bitches and jackasses

Boy was I annoyed yesterday.
Bit of a fit, really. A tiff. A tizzy.

I’m sure you know:
There’s temper, then there’s rancor.
There’s cross, then there’s apoplectic.
There’s mad, and there’s damned mad.
There’s also bristling, which you feel
in your hair, especially in the eyelashes.

But if you’re lucky, you have a dog.
Mine had been sick and listless.
She didn’t even want her bone.
But when I got home, she gave me
the full-body wag. I got the slobber
tug-o-war toy pressed into my hand.

I’m sure you’ve been there:
Relieved, then delighted.
Glad, then damned glad.
Home from work, evening before you.

Knowing your mood...

... I'm betting the dog isn't mentioned in the title...

Sarah, you and I need to sit and have a few glasses of cheap wine someday. Somehow, I think we'd have a lot to laugh about!

Arlene said...

teehee, sarah! this sure is a great way to express it. our mutual 80% weird friend, michi sent me a tori amos song called "assholes are cheap today." i'm hearing that in the background. hee.

hugs,
arlene

p.s. bulmdo? maybe short for bulimic dildo?

heh heh.

char, where are you in NM? My dad's in Santa Fe so wine isn't out of the question...

Arlene, as you know, having a dog is a sane-person thing to do, and keeps you slim. smile

sarah - ugh, sounds like one of those days. no, no, i mean, one of THOSE days. capital letters. i think arlene is right - that little tori song might have helped. dogs would never do it for me - i cannot stand them.

while ms arlene who pretends to be only 60% weird - *stagewhisper*: as if anybody would ever believe that! - is wondering about bulimic dildos, all i can say is: xxtnulvi.

hope today was better.

Not far from Sante Fe at all, Sarah - just down the hill in Rio Rancho. I go there, often. This is good!
