My Friend, Mr. Murphy

Duff here. I’d like to introduce My Friend, Mr. Murphy. Isn’t He a Handsome Fellow? Now, I know Him by reputation only as I have not met Him in person. He lives in Tucson and, even in Summertime, enjoys the outdoors. He goes into His back Yard and lazes under a Tree. Talk about living unstuck.

He does have a Curious habit, though. Recently, He got a Super Toy for Christmas. He played with it. Chewed on it. Tossed it about. After a While? He took it into the Back yard and buried it. Perhaps He was tired of it. Or maybe He didn’t want to wear it out too soon. Or worse yet, He didn’t like It. To help, His Owners have dug up Other Toys. Cleaned Them. Returned Them to Him. And away He went. (In any event, there are Three free Floating toys in mysterious and hidden Places.) He lives unstuck.

How about You? Do You use every Fun Thing you have received? Or do You follow Mr. Murphy’s lead and tuck Them away? I say: Seize the Day. Play with whatever You have been gifted. Enjoy It thoroughly. Mom has tucked away a few Things that are Never to be discovered again. (I’m not recommending that Strategy.) Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#burying-dog-toys

Seize the moment. Remember all the women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.
