I accidentally dumped a whole box of dry spaghetti on the floor, and before I could even pick up a fraction of it, the five-second rule had kicked in. So I swept up the pound or so of spaghetti and just tossed it out on the hill behind the Lair where I typically put the deer corn. Frankly I was curious to see what would happen, and sure enough, when five of my most regular deer came down a short time later, one of the does just munched it all up.
And before Liz or some other animal expert reads this and blows a gasket...I know that I shouldn't give the deer spaghetti. But at least it was the healthy whole wheat spaghetti--uncooked--and without sauce or parmesan cheese.
"Please sir...can I have some more?"
