Happy Scholarly Saturday everyone! As the world emerges from its quarantine I am noticing a disturbing trend. It seems that all the lessons our humans have learned over the past few months are being forgotten. Depending on where they live, humans have started going back to work. Humans are going into shops. They are going to restaurants. And they are doing this without us. I don't understand. And it makes me sad.
So now humans, think back to the not so distant past. Do you remember those days of sleeping late and snuggling with us? Do you remember how happy we were when we knew you weren't leaving us for the day? Do you remember how all our insecurities melted away because we knew we weren't alone? Weren't those happy times? Sure you feared for your lives every time you went to the mailbox, but then you came back to the security of your home. You washed your hands, resisted the urge to drink bleach, and snuggled with us. And it was good. Let's all do that again!
Think back to Lesson 33. That was when we learned that going to school and work is completely unnecessary. We learned how to print all the money we wanted at home. We learned that young humans didn't need to leave us to go to school. And as we quarantined, we learned that all these lessons were not the silly musings of a pug, but there was a happy truth to them. So why have you forgotten?
Since you've learned this already once before, I have faith you can easily learn it again. So for this week's homework, I want you to stop venturing outside. I want you to stay home and snuggle with your fur babies. And I want you to feed us lots of snackies. Pretend the world isn't emerging from quarantine and stay home with us. It'll be easy! And everyone will be happy again!
Stay safe everyone and don't forget to wash your paws!
