Yesterday's trip to the lake with Chi Chi was a success. She thoroughly enjoyed the good grass and the sunshine. Instead of going to a restaurant afterwards, we went to a doggy boutique where attention was lavished on her and treats were purchased.

Chi Chi Sunning

We were the only people there for awhile and I noticed that about a half dozen large birds were circling the downtown area and I wondered what was dead there that they might be looking at. About 20 minutes later, I noticed that the birds had moved and were circling us and I wondered what they had their beady little eyes on. When it occurred to me that they might be eyeballing Chi Chi, we packed up and moved out of there.

I took the Chichister home and then went to Sweety's work to meet him for lunch.

You know, I think everyone is entitled to their opinion but when you are eating in a public place, it would be nice if you didn't talk loudly enough to subject everyone to it. There was a lady sitting behind us that did not shut up the entire time we were there. She was telling her companions all about the email she got that told her how unpatriotic Barack Obama is so it must be true! It was so hard to not turn around and say, "Shut up." She had all kinds of stories to tell because she knew someone "high up in the military".

At one point right after she'd said something stupid loudly and Sweety could see that my head was fixing to pop - Sweety loudly states, "Hey! Do you know what I saw on the news last night? There was this guy, Jack and he had a cow to sell! And on his way to the market - someone gave him magic beans for his cow! Can you believe it? Magic beans!" One of the guys sitting with loud lady looked at Sweety and just died laughing.

Let me tell you something else that I don't like. I don't like a smarmy 13 year old telling me who he feels would and would not be a good president based upon what he heard was on the internet. Kid didn't actually read it on the internet himself but heard it was on the internet. His quote was, "If it's on the internet it must be true!". Sweet, tiny, not old enough to vote yet, baby Jesus. Needless to say, BigBrother(13) and I had quite a conversation. He now knows my stance on abortion and gay marriage and I don't think he was pleased with it. At one point he asked me, "Does Dad know who you want to be president?". I told him yes but that just because you're married doesn't mean you have to have the same political views.

See those shot glasses? They are double shot glasses and I purchased them at the neighbor's tupperware-type party a couple of weeks ago. Aren't they pretty? I learned last night that the way to not drink tequila is with double shot glasses. Before you know it, you and your Sweety will have drank the whole freaking bottle. Oddly enough, I didn't have a hangover today. It had been months since I'd drank any of that and fully expected to feel like hammered shit today. It kind of weirds me out that I didn't. I don't think we will buy anymore tequila.

Yeah that anti-Obama email is circling everywhere lately... I'm fairly certain Hillary's campaign was the one who originally wrote it and started forwarding it.

Chickie said...

bekah - I think you're right. It annoys me that people will take the time to forward crap but won't take a minute to google something to see if it's true or not.

I don't really understand all the anti-Hillary sentiment. I just don't.

Come to my town and meet her! She's really nice, I swear!

There is SOOOO Much on the Internet that is NOT Accurate, it is frightening! And it is scary that a 13 year old boy Believes that if it IS on The Internet it is correct! HELP US & SAVE US!

Chi Chi is so very cute...I am glad she got ALL that attention...It must have been quite wonderful for her....You are such a good Mommy Chickie. Not just to your dogs but to your kids, too! BRAVO to you!

Chickie said...

Rich Championable - She comes across as sneaky to me. But then again, most politicians do. I just think Obama has a better chance of beating the Republican candidate than she does.

Lady of the Hills - Yeah, I'm trying to educate him that you can't believe everything you may read.

Chi Chi and I had the best time. At one point, I was so relaxed and so glad that I didn't have to go to work or be somewhere that it brought tears to my eyes! I needed that mental health day

Mike said...

I am pretty sure that Hillary and or her campaign workers are killing her chances of being president and for that, I am eternally grateful.

Tequila is a fun but I honestly think it is more of a drug than alcohol. It is the only substance that has ever resulted in me being kicked out of a bar and a separate restaurant on the same night.

I want to steal Chi Chi.

Thomas said...

I have tried so hard not to blog about the Obama rumors. Hillary is going to a special hell for the things her campaign spreads about the man. I would have punched the old lady in the throat myself.
Then I would have told her that Hillary told me to do it.


The Phosgene Kid said...

Before the Internet it used to be if you saw it in Readers Digest it had to be true!

Chickie said...

Mike - Yeah, I don't think her crew is helping her out too much.

I probably have hairline fractures on my skull, thanks to tequila. I met the floor really hard a few years ago. Couldn't walk for 3 days.

This talk of stealing Chi Chi has me concerned. I will clone her for you when I win the lottery.

Thomas - Old lady wasn't a Hillary supporter either because she felt that other countries wouldn't respect the U.S. if we had a woman for president. I could have just punched her and told her that the voices made me do it.

The Phosgene Kid - When I was a kid, The Weekly World News was my source for current events.

Patti said...

chi chi is precious! so glad y'all had a good day. I have to watch Reilly outside as the Hawks LOVE to circle around. Oy!
Keep your stance and maybe BB will learn something about being a little tolerant/open minded!

The Phosgene Kid said...

I got so sick on tequila once that now even the smell makes me retch.

So much of what is on the internet is urban legend at best, totally false at worst. And the sad part about it is that it works. Not on everybody; but on more people than you think. I once had a woman tell me (not in reference to the current administration or even the previous one) "He's the President. He can't lie."

Chickie said...

Patti - Watching for birds is one downfall to having a little dog, isn't it? I'm working on BB. It is slow going.

The Phosgene Kid - At this point, thinking about it makes me gag.

Midwestern City Boy - "He's the President. He can't lie." This would be the ideal but people should know it's not the reality.
