Melly has recently discovered that she can get a great view of the kitchen counter from on top of the kitchen garbage can.
She was very good about just looking, until...
That shriveled brown thing on the counter is a cured sausage made by Geoff (you can read more about his sausage-making adventures here). It's very tasty stuff, and I'm sure it smelled quite scrumptious to Melly.
It was at about this point that Geoff, who was sitting behind me, looked up, saw what Melly was doing, and yelled for her to get down. Of course, Melly was completely unfazed, whereas I jumped about three feet in the air.
Note: there used to be a Squirt Bottle o' Discipline, but it cracked. I have not yet replaced it, so Melly has been running amok.
