You’ve Got to be Joking, Right?

13 Jul

Oh friends.  It was worse than I thought.  Oh my pigs!  I may need your help and a quick plan B.  You see mom/dad had the “family” meeting Saturday night.  I really thought they were joking.  Really I did.  I even started snorting waiting for the punch line.  Of course mom has to zip up with her wonderful phrases such as, “This will be good for you”; “It’s a growing experience”; “Here’s your chance to shine”.

Yeah right mom.  It doesn’t matter how much you sugar coat it, it sucks.  There I said it.  It sucks.  What sucks you ask?

Mom and dad are sending me to camp.  Outside.  In nature.  With other peeps.  No television.  No air conditioning.  In Nature – did I mention that?  And they expect me to participate in the entire ordeal.  What is up with that?!

Look friends.  I’ve seen enough horror movies on my television.  I know about Jason.  I know about not turning your back to anything.  I’ve seen movies where other campers have tied their friends up to floats and set them out on the lake.  Or put them out in nature covered in honey.  This little oinker is not amused.  This can’t turn out good for me.  This piggy will not start campaigning for I ❤ camp anytime soon.  No way.  There’s no way I can survive this.

What if a UFO comes down and gets me and tries to probe me?   What if they take me to their place and not bring me back?  I can foresee so many potential problems here my friends.  Can you help me out?  Can one of you kidnap me or persuade mom/dad not to send me.

    Think of it as a marvelous opportunity cleverly disguised as an impossible situation [wink]
    Have some ‘campy’ fun, Bacon! 🙂

      You’re kidding right? bugs, nature, dirt, no television, crafts – shivers. This is so wrong. I really hope mom changes her mind. XOXO – Bacon

      Oh brother. Gulps. I forgot about them. Do I really have to go? Don’t I have a say in this matter? Mom says she is sending the check today. Shakes head. Can you help me come up with a plan to get out of this predicament. I so don’t need this camping thing. XOXO – Bacon

        my grandpawrents set their tent on fire many moons ago and the owner of the camp kicked them out… it’s an option, bro… but a hot one :o)

        Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. I wonder if I could sneak some matches in my backpack? XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon you are a coward. Did you know that all your ancestors from back in time were LIVING in the wood? Even the not so wild ones were taken to the woods for fattening.

    Oh, Bacon! It will be all right…really, really, really it will! Just remember – if you hear evil music or see someone in a hockey mask, tap into your inner ‘hawg’ and give them a look like so:

    They will run for the hills!

      Lowers head and shakes it. I’m so in trouble. One does one really do at camp? Daddy says he has never been so how does he know it’s good for me? Mom is just thrilled that she found me a camp. She really didn’t have to. Honestly. XOXO – Bacon

    I have been camping it isn’t as bad as portrayed in movies. Not saying it is easy but it isn’t horrible. If you really can’t stand going you can beg your folks to le you stay at nanas when they go camping but you would miss out on all those delicious smores and rosting food over campfire like all beef hot dogs and other yummy foods. If they say no to that and you haven’t changed your mind you coukd always pretend to be sick day before they leave and then tjey would have to leave you with your nana. But think of all the food you will be missing out on.

      Oh but you see THEY are going. See, what’s wrong with that picture? Mom’s idea of camping out is a hotel without room service. BUT, this sending me to summer camp is suppose to be good for me. How is that? I won’t have the things that this little piggy has grown accustomed to.. like my television, toddler bed and air conditioning. Did I mention air conditioning? This is all wrong. XOXO – Bacon

        I know all about summer camp I get your dislike of it’s idea. Beg to stay at your grandma’s if that fails play sick day before they leave.

    Camp sounds horrendous. Nature is also horrendous. Do they have a sofa? Can you cuddle with anybody? What about your bedtime story?? Gah! I don’t like the sound of this at all, B. You’d better come and live at my house.

    Love and licks,

    • PigLove

      07/13/2015 at 4:38 pm

      I think I should Cupcake. Mom keeps saying that it will be good for me. I’m good already mom. I don’t need to be at camp or out in nature. XOXO – Bacon

    we agree – go to grandmas house instead 🙂

      07/13/2015 at 5:03 pm

      I would love to. I don’t think mommy is going to let me decide though. Stomps hooves. I think I’ll ignore her tonight…. of course after she makes my dinner. XOXO – Bacon

    Sometimes my humans send me to a place called Camp Bow Wow. It has air conditioning. That’s my kind of camp!

      07/13/2015 at 5:03 pm

      Really? They don’t make you stay outside in the woods? I’m not liking this one bit beautiful. XOXO – Bacon

    OMD no AC and bugs this is not good! I think it is time to pack a bag and stay with your Gram until Mom & Dad are thinking clearly 😉

      Don’t I know it! I so want to but mom is insisting like you wouldn’t believe. She did the reverse psychology thing on me last night – I know and fell for it. Said she wouldn’t feel right if I never knew the other side. Yeah right. It’s okay mom. I’m good with the luxury life here at the Hotel Thompson. XOXO – Bacon

    You don’t want to hear from me, Bacon!
    Camping is fun! Nature has so many more fun things to do than your living room couch! Fresh air, fun crafts, new friends, swimming and even SMORES! Yum! I think all the other Thompson’s will be jealous of you!

    • PigLove

      07/14/2015 at 8:43 am

      Gulps. You really think so my friend? It’s coming up very soon. Mom didn’t want me to sit and worry about it for too long. XOXO – Bacon

    I’m with you, Bacon. Camping without amenities is abominable, no matter how many marshmallows you eat. It’s full of bugs like the bees that stung me while I was mowing my lawn today.

    • PigLove

      07/14/2015 at 8:44 am

      Oh snaps my friend. I don’t need this. Can I come and “camp” with you at your place? I’ll keep the partying down to a small minimum. XOXO – Bacon

    Think of all the “One time at Pig camp…” stories you could tell. 😉

    • PigLove

      07/14/2015 at 8:44 am

      Oh snorts! This is true but oh my goodness- I have to get through it first. Shakes piggy head. This is so not going to end well. XOXO – Bacon

      07/14/2015 at 8:45 am

      I would like say yes but mom is not joking this time about it. She’s brought up in the past but quickly forgot about it. Not this time though. All I have is one word. Eeww. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom never liked camping either but had to go because there was no one at home to help her if she got into trouble. Then mom got sprayed by a skunk….she doesn’t remember going camping anymore after that. You could always get sprayed by a skunk. MOL

      07/16/2015 at 8:50 am

      Skunk.. writing that down. This is not going to be fun for me in any way, shape or form. It’s in a couple of weeks too. Can you believe my parents are making me go? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon, this is AWFUL! I think I need to dig a tunnel to your house so you can escape. You can come to my house, lay on the couch, and we can get cheesy doodles.

      07/20/2015 at 2:08 pm

      YES PLEASE!! I’ll bring my laptop so we can blog and have a great time. Heck, I’ll even bring dad’s credit card 🙂 Serves him right for siding with mommy in sending me to nature. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
