... Near disaster

I was frolicking on her bed one day last week. Tra la !
She had been neglectful and left her suede mitten there.
I am a curious bird so I thought I would investigate.
I thought how cozy and warm it would be to snuggle inside.
I left my tail feathers poking out the bottom and just as I got all
comfy it I found I could not back out or go forward. I was stuck!
I could hear her saying "Oh how cute."

I don't think so ! I wriggled about which she thought was even
cuter! Finally came the dawn and she ran for the scissors and the
mitten open to free me! Phew! My little life passed before me..
Pffffft, like that.

Not to worry I have made a full recovery. I wonder what I can get into next?
