I was a real dummy yesterday. When I woke up and looked out the kitchen window at 7 a.m., a man was walking a beautiful black and white pit bull past the house. However, he was having quite a difficult time, because my neighbor’s young shepherd had broken loose and was dancing around him and his dog. It was an unfolding nightmare, and I reacted instead of thinking my actions through. I started waving my arms about, bending this way and that, trying to catch the loose dog, who evaded me handily. Or “pawdily”, since dogs don’t have hands. 🙂
Anyhoo, I realized after the first five swipes at the dog that I was making a HUGE mistake, ’cause my neck started even then to feel like a rat that had been in the jaws of a rat terrier! So, you can imagine what it feels like now. In fact, I must end this abruptly, my pain level is hovering somewhere around “I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!
Goodnight…said the swan.
