A conversation with the mom…
Hey, mom…I gotta bone to pick with you! Why is it you always give Ernie his foods before me?? I’m the oldest here! I should be fed first!!
Well, Wally, it’s because you eat faster than Ernie and I want to give him a head start. You’re licking your bowl clean looking for more while Ernie still has half his food left. And then when you’re done, you go over and push Ernie out of the way to try and eat his food.
Aw, that Ernie’s a slowpoke! He deserves to have his food eaten by me!! Besides, I’m bigger than him!! I need more food than him!!
Well, let’s talk about this “bigger” business, Wally. Because you keep getting into Ernie’s food, I think you might have put on an extra pound or two.
WHAT??!? Are you calling me fat??!?
Oh no, Wally! I wouldn’t say that! 😉 But we do need to watch your weight.
Jeez…a little more me just means there’s more to love!!
