"I Want Biscuit."

Blogging Friends.... I am going to begin work on my March fictional children's story today for "Minuscule is good!"!! I cannot wait!! So!! Knowing full well that I owe you all a Rose story, I wrote this one over the weekend!! However. I am also currently writing another "Therapy Session", so stay tuned for that!! Now, this is what occurs when you possess a crazy never-shuts-down head!! Sometimes I write twain posts at once!!

Speaking of my crazy never-shuts-down head. After "publishing" the other day's post, I was later reminded of a line which was spoken by Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes. Here it is. I can totally relate!!

"My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems. Give me work. The sooner the better." --Sherlock Holmes from "Sherlock Holmes"

Allow me to change that line a bit. "My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me projects. Give me work. The sooner the better." And my creative Brain Juices do!!

It was 2:00 PM. The Purple Martin on our singing bird clock had quietly chirped. It was time for me to feed Rose her afternoon meal. On February 13th, I provided myself with a "second chance" regarding baking Rose's cheesy biscuits from last month. This time? I remembered the Parmesan cheese!! Score!! On Valentine's Day, I was giving Rose a heart-shaped cheesy biscuit after dumping one cup of dry crunchy dog food into her silver bowl. We were also "baby-sitting" my two-year old niece, "Amethyst". Now. "Amethyst" and I have this habitual thing of pulling out twain baby carrots as a treat.... One for her, the other for Rose!! It is expected!! "Amethyst" even walks over and pulls open the refrigerator!! Well, on that specific Valentine's Day, we changed things up a bit. Because. Rather than give Rose a baby carrot, I pulled out this glass airtight container full of home-baked dog biscuits. "A carrot," "Amethyst" said. She says it like Elmer Fudd would!! Minus the "R" sound!! I love, love, love it!! "Well, I'm gonna give Rose a biscuit," I explained, "But you can have a carrot!!" Then, "Amethyst" said, in a sweet innocent voice, "I want biscuit." And my heart melted like vanilla-scented candle wax. How do you say "no" to that? My home-baked dog biscuits have ingredients such as flours, cheese {I used mozzarella this time rather than cheddar!!} butter, milk. It is really "cheesy bread" no different from something my Mom might bake!! Correct? I'd never give "Amethyst" a store-bought salmon biscuit that I purchased for Rose after our Winter Blast. Those are for dogs!! So, yes, I gave "Amethyst" a small bite of Rose's home-baked cheesy biscuit. Shamelessly!! Because, I've been eating them as well, and they are delicious if I do say so myself!! Yes, you read that right. Yeah, I get a ton of teasing around here for snacking on Rose's home-baked biscuits!! I am called "Shaggy" from "Scooby-Doo". Because. Apparently he noshes on Scooby Snacks? I would not know. I never watch "Scooby-Doo"!! I am told that I'll become a canine like Tim Allen in "The Shaggy Dog", grow fur and bark. Which, I also have not seen!! Oooh, can I be some sort of Scottish/"Irish"/German-Russian mutt? Because I am one!! I'm shameless, remember? And, of course, I have been mentally referred to as "weird" by my sister. What can I say? I am weird!! Guilty as charged!! And now? I'm afraid I am in a bit of trouble!! Why? Because. One week later, "Amethyst" pointed to that glass airtight container full of home-baked dog treats. "A biscuit," she said. My Mom was standing there, so she told "Amethyst" that they are "for the dog". Meanwhile, I just stood there, looking innocently guilty. An oxymoron? I do not think so!! My sister then shot me a facial expression that said this. See what you started? And in exchange I'm pretty certain I gave my sister a cockeyed smirk!! Because I am shameless!!

Ok - on this, Mom Kim is gonna chime in - I really do not see a problem with giving Amethyst one of your yummy-sounding dog biscuits. There is not a thing in them that say ONLY for a dog. I'd very likely eat them too.
(A deep buried "secret"? When I was in elementary school - WAYYY long time ago, we had a dog that we always fed Purina Dog Chow - now that specifically says DOG CHOW - I liked it too! Didn't eat much of it at a time HOWEVER it was not just a chance eating - I would have a couple chunks every now and then).

"Ha ha ha, I love the reference to Scooby Doo!". Thanks!! I am called "Shaggy" from my youngest brother--Uncle Michael to Rose!!-- so he deserves the credit for it!! Although. I can do a pretty good Shaggy impersonation!! Zoinks!! ;)
"Your cheesy biscuits sound yummy! Your sister doesn't know what she's missing!!!". I can't but agree!! ;op
