The other day I had two pieces of food, one bigger than the other.
I also have two dogs, one bigger than the other.
I intended to give the bigger piece of food to the bigger dog.
But that didn't happen.
Seeing that I intended to give them some of our leftover smoked pork barbecue, the dogs got very excited. They scampered and play bowed. They pushed and they shoved. And ... before I knew it ... the bigger dog pushed his way to the front and grabbed the piece of meat closest to him ... the smaller piece of meat. (Poor Jiffy!)
There's a lesson in there somewhere.
