A Trap for Miss Julia

August 1, 2013

The kids came back from the Bryan(t) Family Reunion with a pair of jump ropes.  Tonight in the living room Mason built a trap to catch his sister with the assistance of his prospective prey, Miss Julia.  He wrapped the rope around the leg of the sofa table and in between the legs of Charlotte’s old rocking chair.  When the trap was complete, he sent Miss Julia into the kitchen to retrieve some bait.

“Pick something you like,” he said.

“Masey, I can’t open the frigerator,” she said from the kitchen.

Mason raced into the back of the house and came back with a large orange carrot.  While he fine tuned the trap Miss Julia sampled the bait.  Once he was finished he place the carrot under the rocking chair and waited for Julia to pounce.  She grabbed the carrot, raced off to her bedroom, and left Mason with his thoughts on how to build a better Miss Julia trap.
