You Can’t Lie to Mom

Poor Bubba. Once again, he suffers the consequences of being Pinky’s younger sibling. If Pinky had been born sooner after Tai Shan, would she have developed as such a little terror? Who knows? We only know that Bubba is made of softer stuff (frosting?) and the least look from mom can send him into a quivering mass. He can’t lie to mom like Pinky can.

So, after Pinky has taken off for another campaign swing to get endorsements from some VIP’s (Very Important Pandas) Bubba is left to face the music…

I'll talk! I'll talk!

I’ll talk! I’ll talk!

Oh Bubba…you are such a pushover!

Be the Bear! (You can do it, Bubba!)

      Perhaps, perhaps. He needs a little toughening up for sure. Maybe he should buy Pinky’s memoir: “Being the Bear: A Panda Princess’ Guide to Getting What You Want.”

          I’m afraid Bubba is a much bigger softie than his more Pinkitudinal sister. Perhaps a quiet cabinet post might be his best placement: Secretary of Stuffed Animals, or something equally non confrontational.

      Pinky: I won’t tell on you, if you don’t tell on me. Now, Bubba, he’s gonna have some ‘splaining to do when I get home.

      I’m just afraid of what Pinky will do when she gets home from…um…wherever she is right now.

      I don’t think Mei was angry at Bubba. he is such a pushover, and it did not take much effort to get him to spill the beans. Now when Pinky gets home…that could be another story.

    I don’t think Pinky wil be annoyed with Bubba when she gets back from her mission to enlist the Twinkies’ help if she’s successful !! She knows he’s just a baby & despite what some people think she adores him. Besides, even if she does get a little miffed, she’s not the type of panda to hold a grudge !! Pinky4President !!

    Is Mr. Bun hailing a taxi to get out of the way of Momma Mei’s wrath? I love Bubba’s crib…he still does love his den doesn’t he! Pinky is in Big Trouble.

      Pinky is in very big trouble. The phone will be ringing once again, and it won’t be good news for Pinky!
      Mr. Bun is nobody’s fool!

    I knew that Bubba wouldn’t be able to keep a secret, especially not to his Mama, but I had no idea that he’d cave so fast and so soon. Poor stressed out Bubba, and poor scared Mr. Bun.
    Pinky is in sooo much trouble when she gets home! I wonder if Papa will step in this time. Hmm.

      I think it is safe to assume that Pinky will be in huge amounts of trouble when she gets home. And yes, Bubba does not stand up well at all to interrogation by Mommee. But expecting Daddee to come down hard on his little princess? I think Mommee is much more up to the task of discipline.
