Friday was Kitten Thunder’s birthdays. Oliver, whose birthday we know for certain was July 27, turned nine. And Obi, whose records gave a best guess at July 27, turned three. This is further proof that Obi was put on this planet to be with Oliver – he was a birthday present that just took eight months to deliver.
Of course, the whole world celebrated their birthdays with a big ceremony. I have no explanation for why they held it in London. Weird. Oliver feels bad that they haven’t changed the name of the event to include Obi; it could be the O-lympics or the OliandObimpics. But we understand that they’ve been planning this party since before Obi was born, so maybe it was too late to change the letterhead.
In addition to Friday’s big show – where some jerk named Bob seemed set on insulting every country that showed up – there are games! Games for like ten days! Obi has enjoyed some of them. Tennis, swimming, soccer and volleyball are interactive if you are a brown kitten. But there are others where he lays down and takes a nap.
We humbly suggest some new games for the next Oli-mpics:
Triple floor jump
Also, The Girl has been working on a project that we think would work quite well for those medals they give out.
And, if we might suggest one more change…
The winners should get to nap on that top tier.
I would totally watch those Oli-mpics. Here are some other possible events:
Happy belated birthday to the birthday boys.
Those are excellent suggestions! Freestyle stretching would probably be my favorite.
I would totally watch those events on the OliandObimpics.
Today we had the marathon thunder, which involves 50 trips from the second floor, around the main floor and into the basement.
I totally love that “medal”.. I’d have to make The Crew train for something like that! 🙂
Thank you! It came from a doodle I did at a conference last August. I’m finally getting around to turning it into a necklace (or 10).
