Faraday's First Fridays



Welcome to my monthly Advice Column.
These gems of Wit and Wisdom are for Felines Only.
No Humans (or Big Sisters) Allowed.



Lesson # 471: Never volunteer for anything.

If you wait long enough, someone else - like your older brother - will do it for you.
Case in point:

Maxwell: "Need any help with that garbage disposer, Papa?"


"Here, I'll hold the box still while you lift all the parts out."


"Yup, right size. Let me just make sure this ring's on tight...."


"More parts in the bottom? Need me to go get them, Papa?"


"Uhhngghh, I'll...just be a minute...almost got it..."






I rest my case.
