It was just a matter of time, I guess. I got up this morning and entered the bathroom to find the toilet paper completely stripped from the roll. I should have learned when Samantha trapped herself in the bathroom last week.
You see, Samantha likes opening and closing cabinets and doors. So, last week, I got up and saw the bathroom door was closed. I knew she closed the door and trapped herself. I also noticed she had reeled off about two feet of toilet paper, but I didn't really give it much thought at the time. Evidently, I should have!
Of course, Sam disappeared immediately when she heard the tone of my voice this morning. Fortunately, she has the memory of a mirror (when it's convenient) and later came strolling out of the bedroom. But, when I pointed out the mess, she hightailed it back to her secret hiding spot.
So, currently I am keeping the bathroom door closed. She has gone to the door a couple of times but it doesn't seem to interest her.
She does feel, however, that I need to be accompanied by her when I use the bathroom. That is where she's the most affectionate for some reason, rubbing against me and looking to be petted and scratched. On the other hand, she might just be afraid that I'll pull all the toilet paper off the roll.....

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman behind him was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.
As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door.
She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects. He said, ''I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him."
The officer continued, "Then, I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do?' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me To Sunday-School' bumper sticker and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally.....I assumed you had stolen the car.''
A very shy guy goes into a bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering up his courage he finally goes over to her and asks, tentatively, "Um, would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?"
She responds by yelling, at the top of her lungs, "No, I won't sleep with you tonight!" Everyone in the bar is now staring at them. Naturally, the guy is hopelessly and completely embarrassed and he slinks back to his table.
After a few minutes, the woman walks over to him and apologizes. She smiles at him and says, "I'm sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I'm a graduate student in psychology and I'm studying how people respond to embarrassing situations." To which he responds, at the top of his lungs, "$200? Are you out of your mind?"
