Me (holding my two gerbils and talking to them as if they actually understand what I am saying): “No, you don’t get a food refill until your entire bowl is empty.”
Jamie & Loki: *wait until I am at work, then conveniently knock over their food bowl spilling the few remaining (I suspect not so tasty) bits*
My mum: *walks by the cage and sees the food bowl lying face down. She puts it back where it was, without adding food to it*
Me, after returning home: “Oh good, you ate everything!” *fills up food*
Well, I guess in a way everyone’s happy. But I wonder who’s smarter here… Until today I thought it was me.
Maybe I do speak gerbil. Or they do understand me and they just pretend they’re all cute and innocent.
Fuzzy little basterds! :3
