gluttony

there has been a nice weekend pattern at home lately. biking in the mornings. days at the beach. sunday grocery shopping, dinner and a movie at home, and quality time with the pet farm (our dogs and cats).

so, when i suggested the titlefirst #6 'glutton for punishment’ it was truly meant as an effort to revive amy’s fantastic little game. i did *not* intend it to be the theme for the weekend. a ridiculously ‘successful’ friday happy-hour-turned-bar-closer lead to a painfully unproductive saturday, followed by a rather ruckus saturday evening. nonetheless, after softball on sunday i had a hankerin’ for some social interaction, so we headed back to the local watering hole for 'just a couple of drinks'.

it’s like this: every time my dog vomits after eating something she shouldn’t ingest, i’m baffled. you’d think that eventually she’d learn that, despite the fact that her demented little taste buds might like the taste of cat poop, her belly does not and it is going to cause her to wretch.

In defense of the dog, how many times have you gone out and drank too much knowing you would regret it later? ...That's just an example, please don't take offense.

I kind of like that the dogs can and will also make the choice for the pleasure of consumption over the pain of expulsion. So to your dog, "Bon Apetit! to the cat poop"

Sorry. I wasn't reading with my sarcasm eye. I'll do better next time.
