Common, take your minds up out of the gutter.
You know how sometimes you want to camouflage a sneeze in a lecture hall when everyone is so attentive, you can hear a pin drop?
Taking your parent's car out of the garage for a spin by easing the handbrake down, and engaging cruise control?
Eating something decadent that you don't want to share?
I'll tell you a story.
Years ago, my auction buddies and I attended a Saturday morning sale. Usually there are sales people selling snacks on the outside, but this day in question, oddly they did not show up.
It's kinda hard to sit quietly after a certain time, and not favour the taste buds with at least a candy.
So there I was, sitting with my girlfriends, sharing some sweets amongst ourselves.
Trying desperately to open the candy without creating a stir, nor drawing attention to the fact that we were eating.
As fate would have it, the more quietly I tried to open the candy wrapper, the more noise it made.....what are the odds?
Then, lo and behold, a lady who was a staunch auction sale aficionado who was sitting in the row in front of us, turned around and announced, (I couldn't make this up if I tried), "I hear paper wrack-a-ling."
It was so funny, but we gave her one of the sweets to keep her quiet.
Last night reminded me of that Saturday morning. My daughter was sitting on the couch watching tv, and trying in vain to open and eat a raisin biscuit without Brownie hearing.
Brownie's ears work at optimum all the time, so she did not have a chance at fooling him. There she was sitting on the couch with her hands closed and her mouth quiet with no chewing, and he KNEW there was food around.
He had heard paper wrack-a-ling too.....
I KNOW you have something eating up there....
What have I got to do? Jump through hoops?
(Not any raisins though)
