Buffet means food

Mommy told me that on Saturday I could have a buffet.  I didn’t have a clue what a buffet was and I worried about it for 4 days.  I wondered if it was a trip, or a pet or if it hurt.

So today, Mommy said it was buffet time and she picked me up and took me outside.  I was so nervous I tried to claw my way back to the sofa.  She put me down in the middle of all the weasel dirt that we made a month ago.  Except, it wasn’t just weasel dirt.  There was food coming out of it, all over the place!!!

I ate and ate and ran to the next one and ate some more.  My tummy was full and everything tasted so good.  When I couldn’t eat another bite, I got good and comfortable on the rocks and almost fell asleep.  Mommy woke me up and told me that my buffet was over for the day, she took me inside and gave me a bath.  So, a buffet is food with oodles of choices.  I like buffets.  So, basically, the difference between buffet and dinner is that dinner comes on a plate and with a buffet you get to eat it while it comes out of the ground.  I need a dictionary.

Scum – In General

Scum Free Big Sink

From what I understand, in general, there are 3 kinds of scum and they are all icky.

  1. Soap Scum.  Mommy doesn’t like soap scum so she gets a grapefruit from the tree in the backyard and scrubs the big sink with it before I get a bath.  Mommy complains about the grapefruit, soap, scum and sink for 20 minutes and my bath only takes 2 minutes.  The rest of my bath time is spent drinking my bath water, soaking, swimming and relaxing.  In my opinion if Mommy doesn’t like the soap scum she should quit using soap.
  2. Pond Scum.  Not sure what the big deal is with pond scum, we don’t even have a pond, but apparently ‘Pond Scum’ is a verb used to describe anyone who has ever dated Aunt Fancy.
  3. Scum-of-the-Earth.  This is complicated.  ‘Scum-of-the-Earth’ is a term used to describe people who make promises and then they don’t follow up on those.  Mostly politicians.  (I am going to run for Congress someday and I won’t make any promises so that I don’t worry about keeping them)
