Revenge is a dish….

“La vengeance est un plat qui se mange froide” from Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’s epistolary novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, 1782 or “revenge is a dish best served cold” according to our household.

Yup, you guessed it, Pepper’s revenge after yesterday’s totally unprovoked attack by Monster, was to clamber into his beloved and-only-his bed that evening.

This is Pepper’s she-knows-and-I-know face.  Butter wouldn’t melt but she’s feeling very hard done by and wanted revenge.

And so Pepper settled down for the evening so that Monster had to take up position, on OH’s knee.  He did manage a very smug I-don-t-care face at everyone.

You can almost hear the snoring.

And then later, now with a taste for other folk’s beds, I found Pepper happily snoozing in Ted’s sacred, and only his, bed.  The one next to my bed.  Again, she had made herself very comfortable.

And was going nowhere.  Now, I have never seen Pepper sleep in Ted’s bed.  That’s not her place (she sleeps on the people bed while Ted always chooses not to).

So there is politics going on here and I am not sure who is playing one-upmanship with whom but it is definitely going on.  Ted, of course, is oblivious and has no idea what is going on.

I blame Monster. He started it.

    Monster looks like the picture of innocence. Who would ever suspect him of being such an instigator. I suppose he has that name for a reason.
