Falling Off the Wagon.

Esme , " If you've been visiting for some time now , you might remember that Mitalee and I started a  Tissue Paper Eaters Anonymous support group. We have a problem when that substance is around. It's actually been thirteen months and three days since I last ate tissue paper. I know!! I'm surrounded by it as we speak!  But I will NOT be tempted! My resolve is remarkably strong!"

Esme , " I guess it wouldn't hurt to take one little whiff though.Ahhhh.Heady stuff !! Whiff.Whiff.Whiff.whiff.whiff. "

Esme , " Look at this little piece. It's just sticking up with nowhere to go! Hello little piece of tissue paper!You are adorable but you do not tempt me. At all!! I am iron-willed! "

Esme , " O.k. I will lick you. If you insist! Just a little bit. No harm in that! Lick, lick, lick. Just a little lickity, lick lick!! But no crunching! And certainly no chewing! I am mulish in my resolve! "

Esme , " Crunch!! Chew! Chew! Chew! Uh oh! I think I may just have fallen off the Tissue Paper Eaters Anonymous' wagon!! Unfortunately , my resolve was not resolute after all. Luckily for me there are no witnesses. . .  "

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.
the critters in the cottage xo


  1. Oops !
    I see what I should not see ????
    Tip toes out ! And Run ! Before you even notice ; )

  2. Oh, Esme, I feel the same way about chocolate.
    It's an uphill battle, sweetie!

  3. Oh dear Esme - all that resolve has vanished in just one crunch and 3 chews - now you'll have to start all over again!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. I'm not sure about eating tissue paper. I've never been tempted. I do love to play with it and make a major mess for the human to pick up!

  5. Eeeh , no witnesses ??
    OK , you can trust me I will keep my cute mouth shut *mol*

  6. MOL, aww, well, you can start over again tomorrow... until the next time, right?

  7. Oh Esme... I am sorry you were so tempted. Just let it go and move on. You are very strong and will be do better next time I am sure. Now - no looking back - it isn't the direction you are going. Love you Esme!

  8. Oh oh Esme, I'll be right over for the intervention...I know how tempting that could be (for me it's string)! Have a great week kitties!


We always love to hear from you!
