Hello friendlies! Lulu here with another life tip! I have a multi-part tip for you this time, but it boils down to this: Know when to go run, know when to slow ’em. Specifically, don’t run in places where you might fall down.
Here at our house we have some rooms that are carpeted and some rooms that have floors made out of tile. The floors that are made of tile have a lot of sisal runners on them to provide traction, but still, there are sometimes treacherous stretches of tile on the way from the carpet to the next runner, plus if you hit the runners when you’re moving fast, they still might slip out from under you. Which might make you wonder why the runners are called runners. That’s English for you, I guess. Anyway, it’s prudent to slow down when approaching a carpet-to-runner transition, as illustrated in the following video:
It’s also prudent to keep a nose out when on the carpet, because you never know what sort of crumbs might be lurking in there from an earlier training session or, you know, a human eating a cookie. And when you find something interesting, even if you can’t eat it, you might be able to roll in it. Which brings me to the bonus lyrics portion of today’s life tip!
Know When To Slow 'Em
On a warm springtime morning On the carpet in the great room I was romping with my Funzler Playing keep away with Dad There was tugging, there was squeaking And then there was some throwing And when I went to chase it I made sure not to lose my feet You got to know when to go run Know when to slow 'em Know when to walk real slow 'Cuz you'll fall down if you run You never bring your stuffie Directly back to Dada Because he'll just throw it again And spoil all your fun
So remember, friendlies: You’ve not only got to know when to slow ’em, you also need to know when to roll ’em! And this is Lulu, rolling over and out!
