I probably wrote out 10 things last night. I really – seriously – probably – tried to post it. I honestly thought that it went out onto the tubes. But it didn’t.
I don’t even have a copy of my list . . .Â
So here is my shot at trying to re-make my list.
- I’ve been seeing either a lot of skunks lately – or – one skunk a whole lot.
- I woke up on Tuesday with a band-aid on my arm and couldn’t remember where it came from.
- There was an elephant nabbing in my house this week.
- Don’t let your dogs eat leaves. It doesn’t end well.
- Legal papers give headaches.
- I found the band-aid on my arm again. It was Thursday.Â
- The world snowed on me. I didn’t like it.
(hey . . . 8 out of 10 isn’t all that bad – right?!)
Stuff the first:
â€¢ I’ve been doing a lot of sneezing lately. But not the kind of sneezing that most humans are used to. I am talking crazy ten in a row seeing spots in front of my eyes – when will this end – types of sneezing. To make it stop – I gargle with Listerine (mostly because it kind of hurts – and I want my sneezing mechanisms to feel the pain that they are putting me through) and then I snort water up my nose (which I only recommend if you are interested in partially drowning yourself). The sneezing then tends to stop. Until it all starts over again.
Stuff the second:
â€¢ Today – while coming back from a walk – Socks was caught scooting along behind me. When I turned around to see what he was doing – he actually looked ashamed – turned his eyes away and hopped up to start walking again. I had to explain to him that I would much rather that he drag his tiny dog butt outside on the grass than on my pillow. That would be a fireable offense.
Stuff the third:
â€¢ There is a house down the street with a monster of a dog. It freaks out everytime we walk down the road. The owner-lady was out in the yard today and she used the old “He’s really big – but believe me – he’s a sweetheart.” and then she threw in the old standby of “His bark is much worse than he is.” Okay – so she mixed the old standby up a smidge – who among us hasn’t?!
Anyway – it got me thinking – do all animal owners think that their puppies are inherently as sweet as pie? Would they think that way if they owned a badger – or a King Cobra – or a Puma – or whatever? “Oh look at how adorable my pet Hyena Freckles is . . . he just gutted your dog . . . Oh – but it’s okay – they are just playing around!”
Welcome back – to there . . . that spot in front of your computer where you go to to look at stuff – including (I am guessing) this stuff.
It has been a busy time around the shop – what with all kinds of holidays coming and going (How were yours? Mine were super-swell) and all kinds of other shenanigans popping up all around (Had to convince Socks that getting his tongue pierced was not any kind of a good idea – at all). And in between – and sometimes during the hoot-e-nanny, we also worked on some nifty stuff for you to see (If you go to the main page of the website – www.nattybumpercar.com – you may notice some new stuff – maybe).
Anyway – it is great to have you back!
We promise to attempt to try to make it great in 2008 – or some such jibberish as that.
