The magic move

Howdy blogaroos. Squirmy here on what is supposed to be a rainy Thursday. We just got used to the snow again and foosh- here comes the rain again. Yucko.

Today I’m here to tell you about how I have been trying to trick the Warden lately. But so far, she’s on to me.

I call my little trick “the magic move.” It all has to do with blueberry distribution order.

You see, every day, after we finish breakfast, we line up for frozen blueberries. The Warden removes the cobalt orbs from the freezer, rinses them off, and proceeds to dole them out. And we line up with The Boss on the left, the Coyote (if he is in a blueberry mood) in the middle, and yours truly on the right. The Warden has a blueberry or two in her left hand – which go to the Boss, and blueberries in her right hand which first go to the Coyote and then to me. So the order of distribution is 1, 2 and 3- with me always being 3. The 1, 2, 3 distribution continues until we have each had around 16 blueberries, give or take a few. If the Coyote isn’t in a blueberry mood, I move up to the number 2 spot.

Well in the past week or two, after always being the last guy, I decided to try and trick the Warden. After getting a couple of blueberries, I decided to try and change my location. See my diagram for my first move.

I thought she wouldn’t notice, and I would get my blueberries before the Coyote. Well- it didn’t work. Clearly the Coyote and I look different- so he still got his before me.

The next day, after I got a few berries, I tried another move – which if you refer back to my diagram it is called the second move. I jammed myself between the Boss and the cupboard, thinking that maybe the Warden wouldn’t notice. I mean we ARE both PONs. She noticed.

The Warden kind of giggled when I made my moves. I don’t see what was amusing – clearly it took some calculating on my part. I should also add that I watch the Coyote when he takes his blueberry on the off chance that he’ll spit it out. Sometimes he starts out in a blueberry mood, and then after a couple he says “nah.” It doesn’t happen often – but it did once or twice – so I’ll never forget.

So that’s my latest magic move. I know it’s not successful but I think it shows just how tricky and clever I can be. Next trick – opening the freezer door myself to get the blueberries. Now THAT would be cool. Pun intended.

Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
