Benny Cannot Tell A Lie
In honor of President's Day today, I wanted to be sure to share how Benjamin is much like the long ago presidents we honor today. (You know the story about how ol' George chopped down his father's cherry tree and then confesses that he did in fact do it. And Abraham Lincoln was nicknamed Honest Abe since he walked miles to return an extra penny or something like that....) Well, baby Benny is honest too. Not in the sense that he doesn't lie but it more like his NOSE doesn't lie. This weekend was turkey cooking weekend and this takes me about an hour to do and I am not exactly the neatest cook in town. But when I was all done, Benjamin swore that there was a piece of turkey that rolled under the stove. He stood puffing and scratching at the stove until I finally believed him and fished out the lone stray nugget of ground turkey that made its way under there. Benjamin gave me, "see, I told you so" face. It's like he was saying, "don't hate the puggy, hate the nose." His nose NEVER does lie. Benny for Prez!
