A Big Day for the Dog
THAT DOG broke a tooth over the weekend (fortunately not one of the fang ones that would leave her chewing lopsided). She's not in any pain, but it could lead to funky bad stuff in her little mouth, so tomorrow morning she'll bound into the car when I ask, "Wanna go for a ride????" and her stubby tail will wag with glee right up to the moment when they knock her out for dental surgery. Having been through a bit of that myself in my younger days, I envy her total lack of worry, her complete certainty that things will turn out fine, and her utter optimism that there might even be a tender morsel or two that falls from the dinner table right under her nose at the end of the day. Of course, she'll likely be too stoned to notice, but hey, at least her glass is more than half full.
(And yes, her front legs are that ridiculously long. Her back legs are slightly longer, even, so when she runs her back skids out to the side like one of those drag racing cars with the fat tires in the back.)
That's really all the news from here right now. Other than that, I'm on the couch with my laptop, editing, editing, editing. February 1st is when my new year begins :)
And finally, if you find yourself in one of those places where you're wondering if your life has purpose, ask yourself, Why not a banana over Texas? and see if you don't feel...well, normal :)
