Beer is a Time machine.
Avoid telling the truth.
After reading the entire article a few times... Pa realises just how close his philosophy in life and Uncle Tan's is. And also just how far he has strayed in that philosophy. It impacted Pa so much I had to read it myself. And I realise just how similar it is to a Rotties life as well.
-We never work. What we do, we do Out of Love. Out of Loyalty. Out of Instinct.
-We never tell the Truth. We love unconditionally. Whatever we see, disagree in, disgusted over... we will always hide it and lick inbetween your toes. That and the fact we can't talk helps.
-We are Hated. By others that have no real reason to do so.
-We are always Loving. And we are always willing to love someone with every fibre of our bodies that we will undoubtedly sacrifice ourselves.
Looks like we are already WAY ahead of the others... and if we were human, we would probably be Lawyers.
