Wednesday’s child is full of woe …

Just watched Madison throw a tantrum of epic proportions, all without a sound. My usual mid-morning snack  is a handful of nuts and for whatever reason she decided she wanted one today. She’s been trained not to beg, and at any rate nuts are a big no-no, so I ignored her. She flounced into her bed next to my desk, frantically attempted to dig the fully-attached mattress out of it, then failing that burrowed her nose into each of the four corners, still scrabbling away with her feet. When nothing worked, she flopped disgustedly on her side, arched her back, and kicked her legs like she was having a nightmare. Lather, rinse, repeat on the other side. Big sigh. Stood up, shot me killer side-eye, and marched into the other room to sulk, with every hair on her head standing straight up and her frilly tail in a big frazzle. Total nutcase. See what I did there?

Kim has renamed her Badison.

    Since she was clearly mad, Madison is an apt name for her! lol xoxoM

    Hahaha, I didn’t know dogs threw tantrums. That’s funny. I don’t suppose a cat would. They’d probably just get all passive-aggressive about things. 🙂

    Thanks for your kind words over at Ned’s blog. Very sweet of you!
