"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Okay, I know it is Wednesday.  6:00 PM on Wednesday.  I'm late.  Deal with it.  Sometimes Life happens and  gets in the way of the best laid plans.  Anyway, I DO indeed have some Words of Wisdom today.  Today, the Words of Wisdom involve the seemingly innocent-looking face you see below.  You will, perchance, notice I said *seemingly*.  There is a reason for that.


You see, *if* one decides to go to breakfast at an absolutely wonderful restaurant run by a charming culinary genius who happens to have a blog here, then there are certain rules one must follow.  Foremost among these rules would be to never, and I repeat NEVER leave half of a perfectly delectable omelette (to be savored for breakfast the following day) in the car with the *seemingly* innocent owner of the face above.  If you do, you will undoubtedly be left with this:


... a substantial hole in the top of said aforementioned breakfast delight.  The second rule one must follow is to never, NEVER assume that because the goatfather is in the vehicle too,  the savored delicacy will be safe. 

Uh. Huh.

"Assumption is the mother of the screw-up." - Angelo Donghia

Here in land of grateful-to-have-raindrops, we believe the furry face to be deceptive and slightly snarly. By chance, do the goatparents need new glasses? Someone has been licked one time too many.

That face looks too inocent. Maybe the Goatfather ate it and blamed it on that sweet adorable face?
Hmmm......
