Destructive vs. Constructive: The Bun Debate
The buns were having a chat around the kibble bowl this morning.
Bertie: "I really don't see why she calls our artful managing of our environment "destructive", I think it is a very "constructive" use of material, space, and time."
Mercedes: "There's no accounting for human perceptions of reality, Bertie. I mean, look at her interest in these human spaces that rent equipment to alter materials and claim they allow for humans to "express themselves" like TechShop. How is that any different than what we can do without any tools? If you ask me, I think she's just jealous that we come with the equipment to do the job and she has to go out and get hers."
Bertie: "I guess you're right, Mercedes. Probably the best we can hope for is to teach her to get us the "right" kibble, hay, treats, and surroundings and then to leave us alone."
Mercedes: "I think you'd be setting yourself up for disappointment if you hoped for anything more."
