Lulu’s Life Tips: What You’re Looking For Isn’t Always In The Obvious Spot

Hello friendlies! Lulu here, with a new life tip! This time it’s about how to find that special thing you’re looking for. You know, something you really want when you know it’s around here somewhere but you aren’t sure where it is. You know? That thing?

Charlee: “Mama’s phone?”
Lulu: “Good guess, but no.”
Chaplin: “Mama’s slippers?”
Lulu: “No.”
Charlee: “Mama’s glasses?”
Lulu: “No.”
Chaplin: “Mama’s book?”
Lulu: “How about you just let me get on with my life tip already?”

Those were all good guesses, but obviously what I’m actually referring to is … A gopher!

Now you’ll notice in the video that, although there is an obvious spot where I could be digging, I am, in fact, choosing to dig in a different spot. That’s because I know the gopher is not in the obvious spot. It’s too easy. It’s clearly a decoy. Plus it’s a lot more fun to dig in a spot that somebody else didn’t dig in already. (Unless of course you’re making a bed; but that will be another life tip later on.)

Chaplin: “All that digging seems like expending an awful lot of energy trying to catcha gopher that you never even see.”
Lulu: “I don’t have to see it to know it’s there. I can smell it through the ground and hear its little feet when it moves through its tunnel.”
Charlee: “Okay, but you might be better off just lying in wait for the gopher to poke its head out. That’s what I do when there are mice in the house. I sit motionless and wait for them to come to me.”
Lulu: “How is that different from all the other times you sit motionless for hours on end?”
Charlee: “Because I’m hunting. Other times I sit motionless I might be thinking, or resting, or waiting for a tummy rub, or plotting world domination … You know how it is.”

So remember, friendlies! If there’s something you want, leave no stone unturned looking for it. And I mean that literally. Until next time, this is Lulu, rolling over and out!

  1. Hmmm, are you sure this tip isn’t going to lead to a lot of holes in your yard? We hear those gophers move pretty fast. Hey, wait, that could still be a lot of fun:)
