Oh, This Day

It started with rescuing the dogs from the skunk adventure, which was funny and terrible, and then I had a really good lunch meeting, and then I had to explain to someone what a butt plug is, which was just… ugh… embarrassing. And then I finished The Boy Who Drew Monsters which really pissed me off. I can barely abide by movies where the problems people have would be solved if they’d just listen to each other, I cannot abide by a whole book where part of the reason things are dragging out is that no one will listen to their damn kid.

I’m tired and grouchy and also happy. I am a swirl of mixed emotions.

Important Life Lesson

If your dog ever gets sprayed by a skunk–a quart of hydrogen peroxide, a 1/4 of a cup of baking soda, and some really mild soap. Rub your dog with this mixture. Let it sit. Rinse.

The smell is still going to sit in your nostrils all day at work, though.

Or so the Butcher is learning the hard way right about now.
