A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words...

     ...Yeah, if you take a picture, you dumbass!  So since somebody didn't take advantage of a great photo op I'll just have to tell you about it.  Won't be the same though.  Anyway-
     There's a single-bay car wash at this complex, and yesterday the smart one watched as a young couple walked their hefty bulldog across the parking lot, his lowrider bulk shuffling along lazily (the dog's, not dad's).  They proceeded to hose off the gentle canine, who sat in place in the middle of the bay, obviously enjoying the mild jet of spray.  
     The young woman then lathered up the spoiled pooch, who looked rather silly covered with foam, saggy jowls and pointy teeth spared the froth.  Rather smart idea, thought the non-thinking (isn't that an oxymoron or something?) simpleton with the awesome camera in his handy, right-at-his-side phone. 
      Rover sat still as a statue as his slaves sprayed the last of the suds from his now-beautified hide.  What a great post this would make thought the brilliant one.  I swear, if his head wasn't attached...

Well...that is kinda unusual. I wonder if he got the clear coat. Ha ha ha ha, I kill me sometimes!

All I can say is thank Cod no people we own would do that to us.

Look in the bright side. If they live around there (likely) they'll be back. Maybe by then your bean will figure things out.

PS: A video would probably make all of you famous, at least for a few minutes.

Who needs a camera when you can create such an awesome word-picture?

Nice to meet you, by the way, and thanks for dropping by to say hello to Dante.
