We have this rule in our household, called The Pigeon Rule, and it goes something like this: if someone has a pigeon on them then they are exempt from doing anything.

For example:

“Honey, can you open the window please?”

“Sorry, got a pigeon on me.”

“Oh, ok. I’ll do it myself then.”

This rule started because Elmo and Georgie would (and still do) fall alseep on our lap and we were (and still are) reluctant to disturb them to get up. So whoever is pigeon free has to do the chore. … The Pigeon Rule has led to some people (no names mentioned… ahemRichardahem) to cheat:

“Honey, can you please do the dishes?”

“Sorry, got a pigeon on me,” as he picks up Elmo and places him on his lap.

“Is that so? … Well, so do I!” Picking up Georgie.

Maybe we need some ground rules established for The Pigeon Rule. :D
