The first tail belongs to a chicken.
Most days, around 4 pm, I give one of my girls a nurse and cuddle for a few minutes in the back yard. I'm kicking back relaxing and find that petting a chook is quite good for the stress levels. The girls seem to like it too.
Today however, Coral was really agitated. I asked her, "What's up Coral? Daddy always give you a cuddle, silly girl." She just got more agitated which is really out of character for my girls.
So I got a bit cross. "Sit still. You know you have to have your cuddle."
And, that was when she opened her bowels over my shirt and shorts. Awww man. Next time I won't just assume she is being naughty.
The second is a fish tail.
One of my sons told me proudly he had the indoor aquaponics system I built him working again. "Great stuff mate!"
A week later he rang to say the lettuces he'd planted had all died. So I said, "What are you using to power the plants?"
He replied, "Electricity."
"No. What are you using to provide nutrients to the plants?"
He says, "Water."
*sigh* I decide to keep it simple. "What fish do you have in the tank?"
