Relationship Issues

This is Ethan and his friend Addison. We are watching her for a bit this afternoon.
I was cleaning when I heard Addison singing, "Here comes the bride, here comes the bride." I looked around the corner in time to see her mount the top step on my porch, where Ethan was and announce, "You may now kiss the bride. You may now kiss the bride. You may now kiss the bride!" And what had Ethan's undivided attention? An immense cucumber, stolen from my fridge, which he was holding like a cob of corn, and systematically biting out chunks and spitting them on the ground. I rolled my eyes and made a mental note that there was a new mess requiring my attention. A few minutes later, they came in where I was. I recognized Ethan in puppy mode, as he was on all fours and barking. Meanwhile, Addison is still following, singing, "dum, dum, de dum, dum, dum, de dum". I realized there was great truth in this! Oh! Sister(s)! (a favorite from Pride and Prejudice) While we are busy trying to have a relationship with a man we have identified as worthy of us, he is eating a cucumber and playing puppy! Keep this in mind and it will help you understand that crazy male/female gap. Or at least recognize it!
