I get to go to Greece for work. What does that mean? Exactly. Work retreat. Go me!
Finally, a break in the clouds and sunshine on my face. Doing the happy dance at work. Moonwalking in my office at my desk. Sprinkler. The Dougie.
I did security for them once. When the song came on, I might have been dancing in the dark corner of the Casper Events Center. Maybe. In uniform. Possibly. No. It was before Snapchat and Instagram. I don't even think videos were a thought on cell phones back then except to capture bad moves by the police.
It beats yesterday...
(missed calls from Bug=8)
Hmm. This looks like crisis hotline dialing. I called her back.
"MOM! I am so mad! You would not believe!"
At this point, I am driving home after my workout and holding the phone about 2 feet away as her teenager screech was killing me.
"What is wrong?"
I am not moved in the least toward her anxiety levels.
"MURPHY MADE ME SO MAD!"
Pretty much bracing myself for another "dog ate your prized possessions" story.
"Well, what happened?"
"I TOOK MURPHY OUTSIDE TO POOP. AND I WALKED HIM AROUND!"
"Could you use your inside voice?"
"I AM USING MY INSIDE VOICE! HE DIDN'T POOP AND THE MINUTE I TOOK HIM INSIDE, HE POOPED AND IT'S STUCK TO HIS BUTT! IT IS SO GROSS!"
"Well, take a paper towel and pull the poop off and throw it away. The good news is it isn't on the floor or carpet."
"NO! NO! I AM NOT TOUCHING THAT. HE IS GOING TO WEAR IT UNTIL YOU ARE HOME! HURRY! FAST! I CAN'T TAKE IT! IT STINKS! HIS BUTT IF FULL OF POO!"
"Stop it. You are being ridiculous."
"I AM SERIOUS! I MIGHT PASS OUT!"
"Well, I wouldn't do that if I were you. Murphy might sit on you with poop on his bum or lick your face."
"OH GROSS! I'M GOING TO LOCK MYSELF IN MY ROOM UNTIL YOU GET HOME!"
"Suit yourself. I might stop at the store. Or get the mail. Or visit. Someone."
"YOU DON'T KNOW ANYONE. YOU ARE STALLING! GET HOME!"
I heard a door slam at the same time she disconnected the call.
And so it was.
All that over a dingleberry.
|Cutest dog ever|
