hahaha!
Wanna hear a really funny one? We are having our deck replaced and the workers here called the head contractor guy this morning and told him that our dog had jumped the fence (we have a big dog who is a love but keeps barking at these guys and sounds like she wants to eat them even though her tail is wagging) and that she attacked one of the guys, who then swung his hammer at her and what should they do - the owner wasn't home - should they take her to the vet (they said she was just laying there in convulsions) or what should they do... the poor guy (who we've known for 4 years - he did our remodel project and has known this dog since she was a puppy - his dog used to play with her when they were both puppies) had to pull over as he was driving when he got the call and was totally horrified - he figured she hadn't really attacked but that the guy must have panicked since she is so big - he was so mad that this guy had swung a hammer at her. He was just about to hang up to call my husband (because he knew better than to call me) when they started cracking up and april fooled him!
So funny - just glad it's not for real - she's my (other) baby, and she can read my mind - I swear we are soul mates - if you can have a dog for a soul mate.

I've had a parakeet and a cat that I swear could read my mind but maybe I was reading theirs?

Thats odd. I gave up on housework because it took to much time and energy away from creating. Thanks for the chuckle. Diana

Okay. This isn't even remotely funny in any way. I would've fired them on the spot.

The "keeping me from my houskeeping" part should have been a dead giveaway! Come on! Is there ANYBODY who participates in RCB, even as a lurker, would even *consider* doing housework before beading? We are hardcore devotees to the mysteries of the little balls with holes. :-) So we have a sparkly carpet? So we do without lunch because there was a clasp we just had to have. Who cares? At least we have stash to show for our efforts.

you don't think? Hmnn... it wouldn't have been funny if it was true, that's for sure. And it wouldn't have been funny if they had called me. Maybe you had to be there to hear the contractor tell the story... he didn't think it was funny at the time (and I'll bet firing those guys did cross his mind at first), but he did think it was funny after he got over it. Plus maybe it helps if you know Zoe and know she would just as soon pee on their feet in submission than attack them...

Or in the crack where the ceramic tiles are grouted and leave a tiny space at the woodwork. Oops - guess you all know now that I've been known to dig those crystals out. Hey, at 12¢ (and up) a crystal - of course I'm going after them!

well sorry to have made you all sick and grossed out. It's funny because there is no way in hell it could have ever happened and yet this guy fell for it. But I can see how the idea of it would make you uncomfortable. Oh well.

Pam,
The only thing that matters is that you are okay with it. Who really cares if I didn't think it was funny? I've just about peed myself at some things and others are sitting there with stony faces. Life is waaaaaaaaaaay too short to give a damn about making sure that we please everyone. We'll share other laughs together - and probably within the next few days. :-)

Yeah, that's true. They called him -- which makes it not as bad. Okay, I wouldn't have fired them! :-) ~~ Sooz ------- "Those in the cheaper seats clap. The rest of you rattle your jewelry." John Lennon (1940 - 1980) Royal Varieties Performance ~ Dr. Sooz's Bead Links

Wellll....not uncomfortable. See, I worked for animal welfare organizations much of my working life, and I don't think anything abut animals being hurt is remotely funny. I've seen too many (probably in the thousands) hurt and dead to find it even slightly amusing.
It's like making a joke about black people hanging from a tree by a rope. Seriously offensive. ~~ Sooz ------- "Those in the cheaper seats clap. The rest of you rattle your jewelry." John Lennon (1940 - 1980) Royal Varieties Performance ~ Dr. Sooz's Bead Links
