So today was a day at work that was best described by me early on. We are in prototyping for 2017 mode and after an avalanche of what I used to call "protorhea", I told one person, "I can't fart back there without (the big boss) flying out my ass with a proto in his hand!"
Note: spellcheck gives me a squiggle on "protorhea" despite the quote marks, but misses when first attempt at f-a-r-t comes out f-a-t-r. Go figure.
Anyway, we went for another afternoon walk. I got a couple of cool butterfly pictures...
But the picture I SHOULD have taken came a bit later, when we were on the way back and happened upon "home base" for a gaggle of high-school girls who daily (along with their male counterparts) go running around in this heat like they are a bunch of young whippersnappers (which they are). So Scrappy, in his best Don Juan mode, wanders into the midst of these ladies, and starts getting attention. So he SITS DOWN right in the middle of them and gives me the "top THAT, [email protected]#!" look. (Well, maybe I would if I were the one getting petted and being declared "new mascot." I don't see that as very likely, thank you...)
Anyway, I just saw yet another of those "answer the question" deals over on Holli's Hoots and Hollers, and I thought I might play along as well. Here goes, with Scrappy and me answering:
1* Spotify,Soundcloud,Pandora, iheartradio?
Me: Spotify. Pandora never really dialed me in.
Scrappy: I get yelled at if I spotify.
2 Is your room messy or clean?
Me: Depends on if the wash in the dryer is still sitting there, with the hamper sitting along side, or whether I've actually put it away.
Scrappy: MY room. I have a HOUSE, not just a room. Other than an occasional toy and the downstairs bathroom rug, I don't mess up nothing.
3 What color are your eyes?
Me: Brown. Yep, full up to there.
Scrappy: Brown. So they tell me.
4 Do you like your name? Why?
Me: Yes, it means Christ-bearer, which is cool. My dad always claimed I got my first and middle names so my initials could match our doctor at the time, CW Dahling. Of course, he thought Robert Mitchum and Robert Young were the same guy, too, so...
Scrappy: WHICH ONE? I get called Boofus, Doofus, Poofus (when I toot), Moofus (when I eat grass), Oofus (when I stop on the leash and Dad doesn't)....
5 What is your relationship status?
Me: Laurie and I are pretty much permanent roommates. Think of it as "married without benefits", lol.
Scrappy: I sleep with Dad. Do the math.
6 Describe your personality in 3 words or less?
Me: In the words of Boomer Berman: Rumbling, stumbling, bumbling...
Scrappy: Beagle chic.
7 What color hair do you have?
Me: Grey, formerly brown, losing the war with gravity.
Scrappy: Black, brown, tan, and white. With a little grey.
8- What kind of car do you have and what color?
Me: Black 2009 Impala.
Scrappy: Me too.
9 Where do you shop?
Me: Kroger when able, Wal-Mart by necessity.
Scrappy: Dad says, "I used to have a friend who said, "I wouldn't want to be a dog. Dogs can't buy things." "
10 How would you describe your style?
Me: Top of the clothes pile, covered on weekends with Hawaiian shirts.
Scrappy: Should I have put "Beagle chic" here?
11 Favorite social media account:
Me: Blogging is my favorite medium, though I would hesitate to call Blogger my favorite anything.
Scrappy: I'll go with Facebook. Dad embarrasses me less there.
Me: You do know every post publishes to FB, right?
12 What size bed do you have?
Me: Barely enough for me and him.
Scrappy. Plenty of room, just MOVE OVER!
13 Favorite snapchat filter?
Me and Scrappy: Don't do Snap chat. I have a simple phone and Scrappy is phoneless.
Scrappy: Hey, wait? Don't I get an answer?
Me: I gave yours, but feel free.
Scrappy: Thank you. Uh... what he said.
14 If you can live anywhere in the world where would it be? Why?
Me: On a lake. Because, water.
Scrappy: An all-night restaurant. Because, food.
15 Any siblings?
Me: Two brothers, two sisters. All at least ten years older, and thankfully all still above ground.
Scrappy: What am I? Ancestry.Com?
