Parent trap

April 22, 2012

While some people have a morning cup of joe to get their day started, I have my morning cup of Phil.

When he wakes up, he sneaks up on me and shouts “BOO!” at the top of his lungs. He’s getting pretty stealthy; this week he really startled me a couple of times.

This reminds me of Cato Fong, Inspector Clouseau’s valet in the old Pink Panther movies, who would attack Clouseau unexpectedly to keep Clouseau’s wits and reflexes sharp.

The difference is that Clouseau specifically asked Cato to surprise him, whereas I did not ask Phil. He came up with the routine all by himself.

What will he think of next?
