The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky


Periwinkle woke up early because she knew it was Tuesday and that was the day her super guy Stinky was coming over!  She had to really put on her thinking cap this week and then all of a sudden it dawned on her what day it was.


WOOOSHHH.....Stinky tumbled out of the teleportation tunnel and the two rushed to hug each other. and share whisker kisses. Stinky told Periwinkle how much he missed her and she told him she missed him too.

Always excited to start their adventure, Stinky asked what they were going to do.  Periwinkle handed him a sombrero which he put on but was still confused.

"Gee Periwinkle, nice hat but what is going on?"  Periwinkle grabbed a sombrero of her on and said that today was May 5th.  Stinky still didn't understand until Periwinkle said: "It's Cinco de Mayo!"  Oh wow, I knew it was Tuesday but forgot the date"  said Stinky.  Periwinkle said she did some research and they could celebrate and still stay safe.

Into the Teleportation Tunnel they went and with a WOOSH they arrived at their very own Fiesta! 
Both tabbies were relieved that the Fiesta was practicing Social DisDancing!

 Periwinkle and Stinky decided to check out the rest of the Fiesta.  First they came across a GIANT pinata float.  Of course, Stinky had to climb up onto it.  Periwinkle was so impressed with his climbing skills!


While they walked around, Periwinkle told Stinky the story of Cinco de Mayo.  "Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza" explained Periwinkle.

"Oh boy, are we going to have tuna tacos for lunch?" asked Stinky.   "Now that you mentioned it, it IS lunch time so let's get a table and grab a bite to eat.  I think tacos might not be good for us but I ordered us some Temptations.




After lunch,  they headed over to a photo booth so they wouldn't forget to get a Memory Photo.


"Hey Periwinkle, I hear music, let's go find out where the band is playing" said Stinky.  Periwinkle agreed and they followed the sound until the came upon a fabulous band.

It was time to head to the teleportation tunnel.  On the way there, the tabbies ran into a woofie who was also celebrating and stopped to chat and take a quick photo.  In spite of the fact that humans don't speak cat or dog, cats and dogs can easily talk to each other.


When they got back to Periwinkle's house, neither one of them wanted the day to end.  Periwinkle's brofur Raz was playing the guitar and Periwinkle's Mom let them use her phone to do a Happy Color painting.




All too soon, it was time for Stinky to go home so he could have his dinner and take his medicine.  After paw pats, headbonks and whisker kisses, Stinky got into the Teleportation Tunnel. "Wait" said Periwinkle!  She ran up to him to give him his copy of the memory photo and for one more whisker kiss.   WOOOSH and he was on his way home.  Periwinkle held her photo close to her heart, wiped a tear and started counting the hours until next week.

Periwinkle and Stinky hope you have a great Cinco de Mayo!
