A walk to end all walks - just for you,ellettra
As always, these are TRUE STORIES with vocal embellishments on my part. ;)
The scene: Walking in the ‘hood with mah pit bull and muttskie.
Mina: The Pit Bull who is certain little yappy dogs yelling at her must be dispatched post-haste
Celeste: The Muttskie who does whatever Mina does even when she doesn’t
Me: Just a hapless human dragged about by two crazed canines
Me: Hey, it’s pretty toasty out, eh?
Mina: It’s more than toasty, minion, it’s like we’re walking in a giant molten lava-ball.
Celeste: Ohhhh, can we chase our lava-selves? Please?
Mina: Sure you can. You should probably chase your lava-self in the road, though. Better traction.
Celeste: Okay!!! *prances off sidewalk*
Me: Negative, little crazed one! Mina, please don’t encourage Celeste to do dumb things.
Mina: Yeah, whatever. It’s not my fault she believes everything I say, even though I am right about 150% of the time. I try hard to live up to my awesome standards.
Me: Yes, it’s hard being you.
Mina: I’m glad you recognize that, minion.
Celeste: It’s hard to be me too!!!
*Me and Mina roll eyes*
Suddenly, barking erupts from the house on our right. Then more barking is heard from the house behind us.
Mina: PANIC ALERT LEVEL FOUR MILLION! It’s a panoramic attack! Rally the troops!
Celeste: I is the troops and I’m rallied!
Me: Good lord, Mina, these dogs are like 1/50th of your size.
Mina: Ha! Yeah and parasites are like 1/trillionth of my size and yet I don’t see you inviting them over for tea.
Me: Good point. About face! Let’s, um, go visit that lamp post five blocks away – I hear it’s real popular with the boy dogs.
Mina: Not until I tell those miniature hounds of hell what’s-what. *barks, whines and glares at five random houses* Okay, I’m done.
Celeste: Me too! *promptly runs into tree* Whoa! That is the fastest moving tree I’ve ever met in my whole entire 1-yr-long existence!
Mina: God, you are embarrassing.
Me: Like you should be talking. Anyway, let’s go check out that lamp post.
*Mina glares one more time at random house; Celeste nose bops the fast-moving tree; Me, I just hope for the best*
