I have developed a new habit that is resulting in extra treats, so I will share it.
Step 1: Don't eat all your breakfast when they put it down. Eat no more than a third.
Step 2: stand and stare at your Lady or your Man eating breakfast. Make sure you look really hungry.
Step 3: the power of the sad eyes will kick in and you will get some human food.
Try it and let me know if it works for you!
