First Funny Story From Our Hurricane Adventure

When we got to my son's house here in Alvin after driving 14 hours from my brother's house in Arkansas, we kind of lost track of what my sister Bonnie's cocker spaniel was up to. After we got the cars unpacked, Bonnie shouted from the living room, "Cory! Come quick, I think Baxter has a mouse in his mouth!"

At this point, all of the women freaked out and took two steps backward while Cory went in for the extraction. Jamie quietly said, "I won't be able to sleep here again, ever."

As Cory got closer to Baxter, he grabbed from Baxter's mouth what Bonnie thought was a tail and pulled out...a tampon.

I was indulging in some chocolate when I read this. It came off the screen pretty good, but I don't know how I'm going to get the chocolate from between the keys of my keyboard. Remind not to eat while I'm reading your blog.

That is flippin' hilarious. :)

Even the dog victims from the hurricanes are looting! Personally if I was a dog, I would have gone for something a little bit more expensive like a diamond studded collar and leash set.

Thanks for the "laughing out loud"! Glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that! Funny as Hell!

OMG!!! I just read that and I laughed so hard I almost pissed my pants!! I had a dog that did the same thing (I had two female roomates) but she would spread them all around the house.

Old Roses - Mmmmmm, chocolate. Leave some on the keyboard for later.

Jen - It was a classic momemt.

Ed - Our dogs are too stupid for that. A nice tampon was good enough for them.

D.B.C. - Yeah, I hear chocolate isn't good to eat while visiting here either.

Stephen - The key words there are "used to" right?

Stephen said...

Yes...the key words are "used to!"
