Cornelius the Candy Thief

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

“Now this is living the life of Riley.” Total relaxation, no obligations, and no worries. Except my name is not Riley and this is not my life. My name is Cornelius and I am married to Esmeralda, the Good Witch. We have a happy home life with our cat Cassiopeia. Well we usually have a happy home life unless I happen to get on the wrong side of Esmeralda. It was really not premeditated on my part. I was foraging around looking for a sweet and found the stash of Intense Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt. It was very tasty. Later that night my dearest wife was about to read her favorite collection of “Cat Tales and Broomsticks” when she got an urge for something chocolate. The last thing I remember is her eyes, that strange glow, and poof! I found myself covered with fur and had a strange urge to eat a mouse.

        I do more than that. I do the typical your for you’re and all kinds of typos that I don’t recall right now but I am sure you will witness in the future. 🙂 Sometimes I have to correct my own comments. 🙂

    Uh oh, it seems he really got on the wrong side of his wife. He was being more of a piggy than a cat. Cute description of Cornelius the cat. I wonder if she’ll ever change him back. Well done, Deborah. 😀 — Suzanne
