Me: I’m home!
Emerson: MAMA! I’m so happy to see you! Please scratch my ears for me, they are driving me nuts!
Me: Emerson why do you have peanut butter in the fur on your neck?
Emerson: I HAVE PEANUT BUTTER IN MY FUR? No wonder I smell so good! Nomnomnom. Bummer, I can’t reach it.
Me: ACK! Trying to wipe it off with a towel was a BAD idea. I have only succeeded in grinding it deeper into your fur. Selby come here!
Selby: Yes Mama, what is it?
Me: Would you lick this peanut butter off of Emerson’s fur please?
Selby: Are you kidding me? That peanut butter has fur all over it. I don’t want to eat that. Nasty.
Me: But I catch you eating fur all the time! What difference does that make?
Selby: You eat broccoli all the time. Would you eat broccoli with peanut butter on it?
Me: No, I guess not.
Selby: My point exactly.
