Why, you ask?
Let me explain!
You see, I was out raking leaves in the back yard, while Mari was inside doing the dishes. Seems like a fair exchange given that the back yard is pretty small … except for one thing … dog dooh … which I stepped in … three times … in my new running shoes … the ones with the deep treads!
The dog dooh, as luck would have it, was cleverly camouflaged among the leaves … so I stopped raking to clean it up … not as simple as it sounds … because it was mushy … from all the rain … three weeks worth of it … and the dog had stepped in pretty much every pooh … mashing them into the grass, making them as easy to get out as mustard stains on a white t-shirt!
A half hour later I was back raking leaves. After I finished, I decided to wash the bottoms of my shoes … with the hose … only to discover that the outside tap had been turned off … which is when I decided to go for a walk … and that’s when I came up with the idea of the rating system! I figure if doing the dishes is worth one point, raking leaves has to be worth 20 … to account for the dog dooh! Gonna run it by Mari!
In two or three days I expect the pooh remaining in the treads of my shoes to be dried enough so that I can bang the bottoms of them together to knock it off. In the meantime, they languish outside on the step … while the dog rests comfortably on her cushion!
Have an awesomely dooh-free day!
