D: Made With Real Girl Scouts

"Who was it?" my wife asked.

My wife looked at me incredulously and put down the hammer and nails she had been using to seal off the windows. She walked through to the lounge and saw the three crates of cookies I'd just bought.

"If you bought all this, what's left to weigh her down against the winds?"

Just then we watched as a girl scout flew by the window.

Ted: Schroedinger's Knock

"What the hell?"

Peter rolled over, his wife still asleep. "Better get that."

Sighing, Peter put on some slippers. Answering the door, Peter saw a tiny calico kitten. But no one was there knocking. He looked out into the driving rain, " Nope." Then he looked to see if there was any damage from whatever the wind knocked against the door. "Nope," again.

Picking up the cat, he went inside, the wind gusting spray at his back just the door slammed. "Jane? What shall we name your new kitten?"

"Storm," she answered, still asleep. "She'll be handy when the fire comes."
