And It Only Gets Better-read previous post first!
Okay, I hit the "publish" button too soon. So, to continue the story of my fabulous morning, after I toweled off my four-legged friends I had the tub to deal with. I scoured scrubbed and disinfected with bleach, only to have the drain back up. Drain-o, wait then scrub some more, so that I can shower. My morning shower is the highlight of my day. It refreshes my mind as well as my body. It is steamy and warm and all mine.( After bearing children for eight years and having no privacy for long after that, I still cherish that little time of relative aloneness in my morning.) I grab what I think is conditioner after rinsing shampoo out of my hair and pour it into my hair. To my surprise it lathers up. Squinting, I examine the bottle (don't wear my bifocals in the shower) more closely. Dog shampoo. I don't have fleas, and now I have a fresh citrus scent. As I get out of the shower I trip on Oscar--he is waiting for me. He had one of Wall-E's white hairs in his eye. I pluck it out and he decides to lick my leg dry as a reward. All I can think about is the worms and wonder if they can be transferred to me by his tongue on my leg.......... maybe a tape worm to eat up all my fat? Just kidding, just kidding.......although....... I am off to the store to purchase the worming medication.
