Well, I have procrastinated writing my blog before. I have fallen asleep in the middle of writing my blog. I have had to get my husband to write it for me when I was too sick. I have had to post it late due to an internet outtage. And I've even had to phone it in once while I was away from my computer. But I've never once completely forgotten to write it.
That is...until tonight.
In my defense, I was working on a writing project for someone else. It was very important, and I managed to get most of it done. But after that, I started watching "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader" and lost track of time.
For the record, I am smarter than a fifth grader, even if most of the contestants aren't.
So, at this late hour, after forgetting to prepare a single thing to write, I will be forced to wing it. But like most self-respecting fifth graders, I am pretty good at making things up as I go along. And lucky for me, I did witness something pretty funny today.
Remember our boy, Joey, in his anti-escape helmet? I caught him in the yard this evening trying to shove his head, inverted hot pink lampshade and all, through a newly dug hole under the fence. He was furiously attempting to get his head to cooperate, without much luck.
He was a dog possessed.
Poor Joey continuously jammed the wide end of the collar against the hole and the fence with a loud clacking sound. No matter how hard he tried, or from what angle he approached, his head just wouldn't go through.
I finally pulled him away from the hole, fearful that he would figure out that if he backed through the hole, he would have better success. Don't tell him I said that. I wouldn't put it past him to try.
I took this picture of him at the end of his struggles. I figure it sums up his inner monologue pretty well.
Until the next time...I'll be writing my blog before midnight!
