 “Connor!”

Connor scrambled down the stairs, alarmed by the angry tone of Abby’s voice.

“Why can’t you be more careful?” she demanded, gesturing at the overturned mug and the pool of tea spreading across the table and dripping to the floor below.

“What?” Connor protested. “I didn’t spill it. In fact, I was looking forward to drinking that.”

“Well it didn’t knock itself over, did it?”

“So it’s automatically my fault?”

As the argument raged on, they remained oblivious to the hidden observer on top of the cupboard. Still buzzing slightly from the sugar and caffeine, Rex licked his lips.

LOL!! Naughty Rex! And I hate to think what kind of havoc a buzzed flying dinosaur could cause... *g*

Heehee! It probably *is* Connor's fault - he might have inadvertently given Rex a liking for tea when he let him have some one time. I can see Connor letting Rex lap up the last of the tea, just like I can see him sharing chocolate and wotsits with his little flatamte.

But Rex on a high is quite a scary thought.

Now we know the real reason Rex can fly!

I'm certain that Connor and Rex are a bad influence on each other sometimes.

They bonded when being chased by a pteranodon, and now they are inseparable! A boy and his (girl's) lizard should never be parted!

Lol brilliant. Rex is a menace ;)

He is, but he's a cute little menace, so they'll probably forgive him eventually.

LOL! I like the thought of Rex high on caffeine and sugar *bg*.

I've had Rex on a sugar high in a drabble before, after Connor fed him chocolate. Rex is definitely getting some bad habits from Connor. Connor, apparently, just doesn't learn.

Ooops! Bad Rex!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2009 10:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
And he doesn't seem at all sorry about getting poor Connor into trouble for something that wasn't his fault.

High!Rex frightens me a bit LOL.

High!Rex is quite a scary thought.

Poor Connor getting the blame again! Rex on a sugar high sounds a bit hazardous for everyone else.. and he's not sorry, is he!

I think Connor and Abby are about to have a very eventful afternoon once Rex really gets going.

*snickers*
Naughty little Rex!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:22 am (UTC) (Link)
I think Rex has been picking up bad habits from Connor. And possibly a caffiene and sugar craving after all the chocolate that I'm sure Connor gives him when Abby isn't looking.

Hee! Naughty Rex.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:23 am (UTC) (Link)
indeed. Sometimes I'm not sure which one of them is more trouble - Rex or Connor!
lilyroseharper From: lilyroseharper Date: March 10th, 2009 05:23 am (UTC) (Link)
Bad Rex! Poor Connor being blamed.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:23 am (UTC) (Link)
Abby was rather quick to jump to conclusions about the culprit, wasn't she? Poor Connor.

Mmmmmm!!! I really got the sense of naughty Rex enjoying his illicit drink :) Fab!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 08:26 am (UTC) (Link)
Rex is a naughty little lizard, but I bet even Connor forgives him once he turns that cute lizardy charm on.

*tsk*! Bad Rex!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 10th, 2009 01:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
*giggle* He's as bad as Connor some days!

lol Poor Connor.

Thanks. Rex's inquisitive nature keeps getting Connor into trouble.

LOL Rex the little troublemaker!!! Nice drabble

Rex and Connor are like partners in crime sometimes. Although on this occasion he doesn't seem at all bothered that he's got Connor into trouble!
