The Mess is Jan's Fault
Micah: I am thankful this is not the weather this week.
Merci: I am too. It sure is an unusual winter.
Buddy: Yes, a snowstorm and an ice storm? Very unusual. At least in my lifetime.
Cameron: It has actually been nice this week. Jan has had the back door open for some fresh air.
Sam: Everything in the house is an inch deep in mud. It's all Marcus' fault.
Cyndi: It is not all Marcus' fault, Sam. All of you dogs tracked in mud.
Rusty: And cat litter. Don't forget all the cat litter they tracked inside.
Marcus: How did we track in cat litter from your litter pans?
Percy: Not from our litter pans. The litter Jan coated the icy steps with. It got wet and was crushed and made a mess in the house.
Micah: Actually, the mess is Jan's fault, so don't worry about it.
Merci: How is the mess Jan's fault?
Micah: Well, if Jan hadn't thrown the cat litter around, none of you would have stepped in it and there wouldn't be a mess.
Buddy: Oh, right. But how is the mud Jan's fault?
Micah: If Jan put you dogs on a leash and took you out the front door, you wouldn't be tracking mud in the back door. Right?
Sam: Aha, so it is all Jan's fault! And here she's been blaming us for the mess.
Merci: I, for one, am thankful you pointed this out to us, Micah. Jan, I'm not so sure will be happy about it.
