"Hihihihihi!! meowmie," I sed. "I'm okay, I'm jus finkin bowt lyfe up heer." She skweeled wif delyte wen she seed how high up I wuz. Den I showed hur how I kud walk ofur tew da naybur's yard. Well, I wuz ofur da naybur's yard an it wuz a longlong way down. She kept sayin, benny, benny, yew little spit, come down, benny. Well, didunt she reeuhlyz dat a boy needs sum tym tew hisownself?
