I firmly believe that car manufacturers were clearly fathers and mothers. Have you ever carefully looked at the back seat of a car? There are clearly defined borders for each seat. I remember so often sitting in the back with my brother and sister and carefully watching to make sure they didn't cross "the line." Unfortunately, the chair that Lucy and Blue try to share has no division. And so we have issues where they are each trying to push the other out of the chair.
If we give them both a piece of ice. Lucy doesn't care that she has her own piece, she only wants Blue's. Do you remember when we were told to share a piece of something...anything? Our Dad would have to use precise cutting skills to cut it exactly in half...or thirds...or fourths...depending on how many of us there were at the time. And even though he did everything possible to make them even we strongly suspected that the other sibling had a bigger piece.
It is pretty crazy to witness it in the animal world as well. And in looking at the pictures, don't worry, I broke it up pretty quickly. The crazy thing is, they roughhouse like this all the time. Blue wants it as much as Lucy does.
|It starts like this. Notice that Blue is not only sitting on THE chair, but Lucy's toy is also in that chair.|
|Then Lucy jump on the chair and starts to try to squeeze Blue out. Yes, the toy is missing because it is impossible to get it all in "one take."|
|This is blurry....no way around it.... but suffice it to say, Lucy kept nudging until Blue attacked.|
|And all out war is declared....all because of the fact that they both wanted to sit in the chair.|
|And for those of you worried that they didn't survive. Peace was eventually restored.|
