Live with a flock of them long enough, and you will soon start to see that large featherless beings are the most high-strung species on earth.

For instance, sometimes they seem to want to spend all day long staring at what comes out of your hind end.

Or they might spend hours examining every fluffy feather that falls off of your body.

And on certain (particularly unpleasant) days, you might find them shining bright lights into your round black eyes….and nose….and mouth….and feet….and, well, other places you consider firmly off-limits.

Sometimes after one of these sessions, your personal large featherless assistant (who clearly feels guilty, as well she should) may offer you a waffle treat.

Here, it is important to a) quickly gain ownership of the waffle treat so there is no question who it belongs to, and b) make it crystal clear the waffle is no way makes up for the unpleasant experiences of earlier that day.

I will just quickly gain ownership of this waffle by staring it into submission.

Yes, that is close enough, Mom. And don't even think this waffle will make me forget about the fashionably challenged being in the lab coat from earlier today.

Two waffles? Nope. Three waffles? Not even close. Unlimited waffles? Well, now we're starting to get somewhere....
