But We Are Behaving

Hu-Dad asked us for a few minutes so he could do some work, yet he seemed perplexed when we said we are behaving.

We're quietly wrestling, so what's the beef? - but we are behaving
We’re quietly wrestling, so what’s the beef?

Hu-Dad has so many funny rules in his office so he can do his busyness. For example, we can’t sleep in his chair (ahem, Frankie), stand on his desk (yeah, Typhoon), or crash into Hu-Dad while doing zoomies (Roscoe). This may be hard to believe, but we shouldn’t chew on his toes either (Landon needs reminders of that one). So when Hu-Dad asked why the Trouble Brothers were wrestling, Typhoon and Roscoe said, “But we are wrestling quietly and—for us—that means we are behaving.”

    I imagined all those activities taking place at once and thought of Schrodingers Cat. (The herd would make some good cartoons.)
