Thumper is obsessed with apples.


Seriously, if an apple a day really did keep the doctor away, he’d be the world’s healthiest child.  He would easily eat two or three a day if I’d let him.  I made the mistake of buying a dozen apples in a plastic clamshell from Costco, and then left them out.  He picked up the entire thing and brought it to me, staggering under its weight, and asking “Apple?”

Well, I’ve been trying to straighten out a massive insurance headache over the last few days, and during one of my many phone calls, Thumper brought me an apple he’d gotten off the counter.  I took it from him and shooed him away, saying he could have it later.

About 5 minutes later, I heard crunching.  He’d taken a different apple and started eating it.  I made a mental note to look for the remains around the house later.

Rerun found it at the end of the hallway, and this was all that was left.


He’d eaten the whole thing right off the core, and done a pretty clean job of it, too!

Now, if I could just get him to throw his garbage away in the right spot…
