IF … Disguise

©2011 Mardi Speth All Right Reserved • Watercolor & Ink

Ever since The Press got hold of our mug shots, we venture out only after sundown. Incognito, of course. Our sojourn in the slammer was far from SWELL, except for our matching black eyes, which 'poofed like soufflés'. (To quote an eggism of Peet's.)
At least these silly costumes mask our bruises –– although they seriously inhibit our Hop & Run action. All we can do now is shuffle along. And no, I'm not too big
to be carried.

IF … Imperfect

      These two characters were nabbed outside the bakery after an anonymous caller
      reported suspicious activity. They call themselves Peet and Buttercup.
      And they say they have followers.

      The word on the street is that these two perpetrators have had
      free reign since first appearing on the scene, early this year.
      Proportionately speaking, they've been all over the map.
      It's high time to curb these shenanigans.
      The Design Police mandated a character study.

     Tough stuff.
     Or rather, tough fluff.
     From the start, the duo eluded capture. By the time I got footprints,
     they were both sporting shiners. The entire process bordered on obstinance
     and defiance. Look! Even now, they misbehave.
          Peet! Get your ears out of your eyes! 
          And Buttercup … please … remove the finger from your nose. 
     (They swear ~ they're not bad, they're just drawn that way.)

IF ... Obsession

    Yours, Mine and Ours
       The stalker                                         Buttercup really digs cheese
      Oh, for the love of sweets!
