Roller's Philosophical Friday: Laughter
1/. Snuffling - as demonstrated this week - the muddier the muzzle and the more involvement of the human face the better
2/. Well placed mud on the face, Dragon is particualrly good at the full mud pack camouflage
3/. Stealth mule - this is the creep up behind a human tactic and then blow softly in to their ears when they don't know you're there, this is the Mini's speciality.
4/. The wall of death kitty cat, when Catanian is wound up by nothing at all and does a great impression of a cat in a washing machine around Dragon's stable.
The possibilities are endless my friends! Sometimes the humans make us laugh too. There is the never ending, appalling fashion sense of FH, what passes as fashion is strange.... especially with our embellishments of straw and mud. FH regularly leaves for work with paw prints, straw and muzzle marks on her clothes, good job she works somewhere understanding. Humans are also exceptionally sophisticated until they fall in to the muck heap or anywhere else muddy.... hilarious! The best laugh is when the human is frustrated and loses their temper at an inanimate object like the broom that keeps falling over and then just has to laugh at themselves for being so ridiculous. Of course us Muleteers try not to laugh too much in the humans' face, we blink widely and ensure that the humans think we wouldn't possibly laugh at them...... we are laughing with them ;-)
As it's January I reckon we could all do with a little more laughter in our lives. We need all the help we can get in these cold, dark months. With that in mind here's my thought for today
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
