It's not enough that I embarass myself on a daily basis in front of people.
I have expanded my audience, for now I am a Dork in front of the Animal Kingdom as well.
I have always been an animal lover; but sometimes I don't think they would quite believe it.
Especially if our cats had anything to say on the subject.
"Beware the fluffy slippers. They may look soft and innocent, but they are not. They are Weapons of Mass Destruction. And never park behind her when she's wearing them in the kitchen" they would warn.
"Not if you want to keep your tail intact."
Okay, I WILL admit to stepping on a few tails in my day... but in my defense they DO have a nasty habit of sneaking up on me when I'm making dinner, waiting for food to drop from the sky.
When I'm not tripping over the three felines, our dog feels the pain of my bungling ways too.
She would surely have a story to tell about the other day. The day I forgot she was outside... for a few hours:
"Yup. Here I am her faithful lapdog... an "Inside Dog". And she just LEFT me out there! In the snow! In the cold! I ran around the back yard for hours, chasing bunnies and digging in the snow. But did she remember me? Did she even CARE?"
"Nooooo... She's just lucky it wasn't 40 below. I would have frozen my cute floppy ears off!"
I love them. Really I do.
But I do find I spend an inordinate amount of time apologizing, hugging and heaping treats on the little furballs in hopes of forgiveness for my various shortcomings.
They'll just have to come to sad fact that they have a Dork for an owner, that's all.
