have a similar hole in the kitchen. I quite like it but the girl human thinks it's unsightly (whatever that means). FAZ

Joey said...

That looks like a good place for a cat to hide and JUMP OUT from, or a place to keep a mousie for safe storage.

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

PB & J said...

That's funny - in our house Mom calls that a "Dad End", where Dad starts something and never finishes it!

Our Lady loves that! We don't have a dad, but she's quite a fix-it person herself. She's got several "projects" that are in the "I'm working on it" stage. Nothing as fabulous as that though.

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

ROTFLMBO!!!! I have a hole to match that one in my bedroom for over 7 years too!!!!!!! I bet if we combined all the unfinished house stuff in the cat blogosphere, we would have three unbuilt houses LOL!!!!
