Negotiating with Cookies – There’s Only Now

I brush at the muddy paw prints on my t-shirt, only to smear them around and make them worse. “How many times have I asked you not to jump on me?”

Fleegle stops bouncing for a moment to think. “Two times. Yeah, no more than two times. But you didn’t really mean it because when you really mean something you say it three times.”

“Fleegle, I’ve asked you a zillion times not to jump on me.”

“No way.”

“Yes, way. What about yesterday and the day before and the day before that?”

He spins in a circle, then starts bouncing again. “What’s yesterday?”

“The day before today.”

“Don’t be silly. There’s only now. Come jump on strangers with me and give them kisses. It’s a lot of fun and they love it. They get excited and shout and wave their arms about.”

  1. How to comment on such brutal honesty… How do we all remain so very civilised? How pure and oh how so very honest is Fleegle? God, how I wish people would jumpp on me like dogs, so honest and so pure of intent !! Dogs are so honest and pure. God, how I wish humans were the same as dogs in nature and there was no more war and no more horrible-ness in the world and as subsequently no starvation. Fleegle is the voice of now and the future. Fleegle rocks !!
