Yesterday, as I walked into the kitchen, I noticed that the water in the dog's bucket needed to be changed. Rigger has a major drool problem, and the water in their bucket gets slimy and gross fairly quickly.
I made a mental note to clean it out as soon as I was done with the list of chores I was currently working on.
A little while later, I walked by it again and noticed it was full of clean, fresh water.
"Ben," I asked cautiously, "Did....you.... change the water in the dog's bucket?"
"Yes, ma'am," Ben replied without looking up from the computer.
"You....you...saw something that needed to be done....and you did it....without me telling you too??"
There's light at the end of the tunnel.
