Have you ever stepped on a dry chewy strip bare foot?
Whether it’s a dry chicken strip, pig ear or rawhide strip, all can be equally porcupine-ish at 2:00 AM whilst you blindly find your way into the bathroom. If in fact, you step on the chewy strip on a hard wood floor, not only do you get the bottom of your foot punctured like a sippy juice box, but you slide across the floor as you swear and do the “Ouch-Ouch” dance, potentially knocking yourself unconscious as you grab for the door frame that you thought was THERE, but it mysteriously moved 5 inches to the left as you realize, “Code Red, I am falling like a giant sequoia and my new dental work is headed for tile.” Holy heck in a handbasket mamasita, no good can come of this.
As you stumble to regain balance your head is now directly aimed at the bathtub, which you really can’t see, but you know is there. You twist in the air like Nadia Comaneci scoring a perfect 10 in the Olympics as you realize the ________ (insert cat or dog, singular or plural). Is now up and about and OH MY GOSH brushing against your leg and you don’t want to smush the critter so you stick your hand out to grab the edge of the sink to regain your balance.
But now you have to flick on the light to see the bottom of your foot indented with the reverse dental imprint of your__________(insert cat or dog, singular or plural.) All that, and you still have to pee. And you really shouldn’t have waited that extra 5 minutes thinking you were going to fall back to sleep because you didn’t have to go THAT bad.
Well, we are guessing this is the scenario of 10-15% of the households that didn’t find the last chewy before they went to bed. Our extensive research lead us to find a similar situation recently blogged by a woman (The Bloggess) whose situation ended with a trip to the hospital with a middle finger injury. As her dog brushed her leg, she did not execute the Nadia Comanici twist therefore resulting in a face first fall. You may recall she was featured as a “Cat Person” on our blog because her cat sits on her head, when wrapped in a towel after showering.
We feel badly about what happened to her and quite frankly, we think her dog, an adorable pug named Barnaby Jones, read this blog labeling his Mom as a cat person and started to plan his revenge. We will never know now, will we?Connect with Us on Social Media:
