Yep, this is how I felt about pig sitting interviews 1, 2 and 3 – it was a HUGE snoozefest. Time is ticking away to find me a pig sitter so mom/dad scheduled three interviews yesterday at the Hotel Thompson. Who knew it would be so difficult to find a pig sitter – snorts.
I do admit though, the interviews were kind of funny. I thought I would share.
Each person is told the same thing. Mom/dad are looking for a pig sitter, someone that would be with me most of the time. With the exception of school, a date, etc. I have a schedule that needs to be maintained to my standards. That means, the individual gets free rent and food while they are here with me. AND, they are getting paid to keep me company, feed me and basically be at my beck and call. Snorts – okay well that’s how I took it anyway.
Interview 1 –
Nice young man in college. He had great potential… I thought. All for the free food, free rent. He didn’t even mind keeping me company. BUT, things went down rather fast when he was told he would have to clean up my potty box. As he put it, “Why couldn’t I use the outside.” Apparently he didn’t understand that I’m an inside piggy – NEXT
Interview 2 –
This was the most hilarious interview of the entire day. I actually squealed I was laughing so hard. Nice young woman. She came into the house, sat down and then saw me on mom’s lap sleeping. She had a fear on her face that was priceless. She thought the paper had a typo and should have said PUG as in a dog and not PIG. Snorts – She left. Apparently, she’s not used to dealing with such a fine domesticated pig – NEXT
Interview 3 –
This one also had great potential. Older lady in the neighborhood… kind of grandmotherly type. It would have been convenient to say the least. But, apparently she didn’t realize that there would be cooking for me. As she so bluntly put it, “Why can’t he just have pig feed like normal pigs?” Really? Do I ‘look’ like a normal pig?? – NEXT
So more interviews will be coming in the next couple of weeks. Time is getting down on us at this point. Is there anyone out there willing to take care of loveable, snuggable me? I’m having my doubts at this point.

I think #2 is not bad. fear on the face is expandable and you could paint the town red, while she is sitting under the sofa. But she can’t read, not even a paper to say nothing of a book :o) NEXT! Hope you will find your Mary Poppins, brother :o)
10/07/2013 at 12:46 pm
Thank you Easy. I really hope mom/dad find someone soon. They are stressing over this matter like you wouldn’t believe. Hopefully, soon. More interviews are being scheduled for this Sunday. Wish us luck. XOXO – Bacon

Stop the interviews! Come stay with your mini pig pal! We’d love to have you…wish you were closer. Though you might not like me as much in person, I can be pretty grabby.
10/07/2013 at 1:06 pm
It would be super FUN to be able to come over. Momma said that several times – we could do swap outs for vacation. Cause, you know we did think about ya’ll first. But, it’s a long ride to your house unfortunately. I don’t know why she is persisting in a sitter. Shuffles hooves. I’m old enough to stay by myself. XOXO – Bacon

Gosh Bacon who knew it would be so tough to find someone who would LUV to take care of adorable you???? Maybe your Mom will have to take you WITH her on her trip?

Snorts – don’t think I haven’t asked. I personally think that I’m old enough to take care of myself. She is a worry wart though and is putting her foot down that I have to have a sitter. The search continues. Hopefully they will have better luck this coming weekend with interviews. XOXO – Bacon
10/07/2013 at 4:04 pm
I think you should come and stay with me, we’d have so much fun together!
10/07/2013 at 5:03 pm
I know we would my friend! Darn these time zones. I wish we were all closer. XOXO – Bacon

OH. You know the peeps and I would sit with you if you lived near me or if I lived near you. Really. We would.
Someone will turn up really soon and it’ll all be fine.
You make me laugh!!!!
10/07/2013 at 5:04 pm

Don’t you settle for anyone but the best, Bacon! You? Live outdoors? What were they thinking! Hilarious about the pug/pig confusion. I would think you’d be very fine company, and a lot more exciting than a pug! They just don’t know what they’re missing, do they? Shame.
10/07/2013 at 6:47 pm
That’s what I’m saying my friend. I’m a well educated, well adjusted domesticated pig here at the Hotel Thompson. They should be paying me to to stay here with me. Right? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
10/07/2013 at 6:33 pm
There has to be someone out there. Maybe 3 bad ones means the next one will be the one you are looking for. Bacon at least you have some good humor about all of this.
10/07/2013 at 6:48 pm
Snorts. Well hopefully the interviews this weekend will turn out better. I hope so! You gotta keep a good sense of humor, don’t you? XOXO – Bacon
10/07/2013 at 7:47 pm
Good grief Bacon that’s hilarious..we would do it….bit far but still…perhaps a local shelter might know someone suitable as they often have contacts..i do hope your sitter is out there…with a cookbook a pair of cleaning gloves and a lap 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx
10/07/2013 at 8:19 pm
Aaww thanks my friend. I know you would volunteer. We are still working on it. I’m not giving up yet. XOXO – Bacon
10/07/2013 at 11:29 pm
Never surrender sweet Bacon 🙂 xxx
10/08/2013 at 8:37 am
It’s not in my vocabulary my friend! XOXO – Bacon
10/08/2013 at 4:43 pm
Didn’t think so Bacon 😉 xxx Fozziemum
10/07/2013 at 9:25 pm
Some humans just don’t get us spoiled piggies. Wish we were closer, my door would be open for you pal! Enjoying scoops of Ben & jerrys ice cream right now with mom, wish you were here. Snort, snort 🙂
10/07/2013 at 9:34 pm
Twin!! Can you imagine how much trouble I mean fun we could have? We could blame everything on each other and say Bacon did it – snorts – PLOL (pig laughing out loud). It would be a bunch of fun! XOXO – Bacon
10/07/2013 at 9:49 pm
We would have to spend the day at the spa! PLOL :). (Without Albert!) PLOL
10/07/2013 at 9:50 pm
Snorticles – now you’re talking brother!! I would so be there for that. XOXO – Bacon
10/08/2013 at 2:11 am
Oh Bacon! I laughed so hard at your interviewees. I know I would make the very best pig sitter, ( I worked as a nurse, when I was younger so the “inside jobs” wouldn’t phase me).
Alas I live too far away. I agree with 3 bad ones means you are a due a good one next!
So funny though!!
10/08/2013 at 8:39 am
Thank you my friend. I’m really not that hard to take care of. Believe it or not, Mouse Girl’s um well.. potty business is bigger than mine. I’m actually a very clean piggy. And just think of all of the LOVE I give in return. I’ll even let you be in control of the remote in the front room. It’s got to get better from here on out. Next interviews scheduled this coming Sunday. You gotta wish me luck. XOXO – Bacon

Oh my. I did find myself laughing, but that is not fun for you, Bacon, because your mom is really trying to find someone to care for you. We will keep our fingers crossed for the next interviews. It has to be someone special, Bacon!
10/08/2013 at 9:08 pm
Thank you my friend. I have faith still. Hopefully this weekends interviews will be better … I hope so for moms sake – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
