The Time: Lunch time
The Occasion: Football playoffs
The Crime: Taco Theft
The Victim: Nathan
The Culprit: Jesse the dog
Soon after Nathan began eating his second taco, there was an outcry against Jesse.
"Jesse stole my taco! He ate it! He's a bad dog. He's a VERY bad dog!"
The kids tend to forget that they are at just the right level for Jesse to snatch their food right from their hands. It happens almost every time. Sometimes Jesse is sneaky about it. Other times he will nonchalantly walk by and just grab it and go. A lot of the time, they abandon their food for just a moment only to return and find it missing. Jesse steals food. It's what he does.
I asked Nathan about the incident so we could get all the facts straight.
He must have thought the story needed some embellishment.
Next time, Nathan, watch out for that dog, octopus, pipe food-snatching team!
