On Thursday morning, my biological brother, Panda Bear, challenged me to a staring contest. Panda has been in a mood recently, picking fights, mounting Caramel until she squeaks, and chasing me around the house. (Yes, PB has been nootered, and Caramel has been spayed, but PB keeps climbing on top of her and biting her neck. Gross.)
So when Panda Bear challenged me to a staring contest, I said,
Bring it on!
We got started in the living room.
After awhile, Panda Bear started caterwauling at me to try to intimidate me. Even though he weighs about two pounds more than me, I know I can give him the smackdown.
So I kept on staring.
Next Panda Bear added the “paw lift” maneuver. You know the one. PB continued staring and caterwauling at me, and then lifted his right front paw off the floor and waved it around, in a feeble attempt to appear menacing.
I kept right on staring.
Eventually Panda Bear gave in, and turned away to blink.
Some of you may think it was an unfair fight, what with Panda Bear having only one eye and all. But I had to keep TWO eyes open while he only had to keep ONE eye open.
