Yesterday I was at my local Kroger buying a large bag of Purina Dog Chow for my loyal pet, Emma, the Wonder Dog, and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think...I had an elephant? So because I'm kind of weird on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stopped to pee on a fire hydrant and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Kroger won't let me shop there anymore. Disclaimer...it didn't really happen to me...but it could have! Rachel of momentscapturedbyrachel.com is coming today to photograph the boys. Now that Raven is gone we must have a new business card to hand out. Rachel took the pictures and designed the last card, which we loved. Hope the boys will be full of energy this morning and will show off a bit. They aren't as photogenic as Raven was. Man we miss that stallion.
