You know that saying about puppies where they say that the only people who like puppies are people who are not currently living WITH a puppy? Oh, you don't? Well I just made that up. It's totally true. Ask anyone living with a puppy. Like me.
I'm one of those people who never carries cash on me, but I found $5 in the laundry this weekend and was quite ecstatic. I told myself I'd take the boys out for ice cream at this cash-only ice cream shop on Wednesday after school and I've been babying this $5 bill like a kid with their first allowance. Wednesdays are early release days from school and I've always wanted to do a little something special with them. So this $5 was the ticket.
You know where this is going, don't you?
I was doing dishes and I saw the puppy chewing on something. I noticed it was something papery, so figured she'd got her gazillionth Kleenex and left her alone while I kept scrubbing dishes.
But then I saw a glint of something green…
Oh you little…what is it they call female dogs again?
Those eyes let me know SHE knows she's in trouble.
Well, we have half a $5 bill. I wonder what we can get at the ice cream shop for $2.50?
