Stirring the Pot

Duff here. I was looking over the Courtney photo album, and came across a picture of Aunt Genevieve. Have You ever known Someone who couldn’t just let things be? Had to shake Life up just to keep Things Interesting? Well, that was Her. She would get into Mischief whenever She could. Chewing up Slippers. Playing catch-Me-if You-can with car keys. One year, She got into the beautifully wrapped Christmas presents, and had a pre-holiday extravaganza all of Her own. The Day before the Big day. She lived unstuck.

The curious part? Her Mistress could tell Her: Don’t stir the Pot. But You knew She was going to do just That. The Family might be dozing. Or reading. Or behaving in a Sensible manner. But when You saw that look on Her Face? Aunt Genevieve was ready to Stir the Pot. She couldn’t help herself. Lived unstuck, She did.

How about You? Do You stir the pot every now and again, just for Kicks and Giggles? Or are You sedate and quiet? I say: Mix it up. Go for a smidge of both. That’s what Makes Life interesting. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#stirring-the-pot

Here’s to the Movers, the Shakers, and the Mischief-makers.
