The Lesser of Two Evils

Just back here for a minute or two. If you read Kat's Theory of Music you already know where I've been lately. If you haven't heard the news, click on this post Twisted MixTape: End of Decades and a Story to Tell for the update.

I've mentioned before that I really don't like to start the day with the first word out of my mouth being," FUCK." I especially don't like it to start a Monday. But then, we can't always get what we want.

Don't let that face fool you
3:25am I woke up with the familiar feeling of having a slightly full bladder. Do I want to get up or can I turn over and just fall back to sleep? Take a wild guess. After about twenty minutes of trying to ignore Mother Nature, I got up. This house we live in, which I thought would be a temporary move a long time ago, has only one bathroom. Downstairs. This is why if there's a possibility of falling back to sleep, I take it every time.

As I am on my way, I remember the Perseid meteor showers, realize I don't have my glasses on anyway, and with rain coming today it would probably be too overcast. Whatever. Two steps away from the bathroom, I feel something foreign and squishy under both of my heels. You know it's not gonna be a good day when you start the day hoping you've just stepped into dog vomit and not dog shit.

I walk the rest of the way on my toes, wash middle-of-the-night dog puke off my feet and start the clean-up process. Of course falling back to sleep was not in the cards, so if I'm not all sunshine and flowers today, now you know why.

Probably won't be happy tomorrow either.
Is it Friday yet?

  3. Dude! I so can relate to that! Especially when I had cats! I can't remember how many times I stepped in fresh hair balls, puke. just gross!
    Now with little Yoshimi (aka Daisy) having trouble going out when there is rain within 100 mile radius, I have had the pleasure of stepping in pee more times than I would like.
    Why do we do it? WHY?
    Oh, but they are so darn cute, aren't they? My son got hurt today and Yoshimi was in his lap licking his face... what more could you want?

    1. We do it because they do so much more for us. Although I sense she thinks she is my superior because she gives me that look when I am cleaning up her crap off the street.
