Monday Musings Returns!

Excellent photo of me by: Rachel Lauren Photography

But first we'd like to preview a few important events coming up this week on Bocci's Beefs:
__ You probably all know that October is officially dubbed "Adopt A Shelter Pet Month", and we'll be bringing you special information for the remainder of the month on adoption, and how you can help the effort, even if you don't actually adopt a pet. And we'll start with one of our favorite adoption campaigns: Iams Home 4 The Holidays! And...

__ Later this week we'll continue our reviews and giveaways with one of FURminator's new products...so please stay transfixed to your computer screen!

Now, on to Monday Musings, complete with a picture to get your creative juices flowing. This is the "scene of the crime", so to speak-or at least it was a "crime" according to Parental Unit.

Here's the official police report reprinted in its entirety: "On Friday afternoon, October 14, 2011, at approximately 4:00 pm (EST), the suspect, one Bocci DeMartin, a canine of mixed heritage, removed and presumably ingested a sweet edible from the home office desk of his Parental Unit, one Joan DeMartin, a freelance writer who depends on said afternoon sweet treat, along with her tea, to keep her working through till dinner. The photo above documents the remains of  said sweet treat, (found on the floor of Parental Unit's home office) and the wrapper in which it had been stored-actually, it was mostly the wrapper that remained. 

Parental Unit asked that the following be noted for the official record lest anyone think she stuffs her face with sweets every afternoon: 'I only ate half of my treat and was saving the other half for the next afternoon. Despite evidence to the contrary (my less than ideal weight), I am a dainty eater.'  

The suspect, Bocci DeMartin, declined to be interviewed for the record (he had yet to obtain counsel), but reportedly issued a rather loud belch upon leaving the room for a nap.

Note: neither paw prints nor finger prints were taken at the scene."

So....based on the photograph and official police report documented above, what do you think happened to Parental Unit's remaining portion of her sweet treat, and who was the perpetrator of this alleged crime? Please choose from among the following or make up your own:

1. Parental Unit, in a hormone and sugar induced fit, returned to her desk and inhaled the remaining treat, shredding its wrapper in the process and leaving it on the floor so "someone else" could take the rap.

2. I waited until Parental Unit took a bathroom break, then grabbed the treat from her desk, intending to just "try" it. But it tasted so good (no wonder she's fat!), that I inhaled the entire treat, including some of the wrapping before discretely heading downstairs.

3. Bella (the cat) removed the treat from its wrapper and took it to her "ultimate hiding place", that despite hundreds of searches, no one has yet discovered.

4. A masked human intruder entered our home intending to steal the computer, but instead discovered and ate the treat, leaving the wrapper on the floor in his or her hurried attempt to flee the scene after hearing the commode flush.

Let us know your thoughts by no later than Wednesday at 6:00 pm, when we'll tell you what really happened!

Definitely #1. All evidence points to this conclusion... especially Ms. DeMartin's lame attempt to blame her dog Bocci by claiming that she is "a dainty eater" and only consumes half of a treat each afternoon. Rubbish. No one eats half of a treat and then saves the other half. This was a no brainer.
