Hello everyone; it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, here today to bring you something completely different, which I hope you will find entertaining. You may remember me from such illuminating posts as “Show And Tell” and “Things From Afar”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. I’m lying in the living room on a nice sunny morning, wondering why I’m not getting more biscuits and why the guy I live with isn’t getting ready for our morning walk. Could he have forgotten? I did get another biscuit (whew, huh), and got to go on my morning walk, a few minutes later. It’s a beautiful day today, by the way.
I have something quite special for you today. Namely, some movies. I wanted to say “some films”, but the guy I live with said that might be too pompous, and we wouldn’t want that.
The titles were something we had to discuss. I thought “The Mice Movies” would be better, since the movies we have for you aren’t of just one mouse, but the guy I live with said no, the word mouse here can be a synecdoche, and so I guess we’ll go with that. He vetoed “Mice: The Movie”, for reasons which may be obvious.
Anyway, here they are. There’s a pile of sunflower seeds on the edge of the patio, and it attracted some visitors. The guy I live with lay on the kitchen floor, with the camera resting on the metal threshold, which you can see in the lower right. I was lying in my fort and got all excited when the guy I live with lay down in front of it, so I got out to see what he was doing. The clattering sounds are from my toenails on the kitchen floor. I don’t know why the camera amplifies the sound of the highway and stuff so much, but it just does.
I even have some “deleted scenes” for you, those being practically obligatory these days. In the first one, the photographer begin to snicker, which I found most undignified. (You can hear him doing that in the feature film, too.)
In the second, the guy I live with said I spoiled it with all the clattering and heavy breathing.
I hope you enjoyed the movies as much as I did making all the noise to accompany them.
Until next time, then.
