Jack and I went to Aldi the other day, and plumb forgot to bring our own shopping bags with us. Not wanting to spend money buying bags that we already had in the car (which was parked 5 minutes away in another carpark), I spied a pile of cardboard boxes the Aldi crew had left for customers to help themselves to. It’s amazing how well one soon learns to pack things tightly into a small space!
On the way back home, we joked about making a little cardboard house out of the 2 boxes, for the cat, Boo.
Back home, the disparity in dimensions between the 2 boxes meant it wasn’t possible to stack them together to make a reasonable looking “house” for the cat. So, we just left the boxes on the living room floor, side by side.
Which box would Boo select? Would it be Box No.1, the smaller orange one, or Box No.2, the slightly larger and squarer box?
