Officer: Are you aware that you “flashed” your neighbor?
kuhio98: I can explain…
Officer: Suzanne from across the street may never be the same after what she saw.
kuhio98: If you’ll just let me explain…
Officer: Spill it! It better be good.
kuhio98: Well, I was taking a bath you see. And Pepper decided to crawl under the towels I left in the floor.
Officer: Pepper? What the heck does Pepper have to do with taking a bath?
kuhio98: No, not a pepper bath. Pepper is my cat.
Officer: You’re saying that a cat is responsible for Suzanne’s damaged corneas?
kuhio98: No. It wasn’t Pepper’s fault. See she was so comfy that I didn’t want to disturb her when I got out of the tub.
Officer: Let me get this straight. You blinded your neighbor because you didn’t want to disturb a cat?
kuhio98: Well, of course. I couldn’t disturb her. She was sleeping so peacefully.
Officer: Right lady, continue….
kuhio98: So, I grabbed a hand towel and attempted to dry off, but quickly I discovered that it wasn’t uhh sufficient to do the job.
Officer: Uh huh – Nodding in agreement
kuhio98: I walked out into the hall to the linen closet to get another towel to dry off the rest of my ummmmm “acreage”.
Officer: I’m with ya.
kuhio98: I found a towel and when I turned to close the door, I realized that Bobcat had left all the curtains open so that people could view our Christmas tree lights!!! I screamed and ran for cover.
Officer: But, it was too late.
kuhio98: Yes, the damage had been done. Suzanne witnessed the whole thing.
Officer: Because you didn’t want to disturb Pepper?
kuhio98: Yes. She just looked so comfortable, I hated to bother her.
Officer: Well, I’m not sure how to write this ticket up.
kuhio98: I just hope the judge and jury are cat lovers. No one would convict me! You just can’t disturb a sleeping kitty. It’s just not right!
Officer: You're crazy lady.
kuhio98: Nope! I'm a cat lover!
