Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

How Come...

How come Riley Dog turns tail and runs whenever he walks in on me when I'm about to get in the shower? Does he think I have removed my fur? Does he want to leave the room before he gags? Is he laughing?
~~~~~
How come the baggage claim area in RDU Airport smells like somebody peed in every potted plant in the room? Wouldn't it show up on one of the video cameras if someone relieved himself that often in the potted plants? Am I the only person who smells it?
~~~~~
How come I always thought Riley Dog was a yellow dog until I forced him to suffer through a long soapy bath (I let him keep his fur on) and he dried off red?
~~~~~
Just wondering...

Maybe it really isn'y you Riley dog is running from when you are about to shower. Perhaps he thought his hair was yellow too and just doesn;t want another bath. Maybe it isn't pee in the plants? I always wonder what goes on behind the little conveyer belt in the back where the luggage gets loaded. I know...warped AND gross.

Why am I single? Why do all my plants die? Why did I faceplant in my driveway yesterday?

Yes, we'll never know...

I expect Riley Dog is running from the shower, not you. ;)

Our dog follows me everywhere. Once I turn on the shower or bath faucet he high tails it out of there. He thinks he is going to get a bath. Must be a dog thing.

Sharon said...

Hmmm, is a puzzlement!

Pixie said...

ah, the mysteries of life. Why do I have to sacrifice at least on tray of cookies to the oven gods everyt time I bake? Why does the cat wait util I sit down and settle in to want out? Why does my daughter call every day at 2.30 when I am at my busiest?

Been missing you and wondering how things are going. Take care and don't be a stranger!

Funny Sky lays in front of the shower when Jason is in there, but with me lays across from the shower..."watching". Kinda unnerving!

HOW COME YOU HAD TO GET THAT STUPID JOB SO WE NEVER HEAR FROM YOU ANYMORE, HUH? Oh for pete's sake, go rob a bank or something, pay off your bills and then sit back down at the computer where you belong!!! I miss you sooooo much, sweetie!

LOL! Deep Thoughts indeed!

I think there is a pee plant out there...the parking lot at the Trader Joes in our town always smells like pee to me. I have explained it to other people and they are like "oh really? I never noticed" so maybe you and I and a few select others have the honor of smelling it for what it is..plantivus urinus. I just try to move through the lot as fast as possible, I've never tried to see what plant is causing the smell. Blarg. My cat AD turns tail & runs when I brush my teeth. I think its the sink running but she hates it! Pets & people are delightfully weird!

Peepee plants...... gross!!!

Stacey said...

You are way too funny! I laughed out loud with each little question:)
On a side note, was wondering if you had the date of when you'd be up here in Oct. We're planning vacation and I don't want to be out of town when you visit. I'm really looking forward to you seeing the shop. (And I can't wait to see what Christmas goodies you have!!)...

Lisa said...

Lulu never seems to notice that I am taking off my fur! She actually sits at the shower door and waits for me to come out!

dobco said...

Dogs are indeed strange creatures. Mine likes to come check on me when I am in the bathroom??? Good to see you.

oh, I love this game. um, let me see.

How come my husband will pick bits of lint and other whatnot and throw it into a POTTED PLANT instead of walking another 5 feet and throwing it into the trash?

How come boxwoods smell like cat pee?

just wondering.....
