Have you ever eaten dog food?

I have.  Of course it was by accident!  Still trying to “be good” and let my body heal as it should.  That takes time.  So even though I am much better (my hip surgery-new joint), it has only been three weeks and I have some healing to do.

This morning I got up and did a few things and then got back in bed with a paper towel holding a couple of handful of Cherrios, and one holding a bit of dry dog food.

The next thing I knew both towels flew out of my hand and there was a mix of both on the bed, on the floor, in my hand, and surprisingly on the blanket where the dog lay.

Those did not last long.

Since I cannot really bend down yet, I took the now invaluable “grabber” and started to pick the little things up one by one, separating them into (once again) two paper towels.

Did not take long so I climbed into bed to sit and do a bit of studying, and I poured out the goodies for the dog (who was on her blanket on the bed too).  Then I popped some Cherrios into my mouth and began to chew.  Do my dismay, I realized I should have put my glasses on before doing so.

Uh-huh – dog food mixed in!  Yuk.  I am glad I am not a dog.  It made me begin to gag and I thought I was going to need a bucket.  I made my way to the bathroom, did some spitting into the toilet, and quickly brushed my teeth.

Now I have seen some showoff guys do this for fun (after a few drinks), but my palate must be really selective.  It was disgusting.

Though I admit, not half as disgusting as the Preparation H I once brushed my teeth with (no glasses of course).

Did I get mad?  Not on your life.  I started laughing after I quit gagging.  There is so much to be miserable about today, and I will endeavor to be joyous, even if it means, “laughing WITH myself!”  By the way, I shared my yogert with the poor dog!

Haven’t told my husband yet, as he will be tired tonight and I thought I would share it after his shower so he can have a good laugh too.

Find the humor in life and you will find the joy!  God bless you all!

    Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the
    net the easiest thing to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get
    annoyed at the same time as other folks consider
    concerns that they plainly don’t realize about. You managed to hit the
    nail upon the highest and also defined out the entire thing without having side-effects ,
    other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
    Thank you

      you are too kind! my new hip is perfect! My burst compression fracture and two following surgeries, not so much! Healing nerve roots is the slowest healing in the body. Then two days ago, my left ankle gave way (it’s partially paralyzed ) and I landed on my left wrist. Knew it was broken! I am left-handed! oh drat – back to the drawing board! thank you again for reading and writing! i love it. I am hunting, and pecking for now-but you made me find a smile!
