The Mockingbird

You may or may not be aware that this week I am home recovering from minor knee surgery (that's right, "awwww" indeed). I'm recovering quickly but I still need crutches to get around the house.

Sometimes if I need a spare hand I just use the one crutch for balance and hop or hobble around the house, doing what needs to be done. Bugs find this very funny, so funny in fact that at random times throughout the day he has taken to imitating me. He locks his left knee, sticks his leg out at a funny angle and proceeds to limp around for a couple of minutes before breaking down and giggling.

The first time I saw him do it, I thought it was cute. The second time, not quite so cute. It was around the fifth time, when I suddenly turned around to discover he was following me around the kitchen doing it behind my back, that I detected a pattern here.

If I didn't know better, I'd swear he was making fun of me.
