"Hey Cuz! I'm off for a little R and R on Rat Island this week, so I need that suit for the grand opening pronto," he squeaked.
That did it! I had to find out was going on!
"What grand opening? What are you talking about?" I shrieked.
Trap looked surprised. For some strange reason he wouldn't look me in the EYE. "Uh, you mean you don't know about the grand opening?" he muttered. Then he turned WHITE, then RED, then PURPLE.
Uh-oh. I could tell this wasn't going to be good. Trap turned Purple only when he did something really stupid.
Two minutes later I found out what it was. It was worse then I tought!
It seemed a month earlier, while I was away on vacation, Trap had thrown a Wild party at my house. In the of the party my friend Dr. Karina von Fossisnout, the DIRECTOR of the Mouseum of Natural History, had called home and spoken to Trap. She had broken her leg on an expedition and wanted to know if I could step in and organize the grand opening of the Dragon Exhibit at the Mouseum. "Of course I told her no problem-o! I knew you'd want to help, right, Germeister?" Trap explained. I was ready to explode.
First, why was Trap throwing parties at my house while I was away? And second, though I wanted to help Karina, I didn't know the first thing about DRAGONS!
"So whenis the grand opening taking place?" I asked worriedly.
Trap clapped me on the back so hard I heard my teeth rattle.
"Don't worry, Gerbaby, you've got a whole week to pull this thing together!" he announced.
A WEEK?!! I felt faint. A grand opening at the New Mouse City Mouseum of Natural History is usally a great affair!
I'd need to print out flyers, write the progrem, organizing the dedication ceremony, arrange the buffet tables, order floral decorations and...
Cheese niblets! I felt sick. There was no way I could manage it all.
Just thenI noticed the paper I had been doodling on. Petunia! I couldn't disappoint her!
SoI stood on my chair, held out my ruler in the air, and squeaked: I'll Do It! "
