28 Days of Writing - Shakespearean English

A couple of nights ago, I was awakened by something.  I wasn't sure what.  I had been hopeful for a restful night of sleep after all the late nights of writing.

Haha.

YEEGADS!  What IS that smell?  Did the cat....?

Nope,  no stinky messy cat packages seem to be the issue.

It's an overly sweet smell.  Hey, what happened to my body spray?  It seems to have sucked the life out of the air. 

"Here's the smell of blood still:  all the perfumes of Arabia 
will not sweeten this little hand.  Oh, oh, oh!"

It was Evil Twin, of course, studying MacBeth, practicing her delivery using my body spray as blood.  Oh dear.  I think our late-night activity with the axe and that succubus might have damaged her in some way.

Sigh.

These people write Shakespeare better than Shakespeare himself.

Hey Reffie! Playing a bit of catch-up with all y'all. I actually sneezed when I read this one. 205 months cooped up in the house because of the cold has made me that sensitive to smells.

Methinks the (Evil Twin) lady doth use scent too much.

But what does a Bear really know about Shakespeare?Or Evil Twins?

Blessings an Bear hugs!

A dose of Axe body spray ought to take care of your little problem I would think.

"messy cat packages"

I will never EVER look at my cat's pooh again without thinking about that and laughing!

Messy cat packages...I just finished scooping some of those.

Linda Medrano said...

Forsooth, this stuff scares me.

I've been awoken by messy cat packages. The cats just don't like covering their poops and figure we'll do it for them.

We do.

@Cheryl - Bless you!

@Rob-bear - Hee Hee. Some scents are worse than others.

@Noname - Ugh.

@Frank - Apparently.

@Katherine - Hee Hee. I hope you don't have any messes waiting for you.

@Linda - Hm....next on my list.

@Linda M. - I'll ask Evil Twin to take off her mask.

@Mariann - Cat sure are goofy.

Speaking as an owner of three cats, I truly wish cat crap smelled like body spray. That would make my life completely perfect.

Uh, I think Evil Twin was damaged long before she took up with Shakespeare.
