Domestic Bliss

Prava se Muka ne da Sakriti 1 ~ Petar Meseldžija

They came upon his upturned frame, cogs and flywheel spinning, amongst the cindered undergrowth.
Axiom proposed they leave him where he lay, he was, after all, she reminded Reflex, the reason they were in this pickle.
Ignoring all protocol (as was his want) Reflex extended his hand to return the troublesome creature right-way-up.
Curtail, oblivious to good fortune but once more upright, emitted an electro-magnetic-pulse to evict all manner of dust and soot from his works.
This careless action caused Axiom to jump back sharply covering her chip-cavity and ejaculating an ancient curse involving family lineage and interlaced sexual congress.
Curtail attempted an apologetic whimper and rolled doleful eyes in her direction (he did know which side his bread was buttered).
Reflex slapped him across the head causing another (less practised) whimper and a metallic echo from the surrounding charcoal forest.
“Shoulda got a fuckin' cat” muttered Axiom as they made their way onward.

You are so right, Pisces
Get 'em too high and they can't tell if they're on their way there then or already here now! ;p

Moineau: Inside outside who knows? Our pet cat has obviously sidled into my unconscious ;]

Reflex, the reason they were in this pickle

How exactly does one get into a pickle, anyway? I mean, it would have to be rather large- even then it'd be tight squeeze.

You've been tagged by the way. :)

Perhaps you get into a pickle by falling into a jar of vinegar :]
