Something Happened on the Way To Getting A Nap
“Do you guys have a black dog?”
“We think we have it in our car.”
I hadn’t seen Charlie, but realized that wasn’t unexpected, but then I look, and it’s a Black Lab mix that looks like Charlie.
“Yup, that’s her.”
Opens car door.
Dog jumps out and I move quickly to door.
That ain’t Charlie.
Dog realizes I’m not whomever she’s supposed to be with. Dog jumps out, panics, then bounces back into car.
“Nope, never mind. Not my pup.”
“Does an old lady live here?”
“We were told it was an old lady’s dog that lives on this street and has a beautiful front porch. We thought it was yours.”
“I’ll be sure to tell my young wife you think so.”
Another five minutes, and they took off, planning to go door-to-door.
