Sleepy Sunseeker

Went around the Best Wood this morning. Nice crisp air. Foxes and squirrels to hunt. Sticks to chase. Life was just good. And then, when we were on the way back, I said to the STAFF "Hey, let's go around again!". Now, I always say this. Every time. It's just a joke, right! And nothing ever happens. We just go home. Have breakfast. Go to work or sleep, depending on your rank. Everyone is happy. So, when I said "Hey, let's go around again", that's what I expected to happen. BUT... one of the STAFF said to the other "Hey, let's do it. Let's just go around again". Ignoring the expression on the other member of STAFF's face, and the expression on my face (which is infinitely worse to ignore, because I am Chief of STAFF) off they went. "What?", I said. I mean: "I say, WHAT?!?". But there was nothing for it. I had to go around again.
Do they have NO sense of humour, I ask you? Can a guy not make an innocent joke without being exercised to the point of exhaustion?

Anyway, when we finally got home, I insisted that the furniture be moved. After all, you have to get into the sunshine whenever you can. And I was wearing the STAFFs socks. It helped me sleep.

I wonder what they have in store for tomorrow. I better rest to prepare...
