    Rat is like a modern Diogenes. Minus the need for empathy.

    What if Zebra had not called?! Poor, patient Pig would have been at the mercy of marauders in the park, who would likely have stumbled on him!

    I wonder if hide and seek was invented by an apathetic baby sitter.

    Reminds me of a joke I heard the other day:

    What do you call a blonde skeleton in a closet?

    The 1983 winner of the National Hide and Seek Competition.

    A week is a long time; good thing Pig was already squatting in a bush.

    To be fair to Rat, after he said that he seemed to realize he hadn’t actually FINISHED playing yet.

    Some psychiatrists opine that ‘hide and seek’ played as a kid is a main reason that adult soldiers get shot in the head…the game teaches you to ‘expose’ yourself…because the only payoff in the game is when you get caught.

    Pig would be considered ‘sane’ in this game. YOU NEVER COME OUT. PERIOD.Yes, I read weirder stuff that Pastis.I once hid for three and a half days.MIlitary game. 82nd Airborne wanted to catch my SF a$$ and mess with me for a day or two.

    I could lay quietly for almost a week in ambush. Pig. though, seems to be pretty good.
