Day 353: Training Drills

As a descendant of swift wild foragers, you understand the critical importance of establishing daily routines.

Priorities are priorities for a reason – they can save your life (and keep you out of the slobbering jaws of those who see you primarily as “snack-sized.”)

Even when you live a life of modern domestic ease, that ancient instinct for establishing routine never fades.

Here, the best course of action is to train your large featherless assistant to carry out your daily routine – and then drill and drill (and drill and drill and drill) until she has it down pat.

Mom? Mom - it is time for my second course. Mom?

C'mon Mom - chop chop!
C’mon Mom – chop chop!
It's over there. There, Mom. Do you see it now?

Nope, not that one.

Keep going - yes, keep going....
Keep going – yes, keep going….
And the eagle has landed!
Ahhhh…the eagle has landed!
Luckily I can navigate to the third course on my own.

Well, that was better, Mom - I'd give it a "2" out of "5" stars. But we've still got a lot of work to do.

  1. Oh yes, so very much been there, done that. I was ill the other day and was lying down in my bedroom and didn’t notice it was a few minutes past dinner time. The prime diva of my group came to the bedroom door, started squawking loudly to get my attention and also rapped on the door with her beak. Such righteous indignation that it was 5 minutes past supper time and I had the nerve to be lying down.

    • Yes, Mary – this sounds oh-so-familiar! For better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness or in health….. 😉 This is how we love the feathered ones!!
