There are some houseguests and company
who require special treatment while they're visiting.
You might be thrilled to see them,
but you've got to work a little to be a good hostess
and your routine has to change to accommodate their presence.
When they're in the house, you'll want to remember to at least
brush your teeth and comb your hair
before going out to fix the morning coffee.
You might even feel that you've got to get dressed and take a shower before breakfast!
And then there are those guests who breeze in the door
and instantly make themselves at home.
They've seen you at your worst and aren't judgmental.
Half dressed in the morning? Who cares?!
Dishes not done? Who cares?!
Piles of laundry on the floor? Who cares!
They don't mind if you're in your pjs in the morning
because even though they've brought along their own bed,
they'd rather sleep
right there in the bed with you!
Atta has her friend Murphy visiting for a few days
owners the keepers of his house
are out of town.
If something's wrong with his accommodations then he gently lets us know....
He's not above silently and patiently reminding us when it's dinner time.
|"If I stare at the food bin long enough, the lid will open and the bowl will be filled."|
If he's still hungry later in the evening,
he gets the message across
that he'd appreciate a little more to eat.
With good friends, you can chill out in the kitchen and watch the minutes tick by.
Now that he's visited numerous times,
the persnickity member of the house
(aka Noel the Tabby Cat)
has him fully under her clawless control
through her feline powers of mental intimidation.
He's the kind of friend who takes over your favorite bed
and you don't mind a bit
not even a little bit
Nope, not at all....
Well maybe it bothers you a tiny bit.
But it's worth it to have your best friend in the house!
