Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Tuesday, 29 April 2008

I was out running with the dog today.  It was nice.

We were loping along, not really pushing it; sort of trotting, really.  The sun was finally shining again, and the air was just the right temperature;  not too warm, not too cold.

I was feeling pretty good.  Not running to work out, just running to save time.  The dog's gotta cover a certain amount of ground in a day, or he gets neurotic.  If I run, this takes less time.

He was behaving very well, running roughly at "heel".  A Fed Ex driver came out from a house and smiled broadly at him as she got into her truck to make notes on her little clipboard. 

Half a block later, it happened.  My toe caught on a raised bit of side-walk, and I tripped.

My Kung-fu reflexes fired, and I thought that - just for a moment there, mind you - I thought that I had avoided a fall.

Unfortunately, my high-strung puppy-dog had much less faith in my alacrity.  He startled, then he jumped.  Then he dashed forward and side-ways all at the same time with his tail between his legs, and he didn't stop until he had hit the end of the leash with a *snap*.

I was done for; fell to the ground like a fifty pound bag of rice.

The Fed Ex lady was staring at me, yelling "You all right?"

Some twiggy little trophy wives out for a stroll were giggling.  The dog looked like he expected the world to cave in on him, and I tried to jump to my feet with as much dignity as I could muster.  My knee was scraped and bloody, but that was it.  I tried to be as cool as possible as I walked away...

...until the Fed Ex lady pulled up, beeped the horn, and yelled "Your cell phone and your keys are laying on the sidewalk back there!"

Doh!  Self-respect elimination, complete...your work here is done, Murphy.

GatsBy Blastyn,

Hi! Welcome, and thank you for your comment. I'd say opinion, but I don't think it quite reaches the level of opinion.

What a fun new friend you've made Trees! Or is this an old friend under a new name? Anywho, I'm sure he was drawn to your "Wacky Fundies" posts like a moth to a flame. On a quick search on his handle I came up with these links... just a few of many. Seems he loves to comment, but I find no links (yet) to his own forum.

GeekGoddess,

Wow, after reading the comments you linked to...I'd say he sounds just like Baylor would, if Baylor believed in God.

I love how he repeatdly demands that people not get "emotional" over mere disagreement.

Ya know, I was just talking to my mom the other day, and they've been having trouble with a wacko in the area who seems to be heavily influenced by this movement.

Well, the dude just assaulted a neighbor while trying to "arrest" him.

The neighbors have all been terrified that eventually this nut will snap and hurt someone, and now he has.

The man he assaulted has a family, including a young child. So GatsBy Blastyn can accuse me of failing to elevate the conversation for linking to their lunacy and calling it bat-shit insane (per comment on previous post)-

- but at the end of the day, I'm not the one beating up people in their own driveway, going onto other people's property and destroying their possessions, and claiming to own their property due to my belief in some alternative law system.

Sorry, that's bat-shit insane behavior, due to bat-shit insane thinking (not to mention anti-social) and talking about it using pink-finger-in-the-air-sipping-tea verbage isn't going to do the job to describe it.

John,

Guano just doesn't have the same "punch". :-)
