Day 289: What Shines is Mine

When you have feathers and you live amongst the featherless beings, you can hardly help but become a trailblazer of sorts for your kind.

No matter how many years you spend studying the featherless way of life, you will likely continue to have more questions than answers.

This (of course) is because they are just so odd.

For instance, your featherless assistant goes out all the time and comes back with new items to add to the household.

Yet – even though she can go out and get new items whenever she wants to – she still remains oddly attached to certain items she brought home some time ago.

Items you want.

Items that are very shiny (and thus technically fall under the household clause of “what shines is mine.”)

This is quite shiny. I like it.

It would be obvious to anyone - Mom leaves it out right here every day so I can't miss seeing it.

And it is so shiny. Mom knows how much I love shiny things.
And it is so shiny. Mom knows how much I love shiny things.
Sometimes the direct approach is best with Mom. I'll just stand on it to let her know she needs to bring home a new one for herself.
I will just invoke the clause of “what shines is mine” by standing on it. This way she will know to go out and get another one for herself.
