My wife came back from the pet store carrying a cardboard box full of cat toys and goodies for the new kitty we just brought home from the shelter.
My wife took all of the items out of the box and carefully laid them all out on the floor, eager to see which ones the kitty wanted to play with.
My wife watched with dismay as the kitty looked over and sniffed the lined-up goodies, but passed them all up for the cardboard box, which she jumped into and mockingly peered at us just over the box’s top edge.
