I never tried to make spaghetti until after I moved away for college. I had experience making macaroni and cheese and so I figured it was basically the same technique, just a different shape. I got the water boiling and put the noodles in. Somehow it didn’t occur to me that the noodles were more than twice the height of the pot. They stuck out over the edge and within a few seconds caught fire. Luckily it was only half the box and after I cleaned up the mess I had a second chance.

Our dog goes nuts for carrots. She knows the word, she knows them by sight, she knows the sound of the little plastic bag they are stored in the refrigerator. But unlike most everything else she is allowed to eat, we eat them as well. This confuses the heck out of her. “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, now… what do you have there? Carrots? I didn’t realize it was snack time already! What a wonderful surprise! Hey wait what are you doing with tha… WHY ARE YOU EATING MY CARROTS! WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE!! WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS TORTURE!!!”
It would really be so much easier if pets would just use english already. I spend too much time trying to learn dog pantomime. They should get with the program and be more specific! If you have to go outside then don’t start playing with Mr. Squeaky Bone when I offer him to you. It’s confusing for everyone.
