Okay, so this isn’t something I saw on the sidewalk (rather, I found it on the interwebs), but you gotta admit, it’s pretty damn funny!
Being a Big Dog in a Big City, Addy gets a wide variety of reactions when we are out and about. It’s usually fear. Mostly people try to disguise it, usually pretending there is a reason to suddenly cross the street. Sometimes, it’s blatantly obvious.
Along our morning walk, Addy and I pass by a bus stop filled with kids waiting for the school bus. I noticed that Addy always beelines for a young boy (maybe 6 years old)…after a couple of days I realized it was because he was sharing his pop tarts with her. Once I realized this, I let him know that while it was sweet, he didn’t need to share his breakfast with her. He looked at me, with a bit of sass and said:
I share my breakfast because I don’t want her to eat me.
Oh honey, she’s not going to eat you…I promise.
Lady, I ain’t taking noooo chances!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I feel like I should offer you a bit of history before the tequila starts flowing. I mean, if you’re going to be celebrating, at least know the basics.
Of course, if you follow Epicurious Texan, you may have already read this. But for those of you who haven’t let me sum up:
May 5th, Battle of Puebla, Mexican victory over French troops, credited as start of Mexican resistance to French rule.
History lesson over: go drink some tequila! Salud!
