Feather of Shame – Just Jot It January – Humiliate

Feather of Shame – Just Jot It January – Humiliate

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 11th, 2018

Feather, Desktop Wallpaper

If this photo I found on Pixabay was on a stick, it would be like a cat toy we used to have. The cats loved to chase the feather around.

We sometimes played with it, too, and called it the ‘feather of shame’.

Anytime one of us did or said something really silly or wrong, we’d get the feather of shame, and wave it in front of them. It was just for laughs, and not really to humiliate them. It became a family joke, and we all knew what it meant, when someone else would say, “You get the feather of shame!” haha

We don’t have the feather on a stick any more, as it finally wore out, and lost the feathery part. We still have the stick, though. We just call it ‘Stubbins’ now, because there is just a stub of the feather left on the end. Stubbins was Paolo’s favorite toy to chase around in circles. He is sadly passed on now, and we miss playing with him.

GHOST RULES – GIVE & TAKE

Standard

GHOST RULES – GIVE & TAKE

Toy Ghost

Puzzle piece that was missing – now found

So, most of you know I love talking about ghosts, and writing about my true ghost stories. Well, my resident ghost has been up to silly tricks again. Ghost likes to take things for awhile, then gives them back. There’s been lots of incidents like this in the past. Most of these are just harmless things to take notice of, or be annoyed by them.

This latest one is of the ‘scratch your head – why’ variety. Here’s the scene:

The living room – we find that a cat toy is missing. This is a cotton-stuffed, fabric toy that I made myself, which we roll in catnip every few days. It is Cricket’s favorite toy. She can lick it, roll on it, kick it, and go to kitty dreamland hugging it. It is always on the little extra couch we have in here, and is never moved from there. She doesn’t ever move it. Now, it is gone. Just gone. We’ve looked under the couch, under the blankets and pillows, on the floor, and in every room in the house, just to make sure. It is gone. It’s been missing for at least a week or so. She has other catnip toys, but you can tell that for her, it’s just not the same. (sigh)

The kitchen – yesterday we find a jigsaw puzzle piece in the floor. There’s nothing strange about that, as I’ve been working the puzzles for months, now, and sometimes a piece falls on the floor. I pick it up right away.This puzzle piece, however, is the one piece that was missing from the puzzle I told you about awhile back…the one of the Sugar Skull. It was a brand new puzzle, but this piece came up missing. I’ve worked at least 4 other puzzles since finishing that one. There weren’t any missing pieces of those, and no extra ones either.

We’ve walked through the kitchen probably a million times, and had not seen this one piece just laying there in the middle of the floor. It would have been impossible not to notice it. But…yesterday, there it was, just as if it wanted us to notice it. I was like, how can this be? It’s been missing the whole time, and now, here it is! Then, I remembered…our Ghost. Um-hmm, go figure.

Missing cat toy = take away

Find missing puzzle piece = give something back to us.

Maybe one of these days Ghost will give back the cat toy…but, what will Ghost take away next?

*** I would show you a photo of the missing cat toy, but it’s gone missing!
