There were strong gusts in our area last evening, and for some reason, the satellite for our home stopped working. The human pet sat down and decided to watch one of three DVDs she had rented: Eragon. As the movie played, my pet's face was so comical that, at first, I thought the film might just be a comedy. But when I saw the big, blue dragon on the screen, all thoughts of comparing and contrasting to the classic Puff the Magic Dragon escaped me.
"About the only thing they got right with this movie was that there was a boy named Eragon, and he had a dragon named Saphira," she exclaimed in frustration when the movie finished.
I kept my paws crossed that the television might work since two hours had passed.
The human pet went for the remote and attempted to turn it on. A blue screen popped up, stating there was no signal.
Hmm. Odd. Eragon had a blue dragon. We had a blue screen. Coincedence? I thought not.
This morning, when the human pet woke up, she checked the television again. A blue screen still appeared.
I'm not leaving this house even if my very life depended on it. Forget that!
Note to self: Even though Eragon might be a stinky movie, take no chances and keep your opinions to yourself lest you wish to have your satellite stolen by an angry blue dragon named Saphira.
