Oohga Whah Whah

Labors so many times interrupted, thoughts broken                         into undone things. With no girl Friday, no one else to intervene...                             but invention. Traveled to the heart of darkness (well, just a little)          to find the most debonair of phone responders, Oohga Whah Whah. He knows delivery.  Now take the nice young lady: Is James there?      "Buutah sisi titsii twap boo" "Well, yes, but may I speak with James?      "Oohga Whah Whah" (indignately) "Please have him call me at this number"      Strange clicking noise. Surprisingly she called back.     Caught in a more expansive mood... "Yes, that's my Masai houseboy, but he is Not                                     to answer.     And he is supposed to watch little Fluffy. Where is Fluffy? Damn, I forgot to leave      Groceries again!" Click....and this time for good.

OMG! James, this is too much! LOL! The ending left me laughing untill there were tears in my eyes. What fun this is to read. I've re-read it several times, too, each time laughing and grinning excessively. What a treat! Such an imagination you must have, my friend. I adore the idea of the Masai houseboy, as well. The "language" you give him is simply wonderful and so very creative. And, Fluffy...poor thing. Too funny! Thanks so much for sharing the giggles with us, James. This goes on my list immediately! (still chuckling....) I love it! My best to you, Mary

Good Morning James and what a delightful read this was.........loved the wording, the thoughts and visions that came forth as one continued on. Indeed it was a 'fun' read and I am certain fun to write as well. Love it when people expand on their imagination and more so when it is shared. Take care and God Bless..... Always remember to tuck twenty aside each payday for groceries............Claire

So, you have a houseboy eh? Fluffy was let loose and snatched by our Golden eagles that fly around here. They fight with the hawks...oh such fun it is...look at all that white fur that Fluffy left behind! Don't give Oohga my number, okay?
