As is my normal routine each night, I find myself sitting with Muddear engaged in random conversation. While lying in bed waiting for me to dispense her final round of medication for the night Muddear asks..."why wasn't I served dinner?"

"Muddear, you were served dinner, you just didn't eat most of it."
"No I didn't," she says.
"Muddear, here is your plate. I haven't taken it down to the kitchen yet."
"Well, anyone could have put that plate there for show. A plate doesn't mean I had dinner!"

Why I am I always being accused of subterfuge?
