It figures. I’m always the last to know anything around here. So Andre and Buddy have already written their little piece and I didn’t even know we were going to do this. I mean we talked about it but there wasn’t a vote or anything. I thought it was still on the table for discussion.
Speaking about table. Does anyone know what time dinner is going to be?
A funny thing happened the other day. I want to tell you about it because if you play your cards right it may work for you as well.
So Jon was out mowing the lawn and it got to be supper time. Jon being the good guy that he is comes in and fixes our dinner. Perfect. Life goes according to plan. All is well.
A little later Patty comes in and she sees us poor guys hanging around the kitchen looking hungry (work on this if you don’t have it down really well) and she thinks, “Oh my, Jon forgot to feed the boys.” Neither Andre or I said a word, we just continued to act pathetically hungry, wagged our tails and did our “is there any hope at all for starving dogs?” routine.
Patty looked out the window to see Jon still mowing. She looks at us. She looks out the window again. She says, “Oh what the heck, I can feed you guys as well as Jon can.”
We get our second meal and take care of it as fast as we did the first course. Life is getting better all the time.
Jon came in a bit later. We tried our pathetic act again.
Jon didn’t buy it.
You got to find the weak link in this process for it to work. Play it up big. I wouldn’t recommend doing it every day – but I think it’s good for a second shot down the road a bit.
