Well friends, I finally did it - I locked Mama out of the car!
Ha ha .....
I can't stop laughing. You should have seen her face!
Ha ha ha ...
Anyway, I've been wanting to do that for I don't know how long. I had a few false starts over the months but somehow she always managed to outsmart me. But last week I finally did it.
Course, I can't take all the credit. Mama did toss her remote into the front seat while I was in the car. And as she was talking to her friend Susan, she absent-mindedly closed the door ....
WELL! "This is my chance," I thought. So I very cleverly stepped on the "lock" button and ~ CLICK ~ !!
Mama was shocked because she knows that the doors can't lock unless someone presses the button on the remote. She took one look at me through the window and grabbed her head. "Leave it to Chef," she said. "What a clowndog."
Then Susan ran to her car and got a hanger, but after struggling for half an hour, they couldn't open the door. And all the chatter! You'd think I was going to drive the car away, never to be seen again. Not that it didn't occur to me. It's just that I don't know how to turn the ignition on. So I figured I'd just sit there and laugh.This isn't the first stunt I've pulled in the car. Some of you may remember when last year I stepped on the button that opens the window and I jumped out of the car and ran right to the dog park. And I locked Papa out of the truck a couple of times. But he had another key. So this is the first time I got to spend almost an hour all by myself in the car! Next time I'm going to figure out how to turn on the radio to a rock station so I can bop around in the seat. And maybe I'll learn how to turn on the ignition and go to MacDonald's drive-through for a burger and fries.
Anyway, so Mama ended up calling Papa to come with their extra key and that was it. But it was the most fun I've had in a long time. You've got to try it.
But shhh. Don't tell your Mamas who told you.
Bye for now. Have a good week.
