Tim Versus The Parsley

There was logic in our decision to buy a parsley plant for the living room. Tim likes nibbling on plants, he likes parsley, best of both worlds. He could have a little nibble on the parsley plant, then wander off under the chair for a sleep. Right?



Wrong.

What Tim actually did, was climb into the pot, sit on the bit that wasn't occupied by parsley and eat almost the entire plant in one go. Then, quite proud of himself, he posed for this picture.

Next night he went back and finished off those little stalks you can see sticking up. Probably couldn't believe he missed them.

TIM IS SOOOOO CUTE! I want a bunny now!

I guess you need to buy more parsley.

Yeah, that's what Nikki said. I think it would be a little bit like buying more crack for a crackhead because he smoked all the crack he had in one go.

Jen said...

That's flippin' funny!

In comparing the parsley to the crack, well, at least this stuff won't kill you. It's green, grows from the ground and healthy, right? I say get the bunny more parsley.

He's too damn adorable to deny a little pleasure of parsley.

P.S. You 2 are making me want to go buy a bunny. Right. Now.

Ian, I have a question, completely unrelated to this post. A friend of mine asked me if there is a way to subscribe to a blog & get a notice that there is a new post. Is there? Unlike obsessive-compulsive me who checks my friends blogs all the time, her mom wants an email notifying her of new posts. :)

TANKS!

See, I read this thing about indigenous species living in harmony with their environment, taking what they need when they need it, but always leaving enough for the plant/animal population to recover. I guess Tim and parsley aren't ever going to have that kind of relationship, so I don't think it's a good idea to give him more

Ian said...

Yep, you can do that Alli. Under Settings - E-Mail, the BlogSend address is an address that your new posts get automatically sent to. If you have more than one person you can set up a distribution list in Google Groups.

When I saw the title I thought this was a new episode of The Herbs.

He's slightly spoiled, yes. Just a little.

Tim's not all that tough, but I'm pretty sure he'd eat Parsley the Lion for breakfast. Literally.
