Task 1: If you have kids or pets, tell us about something “bad” they did that was so funny you couldn’t help but forgive (“pardon”) them. If you have neither kids nor pets, was there such an event in your own childhood – or with kids or pets in your family or circle of friends?
Several years back, we came home to find that my dog, Brutus, and my cats, Princess and Missy (all of whom are no longer with us) worked together to shred several rolls of toilet paper from one end of my house to the other. The cats would knock it to the floor and the three of them had fun playing with it. They were caught in the act, so we know how it happened. It was a bear to clean up, but no one got mad, because it was so funny.
