If you don’t
then what is
to life for?
Do you want to know what I have to do to get ready to take my dog outside to do her thing? Of course you do.
Ridiculously large coat, buttoned up, tied, and really big hood up over my head? Check.
Long, fuzzy, warm socks? (I have an aversion to wearing socks. Mind you, not socks, but wearing socks.) Check.
Big, fuzzy Bearpaw boots? Check.
Big, warm scarf? Check.
Hair placed strategically around my face to keep my face as warm as possible? Check.
Phone to use as a flashlight and also to warn possible kidnappers that I can dial 911 in 2 seconds? (When I’m alone, I always have an emergency plan of action. Always.) Check.
Dog coat for Coco (my dog)? Check.
Plastic bags for the possibility of the unfortunate event my dog needs to do that kind of business? Check.
Keys to lock the door to make sure nobody tries to intrude into our home in the 5-10 minutes I’m out and to unlock the door when I need to come back in? Check.
About 5-10 minutes later…
(…and I’m ridiculous. But hey, this girl is used to warm, desert, and dry. Cold weather and I… let’s just say we don’t sit next to each other at the dinner table. Or look. Or talk. Or anything else. That might explain why when I go to school, I’m the only one who looks freezing cold despite the fact that I’m also the only one wearing huge coats, scarves, etc.)
