Animals and babies

Since my generation didn't grow up with Facebook, it's easy to see how the social media outlet has changed things. Some things have come up that I didn't for see, like people who always post about the same thing, or people who post pictures of themselves in the bathroom mirror taken with their camera phone (the guys are always topless). Other things are completely predictable like when my friends have kids and all of a sudden they start posting a million pictures of baby feet, funny faces and the child's milestones. We can tease them, until we have kids and do the same thing. Some of my friends though, they had animals.

There's no other way to describe it. Perhaps they weren't ready to have kids yet, and later in life they will, but these people do all the same things as the people with kids, only about their pets. The nursery is a dog bed, there's pictures of family holding it, and my personal favourite, updates about bowel movements. "Whiskers isn't feeling well today, better make the hubby change the litter box today..." Next time you're scrolling through your news feed, you'll notice your friends who had animals, I'm sure everyone have got at least one on their friend list.

New phrase

It has happened to everyone, when you're thinking about what you're going to say, and two options come to mind. When you speak, instead of picking one, you utter a weird/unheard of combination of the two. The possibility of this happening increases when you're telling a story or talking about something you're excited about. This experience happened to me. I was thinking of the phrases "jack shit" and "shit all" and it came out "jack shit all". I know what you're thinking, use that in a sentence right?

In this photo, I appear as if I'm up to no good, but in reality I was doing jack shit all sitting in my car in the Costco parking lot this morning.

Poo whacked

There I was, walking the dog with dad so he wasn't lonely, when dad picked up the dogs poop, and put it in a bag. As his hand was swinging naturally when he walked, he almost hit me with the poop. "whoa, dad..careful there, you almost whacked me with your poop!" and then he did it. Purposefully, he hit with the bag of poop. I was stunned. Ew! It was warm too! He couldn't stop laughing..oh dad.

Over Easter, I worked at a store that sold chocolates, and as you can imagine, it was super busy. Not only that, but everyone was going crazy about buying their Easter candies, especially the peanut butter customers. They are a whole new breed of crazy, and you do not want to get between them and their peanut butter, trust me. That is a bad place to be.
Anyhow, the week leading up to Easter, we had crazy line ups. The upside to this is shifts went by super quickly. When I'd occasionally check the time, I was usually surprised. One such day when I was due to be off at 3pm, I checked the clock after helping a customer to see it was 2:59. Without even thinking about it, I helped the next customer in line, which took my until 3:04. I couldn't help but think of all the times I'd been helped past when people were supposed to be off, and how helping that one extra person gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Now you have it too, quick - pass it on!

Dog + vacuum

When we had our last dog, I remember thinking "how much help is he going to be as a guard dog if he's scared of a vacuum cleaner?" but for all you dog owners out there who are thinking the same thing, consider yourself lucky. The alternative is a whole lot worse, let me tell you. When I dig the vacuum out, Indy gets super excited because for him, it's play time! He has the most fun running after the vacuum, chasing it with his tail wagging. He always likes to stand exactly where I need to go next. It drives myself, and whomever else tries to get the task done, absolutely bonkers.
I can't say I haven't considered taking the cord off and sucking him up a couple times just to see if it freaks him out enough to leave me alone. But don't worry, I haven't. Yet.
