How Gundel tried to steal Christmas - The nineteenth door
I sat at my desk wasting my time away on randomly clicking my way through the internet when I heard that sound behind me. At first I didn't even look. There's still an open parcel on my table and Gundel likes to check it out every, now and then. The little lady likes to bite heavy paper and plastic, but she doesn't nibble on it like Greebo used to on cardboard. Sometimes she'll carry it away.
Then I started to hear something rustling and a sound as if something was falling a small distance, more like sliding back into place. And again. When I finally turned around to see what was going on there, Gundel was sitting next to the gift bag my co-workers had given me. I had seen her look inside before, but what was it that was so interesting to her?
Unfortunately you can't see it in this picture and when she managed to lift the mysterious item, she dropped it so fast again that I couldn't get a picture at all.
It was the plastic baggie with the Christmas cookies! Ponder, the old master thief, has taught her well, it seems. First the baubles off the tree (we are at Gundel: 4 Ponder: 2 Tree:0, and I'm not counting the little LED candle that I had put in front of the tree and that she keeps knocking off the stairs), the constant attempt to pull the ball chain off, now the cookies, what will be next?
Not that Gundel is feeling guilty at all ....
