Son came back home after spending a few days away. He had about four bags and struggled taking them upstairs - which meant he left the stair gate open behind him. Well Bess saw her chance and tore upstairs. Son yells down for me to do something. Bess isn't allowed upstairs, so she's manic if she gets up there. When I want to give her a bath I nonchalantly leave the stair gate open, and she's got wise to that fact. So I stood at the bottom of the stairs and called out 'Want a bath?' Well! Bess came hurtling down the stairs so fast she almost knocked me over. She then ran through the kitchen and straight out into the garden. I take it the answer was 'no'.
