Quid pro quo

To score a beach outing, one has to offer a ear clean and take a bath in return. That's the way the world is, no matter the height from which you view it. I detest this inexcusable trait in humans, a trait which they do away with the need to self-examine in greater detail by dismissing as "human nature", "it's only fair" and "there's no free lunch". If this heralds the things to come, i tell you, I don't hold no hope for them humankind.

As I tell you this, they are dragging me away for another ear clean. See, it gets worse. They didn't offer me anything in return! And so, my dear friends, you can see that this is also the way the world works. First, something in return. Then, nothing in return. And once the formalities are over, they do whatever they want. Big guys can do that.

But we doggies don't live by that. The bare minimum, I assure you, is being fair. We don't take without giving in return. You give me something, I'll give you something. They gave me a ear clean, I gave them holes in them hands.

Fairness being achieved, I have to sleep now.

Later.
