Today's social dilemma came about over the weekend when I had a couple of friends over to hang out. I did something that they thought was gross and I thought I would ask you about it to see if you agree or disagree. Whenever I eat ice cream, which isn't nearly enough, my cat Jackson will jump up on my lap and pretty much beg for a lick of the ice cream. He has taught his little brother Sammy to do the same. Now, as I get close to the end, I give them some ice cream, right off the spoon. And yes, then I take some of the ice cream off the same spoon. I don't think much of it, but my friends were grossed out by it. Not so grossed out that they were going to leave. We were laughing about it, but they said they would NEVER do that. Now neither one of them have pets so I figured that's where it came from. But I checked with some other friends that do have pets and some will do it, and some are absolutely against it. I never thought it was weird. I mean dogs lick our faces all the time. In my opinion, it's basically the same thing. So Jackson and Sammy get their ice cream and everyone is happy. I don't do it with Leo but that's basically because he doesn't have very good manners and would eat the whole spoon if I ever let him try it, so it's Jackson and Sammy only who get a lick of the ice cream or whipped cream from time to time. So my question is, do you think that's gross and disgusting, or do you think it's just fine. Would that gross you out if you saw me do it or would you be cool with it. I'd love to know what you think. Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
