For lunch today, the little biped had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a glass of grape juice. She was doing pretty well and hadn't made too much of a mess after having eaten three-quarters of the sandwich...
Then, she knocked over her juice cup and the grape juice went flying. Several years ago, Dad removed all the carpet because there was nice hardwood floors underneath. I knew carpet stains wouldn't be an issue. However, the dining area and the living room area are adjacent and there is an over-sized chair that is off-white with red flowers about five feet from the dining table. This chair is behind the little biped's chair and the juice droplets were heading in that direction. I knew I needed to think and move fast. This was a job for Super Sky.
I jumped up and leaped across the room in a single bound to place myself between the flying grape juice and the off-white chair. The chair was saved, but I got hit. Mom wanted to get pictures of me right away with the juice all over me, but Dad rolled his eyes at her and said they needed to clean up first and she and I could just tell the story. As it turned out, the juice stained my white fur, so there are some pictures to prove my bravado.
And on my nose?
Sometimes you just have to take one for the team.
