Mom headed over to the kitchen for a snack. I just knew it was time for something delicious!
I trotted along at her heels, and headed for my spot on the rug near the sink. I anxiously awaited for whatever mouth-watering goodie she may intentionally or unintentionally drop my way.
Mom was busy at the counter. I sniffed and sniffed. My tummy quivered! It was almost time!
Mom popped a bit of something into her mouth and started to chew. I put on my biggest, most pleading eyes and cocked my head a little to one side (humans love that) and soon Mom was reaching her hand out to me with an offering.
Eagerly, I took the morsel from her palm – and then YUCK! Spat it out onto the floor. You’ve got to be kidding me! I was this excited over an ORANGE??
(sighs) Well, Mom liked it.
