The chicken or the egg; which came first?
So which one was it? The chicken? The egg?
Depends on which you had first, I guess. I mean, if you had a chicken that laid an egg, obviously the chicken came first. But if all you had was an egg, and then that ol' egg happened to hatch, well then you've got a chicken. A chicken that came AFTER the egg.
MOUSES, here I am - I, Seville the Cat - solvin' another one of life's little mysteries. I keep this up and I'll have 'em all solved, for sure!
What? What's that, Peepers? What's that you're babblin' on about now?
You don't have any chickens, you say? AH, but I happen to know for a fact there are two dozen eggs in the fridge so for you, the egg came first. All twenty-four of 'em, for sure.
You're not plannin' on lettin' those eggs hatch, you say?
Then why do you even CARE which one came first?
Some cat's peeps.
But that's all beside the point, anyway, 'cause I was just solvin' this little life mystery in order to solve an even bigger mystery in the mystery pool we call life.
Yeah, yeah... I know that doesn't make much sense. Sure sounds good, though, huh? Makes me sound all philosophical and stuff.
But anyway, back to the bigger mystery I am needin' to solve. The mystery I am needin' to solve just for you, Peepers. The mystery of...
Are you ready?
The mystery of which came first; the haste or the waste?
Yes, Peepers, I AM talking 'bout you. I, Seville the Cat, AM talking 'bout how in your hurry last night to do some knittin', you ended up knittin' AN ENTIRE ROW all wrong. Yup, the whole thing was wack-a-doodle wacky and wacked.
And then, because you messed everythin' up, you had to take three rows out!
You know, 'cause you didn't notice your mistake right away.
So because of your haste, you WASTED all that time takin' out those three rows, which was a TOTAL WASTE of time, for sure.
Not to mention yarn.
Okay, so the wastin' of yarn came later. 'Cause AFTER wastin' that time takin' out your mistake, you ended up tryin' to make up for the lost time by knittin' even faster. And then...
AND THEN you ended up makin' more waste.
Yup, that's right Peepers, I saw you. I see lots of things, you know, AND I DEFINITELY SAW you makin' the exact same mistake in the pattern for a second time. I, Seville the Cat, am a very observant kitty, for sure.
So let's see... You started with haste, which produced a lot of waste. Then the waste gave you even more haste - made you work even faster - and the additional haste from the original waste made you make even more waste, which then...
My mouses, that's kinda confusin'. Confusin' like a tangled up ol' ball of yarn.
Which is what you ended up with after you figured out it would be easier to just start all over.
But on the other paw...
On the other paw, a tangled up ball of yarn is anythin' BUT waste when you're a cat, you see. So the haste produced waste which produced haste which produced waste. But although the second lot of waste was wastage for you, it was a wonderful treat and surprise for me, and therefore not wastage at all, so...
So this here...
My gosh I'm confused.
Just goes to show you: one peep's trash really is a marmalade cat's pleasure.
ANOTHER life mystery solved.
Remember to mask up, too.
You are good at spinning that yarn Seville!ReplyDelete
sounds familiar... though Grammy has learned to put in a lifeline every once in a while so if she has to 'undo' it is easier to pick up the stitches. Still a waste but less time wasted.ReplyDelete

Once a long time ago, petcretary was making a very complicated crochet afghan, and when she picked it up after not working on it for a few days she saw a big boo-boo about a foot up from where she left off...she left it in there, not for all the work to fix it, but because that way it became 'One of a Kind'! ie unique! Only a trained eye would see it anyways...LOL!
