Vuvuzelas

Vuvuzelas

The buzzing woke me up. This was ridicules, I have to get some sleep. Night turns are bad enough. The buzzing starts again, that ever humming dull tone. I get up, throw on a robe and walk down stairs.

The steps creak as I walk down. The droning buzz stops. Three cats look at me from the couch. Tails flipping wildly. A tiny horn in each of their paws. Each wears a team scarf; that I plan to throttle them with. The World Cup is on the television. Wait! England and the US are tied with five minutes left?

i got to admit, while at first the vuvuzelas were irritating me, now i'm super into them as a way to express sport love. i mean, come on! they make it sound like the match is being attacked by a swarm of bees, how do you not love that?

great drabble. who're your cats cheering for?

makes sense, i suppose. if my national team weren't a joke, i'd likely cheer for them*
