Tartok Tuesday – False Alarm

minding my own business

There I was minding my own business

drop food

When suddenly I thought I heard someone drop food on the kitchen floor.

False alarm

Just a false alarm. No dropped food.

wake me.

Wake me if anything hits the floor.

    Trust your instincts. If you thought you heard food drop, then our guess is there IS something tasty languishing somewhere on the tile waiting for you!

    Food false alarms are the worst kind of false alarms.

    That causes a furry stampede in our house. Our only hope is to get out of the way…

    We have heard that getting “under foot” while the humans are preparing to cook is the single best way to encourage food to fall on the floor. Not that we’ve ever actually tried it or anything, but we’ve heard it works. Just saying. 😉

    Ayla sez: Are you SURE nothing dropped, Tartok? If your ears are anything like mine — well, I can hear a chip bag rattle from three rooms away!

    That is exactly like my dog, from fast asleep to ready to snatch up a treat in nothing flat.

    It’s good to have an early first alert system in times like these! lol
