The Little Prince will always demand to do things his own way and this pesky morning ritual is a great example.
As part of our predictable routine every day, we start with a run out to the yard before coming back inside and getting ready for our morning walk. All we have to do is go out the bedroom door, down the steps, and into the yard. The Little Prince, however, must always resist every human wish. How does he do that with such a simple task?
Our bedroom door is right beside the photographer. So is the flight of steps down to the yard. For safety’s sake, we have a gate to keep the humans securely on the deck when we can’t supervise them, so Hu-Dad has to hold that open while we exit.
So, of course, Typhoon doesn’t just exit the bedroom and go down the steps. First, he must circle the entire deck and sniff all the corners before going down. He says “technically” that complies with the command to go to the yard.
