The Two Owl Rule

Jib here.

I went to work today. I saw my kids! I kissed my kids. I love my kids!

Mom told them all about owls. When two owls go walking, the first one does the talking. I was one of the owls!

I was the owl letter "a." I wore a sign. Mom said the sign had the owl letter "a" on it. Mom was the owl letter "e." She wore a sign, too.

We went walking. We walked in my kids' classroom. Mom went first. I walked behind her.

Mom said I was a silent owl. That meant I couldn't bark. I couldn't whine. I couldn't say anything. I couldn't even yawn. I had to be quiet. Silent.

Mom got to do the talking. That fits. She talks all the time.

She said, "Eeeeeeeee, eeeeeeeee, eeeeeeee." She sounded like a mouse, not an owl.

I had to be silent. So I was quiet.

We were two owls named "e" and "a." We went walking. Together.

I told Sailor and Zoe about it when I got home. Sailor asked if I got any cookies. Zoe asked if I hooted. She said owls hoot, they don't "eeeeeeee."

So Mom confuzled me again.

I hope she doesn't confuzle my kids. I don't know how to explain the two owls thing. Without a lot of growling and barking and yipping.

And hooting.

I can see why you were confused, Jib. Took me quite a while to figure it out, too! Owls are funny that way.
