Easy There, Cowboy! Tortillas?

You don't have to eat all of your delicious Mexican breakfast of Huevos Rancheros, although it's hard not to. No, sometimes you can leave the tortillas and take them home for later, which is what we did this morning.

I was looking forward to those tortillas, so imagine my surprise to find the elder, and supposedly more responsible, recruit stretched out on his rack with  a Kindle Fire and a white, polystyrene box.


"Did you eat all the tortillas?" I asked quietly, with a certain degree of menace, while looking at the white box. "Er, yes."
"Tell me, if you're living with other people, is it better to be more considerate, or less considerate?"
"More considerate."
"So. Is it more, or less considerate, to eat the house supply of tortillas?"
"Less considerate."
"Correct. I'm relieved to find your logic circuits still working, despite their momentary lapse."

Go On, Drink Some Water

Sheepish tortilla grins over and forgiveness issued, I discovered the youngest recruit hunting for squirrels in the back yard, with a Daisy. Maybe he'll beat the opposition and we can eat some squirrel.

Rounds down range,

Who can resist a tortilla? They are the devil's tool. (Second only to a boxy of jelly-filled Dunkin Donuts).

The elder has a tall frame to sustain-- you must cut him some slack!
Hope the squirrel hunting was successful! :)

Young boys have big appetites.

That's a very good point, Infidel. I could only forgive...

LSP said...

No squirrels yet, Jenny, but that's not for want of trying!

I see a lot of bacon in their future, LL.
