Yoghurt pot has two lids.
Remove both, carefully.
The inner lid is plastic too. If dropped accidentally on the floor, a greed-crazed black labrador could swoop on it, and in a millisecond, swallow it whole.
(Not this particular lid, obviously. Another one, similarly indigestible.)
Slack owner, used to black labradors who eat garbage, fails to worry about this, and then forgets all about it.
In the days that follow, dreadful labrador stomach turmoil is blamed on blackberries and windfall apples that litter the road. But no.....
Guess how long it would take for that plastic yoghurt pot lid to reappear (unscathed)?
A whole week.
I will spare you the details, but it was perfectly recognisable.
Now guess how much of a lesson black labrador learned from this week of dreadful stomach turmoil?
Exactly. Nothing at all. Next yoghurt pot that was opened, there she was, sitting expectantly, hoping for a (ahem) re-run. Slack owner has learned lesson though, and removes and discards plastic lid with extra care....
