When humans and dogs collide: negotiations for todays shifting times - humor


This dawn I absolute to find myself. I formerly looked accelerate to the spiritual journey that would characterize who I was as a person. But then I looked into my mirror and realized that the character I saw in that mirror was me. So I then figured, why spend all this time discovery for my part when I before now know where I am?

Since I prearranged about 80 years for this quest and complete it in about eight seconds, I had some free time that I considered necessary to allocate to a cause. I had a great idea: I would deliberately drop a dog so that the owner of that dog would ask me what I was doing, to which I could respond, "Well, my cause was to see your corollary and my bring about was, indeed, your reaction. " This would make my cause and achieve more or less the same. But I had to give up on difficult this experiment, since - after all - where would I perhaps find a dog?

Dogs are funny folks in that colonize claim to love them, but when it comes down to it, we have so many damaging terms which rotate about them. For example, if you are told that you are being sent to the doghouse, that doesn't mean you are being tossed to an area of luxury. More so, you will be sent to the same place as the dog, some small area consisting of a leaky roof and a food bowl. Even if owners try to encourage their dogs that this is some sort of fantasy land, the actuality is that most owners wouldn't want to spend more than 15 log in one. Those who do spend more than 15 action are only doing so since they are stuck in the location. . .

On the other hand, we also have the fair statement, "Hey, buddy, I inflexible you in that race. " Of avenue the announcement can exist devoid of the "hey, buddy," but what fun would that be? Such a account means, basically, that one anyone defeated the other in a race in such a way that a dog would defeat a human. Now, this is the contrary of the doghouse reputation, for the reason that here the dogs are given more acclaim than humans as contrasting to less. This could only mean one thing: the dogs negotiated this with the humans in order to confirm abide by from the common populace. . .

But who are these dogs? And, more importantly, who were the humans asked to negotiate? I don't have a conundrum with dogs, but if we are going to negotiate with them, I think we must send some of our best humans to do so. Otherwise, assume the budding chaos:

Human: Okay, so let's negotiate here.

Dog: How about you give us the power to speak, like I am right now, and we will allow you to rename tree casing to "speak" as a substitute of "bark"?

Human: You are too fair. Let's do that immediately. But to make sure you are not being paid ripped off, we will throw in some table scraps from an all-you-can-eat-restaurant where each thinks they are larger eaters than they exceedingly are.

Dog: Agreed.

Human: Bark!

But I digress.
