What happened on the weekend

On Friday night I was outside hanging out in my parsley pot when something started chirping at me. It was a cicada! Under my pot! And it was yelling at me!

These are cicadas. They are very noisy.

I ran inside to get dad to help me get at the cicada but I don't think he understood what I wanted. He kept asking me what was wrong but he didn't come outside to help me. So I went back out and yelled at the cicada a bit more but it didn't go away.

I went back inside and told dad to come out and help me (again) but he just sat there. Eventually mum said she thought I wanted dad to come outside with me so he finally did. He got the cicada out from under my parsley pot and I killed it, because I am Huffle the Mighty Hunter!

Then I could sit in my parsley pot in peace.

Every part of this story is true except the bit where I killed the cicada. Dad did that.

Humans are so slow sometimes.

But those bugs looks interesting. Did you get to eat it?

Jack & Moo said...

We look forward to cicada season, they're noisy, but they are fun to play with. Next time, woo'll have to kill it before dad - why should he have all the fun?

I'm sure the only reason you didn't kill the noisy critter yourself was because you commanded your Dad to do it for you.. I mean why do menial tasks when you have slaves that can do them for you??

yup.. thats it.. its all good!

If that thing had invaded my parsley pot I would have commanded Mum to torture and kill it immediatley.. nit that I have a parsley pot .. but you get the picture!!

I don't get to hunt bugs outside, but other than making noise, ciacada's are OK.

Happy Belated Blogversary.

Be careful Huffle. DOn't eat to many of those things. I once heard of a Rottweiler eating a bunch when they were alive and then hracked a bunch of living cicadas. Could you imagine having those things crawling around in your tum-tum?

Honest Huffle, Hero Huffle - now tell us what woo did with the cicada after it was dead. Didn't woo eat it?

Stella said...

Killer or not, its a darn good story. I'm surprised your Dad wasn't a little more on the uptake with your concerns, but better late than never!


Mr. Black said...

Good job, Huffle! These insects need to know who is boss and there is no better way to teach them than having them for dinner. Not over for dinner.

The beans can be a little slow at times!

Mason Dixie said...

It's okay to have your dad do the dirty work for you. =)

We think it's better to have your Dad get rid of them for you. We wouldn't want to get sick.

You're still a mighty hunter, Huffle.

Poppy Q said...

Huffle, I love cicadas, they are very tasty.


Forever Foster said...

Cicadas are a big nuisance! We have not met one, but we can tell how bad they are because of the way our mum went 'grrrr' when she saw the photo.

We are pleased to hear your dad was able to help you put an end to the noisy menace.

Pinky Ash and Boo said...

Cicadas don't sound like a fun thing to find in your spot. Thank goodness your Mum told your Dad to investigate.

D.K. Wall said...

We were invaded last year, and found them very tasty.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

That was a good story. I will just believe that you got that pesky cicada yourself!

The Army of Four said...

Woo, Huffle! Those cicadas are MIGHTY tasty! I love to catch them and feel them buzzing in my mouth! Then Mom goes "nononodavyno!" and opens my mouth and gets the gooey dead bug guts out. And she doesn't even sit and give me her paw first! Can you believe that?!? Anyway, I love those things!

The Crew said...

Oh Huffle, those things are awful looking! Weren't you scared?!

Your friend

meemsnyc said...

Mickey's Musings said...

Hey Huffle,
The mighty hunter Boru would have killed it for you. Brusey is a great hunter. Him and Jenny get any flying thing that ventures into the house.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I'm sure you could have killed the cicada, if your dad hadn't barged in and done it first.


Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

That sounds like a lot of fun!! Why didn't you tango with the critter? Dad didn't want to watch the torture ?

(angel) Grrreta and Fam said...

Those do not look very yummy at all. I don't blame you for letting your dad hunt it.

Huffle, are you telling porky pies? (lies?)
