Guy to gal in cafe:
So you like hanging out with me but you don’t like me.
The story of the stalking gardener will go up there with the three marriage proposals - Two marriage proposals were from serious, though unsuccessful, contenders. The third occurred on a first date. May I say also last date.
Have you watched – actually taken notice of – the family dynamics in The Flintsones and The Jetsons? These cartoons show the nuclear family in all its 1960’s glory with full gender role differentiation – the husband goes to work, sleeps, eats, yells (“Wilma!”) while the wife does the shopping, the housework, the child rearing, has a lovely meal on the table for their husband when they get home, and forgives the husband for their mis-derring dos. Sort of… remember the twin single beds in the Flintstones’ bedroom?
Why does the dog follow me into the toilet and sit to the left of me … as if he were sitting by the seat of the throne?
I wonder if kangaroo tastes like mouse?
My calculation of the ‘early’, ‘mid’ and ‘late’ age decade is straightforward. I will be in my early 40s right up to about a week before my 45th birthday, then in my mid 40s til I reach 49.
"My great-aunt Juliet was knocked over and killed by a bus when she was 85. The bus was travelling very slowly in the right direction and could hardly have been missed by anyone except Aunt Juliet, who must have been travelling fairly fast in the wrong direction."
Where has the year gone? I can’t remember Easter. Did we have it already?
Is there a law against double posting like there is double dipping?
Ziggy not well … at the vet …
I took Ziggy to the vet this morning as he was not his normal self. He didn’t want to play fetch for a start. Anyone who has suffered through his insistence to play – usually by dropping the ball at your foot over and over again while making an ear piercing whining noise – will know this is indeed serious.
All he wanted to do was curl up and sleep. He was also off his food, and most scary, he was vomiting yellow foam. I did an internet search and this meant he was vomiting bile.
So off to the vet we go. Lucky the vet staff know Zigs well from his happy visits to doggy daycare, and could see the vast change in his presentation. Given Ziggy wasn’t forthcoming with any answers, particularly after the vet brought out the thermometer, I had to leave Zigs awaiting blood test results, while I went off to work to earn the money to pay the vet bill.
I managed to limit my phone calls to the vet during the day to only two. Not because I didn’t want to …
So what is ailing Ziggy? Pancreatitis. Yep, that horrible painful and possibly life threatening condition.
He is hooked up to the IV for fluids. He is not allowed food or water, then will be slowly introduced back to food (sounds like that will be a test). Then a low fat diet possibly forever. Scary, since he really had quite a healthy diet, is far from overweight and, as noted, loves his physical exercise.
I am so looking forward to Ziggy coming home again, annoying me incessantly to play fetch.
