Be careful what you wish for.
I wanted a dog in Minecraft. I wanted a dog a dog a dog a dog a dog!!!!!
I got a dog.
Then I wanted TWO dogs, because then I could have a puppy!!!!!
Well, I got two dogs.
First, I compromised my principles, because I had to slaughter any number of cows to get steaks to feed my dogs, but I was able to face it because: You do that for your dog, right?
So I fed two dogs and they made a puppy! It was SO CUTE!
Now I have six dogs. They don’t need to be fed, unless I want more dogs (please, God, no), so that isn’t the problem. The problem is, they all jump into any water around (I’m right by water), then they shake the water off. Splash splash splash thwappa-thwappa-thwappa splash thwappa-thwappa-thwappa thwappa-thwappa-thwappa splash thwappa-thwappa-thwappa splash…. You get the idea.
Then they run in and out of my house ALL the TIME. Splash runinthehouse thwappa-thwappa-thwappa jumponthebed…. Six dogs, shaking off water and jumping on the bed….
What can I do? I could slaughter them all, which is, you know, not an option. I could take them into the woods and give them the sit command and leave them there, which also seems unkind, not to mention uncomfortably wicked stepmotherish. Besides, I would hear them barking all the time. Did I mention that they also bark all the time? Well, they bark all the time. I could give them the sit command and move to another island.
What I actually did is create another world and now I’m playing it. No dogs. If I come across a cat, I don’t say I won’t try to tame it. But, if I do, I’ll live with it for a while before I decide if I’m going to clone the damn thing.
I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a non-cheese cheesy vegan spread that non-vegans love.
