If you give Benjamin Bunny a treat,
he will want a sip of water.
So you'll fix him a fresh bowl of cool water.
When he’s finished drinking the water,
he will want to dunk one of his toys in the bowl.
When its completely submerged,
he will want to scoop it out.
There will be a splash.
Eventually, the only thing left in the bowl will be the toy.
You’ll have to help him get it out and put it somewhere to dry.
When Benjamin realizes his front paws are soaked,
he will want to dry them off.
While you go and search for a towel,
Benjamin will try to lick the water from his paws.
When that seems like it is taking too long,
he will decide to dry them on the rug.
Benjamin will run in circles around the dining room table as fast as he can.
When he can’t run one more step,
he will collapse in a heap.
Exhausted from all this exercise,
Benjamin’s stomach will probably start to growl.
If his stomach starts to growl,
Benjamin Bunny will most definitely want another treat.
And the cycle will continue again….and again….and again…
This post is a written in the format of If You Give A Moose A Muffin by Laura Joffe Numeroff. I felt like I was living the basic concept of the book while experiencing the events described above. Thus, the inspiration for this post was born.
