Penny’s a shoot first, ask questions later kinda girl. But that gunslinger strategy isn’t always effective.
Like when Penny wants to snuggle with Eko, a dive-bomb or a crash-landing are not welcome from her big brother.
In fact, such tactics usually lead to an all out brawl
But in her old age Penny’s learned to be a bit more subtle in her maneuvering.
Penny starts off with just her head on the pillow. She’ll stand like this for minutes at a time
Then ever so slowly she slithers up the couch
Until finally Penny snuggles to the perfect spot. She thinks she’s pretty slick!
Eko on the other hand thinks he’s the slick one for training Penny not to jump on him
That said, I have to give this round to Penny. She’s proven the old boiled-frog story true.
If you turn up the heat slowly, they don’t realize until it’s too late!
I’m one to talk. I’m the guy who said it wouldn’t be prudent to let the dogs up with us on the chairs. Then I said, fine, just one dog. Then…you know the rest.
Call me the Frog in Chief
But Eko and I can’t be the only suckers. How have your pets slowly boiled you to get what they want?
