PUPPINGTON — Some of us are morning people, pleased to greet the day, and some of us will crush others with our absolute distaste for waking up.
But one man has surely found the cure for morning grumps — and perhaps the key to world peace — in the form of a pack of pug puppies.
He achieves the type of bliss needed for banishment of the grumps and the fulfillment of world peace in four simple steps:
1. Enter a room with four or more puppies. In this case he utilized six puppies of the pug variety, but breed isn’t as important as amount of puppies. Warning: Too many puppies may result in accidentally squishing a puppy, which may be accompanied by a pang of guilt.
2. Greet the puppies excitedly to catalyst them into a puppy frenzy of delight.
3. Get down on the floor, continuing happy talk with the puppies as they swarm toward you with vicious tail wags and aggressive face-lickings. Do not be afraid, their happy aggression is normal and needed for desired results.
4. Let the joy wash over you as you laugh and half-heartedly try to curb the puppies from licking your face.
Results may vary, but with practice, you too can become an expert at finding joy and peace with the help of a pack of puppies.
