Day 27: The Slinky

Continuing my search for the answers to life's riddles, and my quest to understand the perspective of inanimate objects, I moved today to nature's biggest mystery. The thing that has baffled me, frightened me, and inspired me my whole life; the Slinky.


The humans own quite a few of these strange objects. Today, I experimented with a certain pink plastic example. (I thought it safest to start out with a plastic one, rather than those sharp metal ones that you can get your tail tangled in)


I have realized that in many ways, Slinkies are quite a lot like humans. On one paw, they're more or less useless; on another paw the reason for their existence is a mystery to me; on yet another paw, it's quite amusing to watch them tumble down the stairs.*


This mysterious object will take more investigation...



*note: I do NOT wish my humans to tumble down the stairs. Neither do I laugh when they do so... it's just the expression on their faces that makes it all worth it...
