I'm Glad

It gives me more confidence to know that the cashiers at Bed, Bath, & Beyond are now on the front lines in the war on terror.

It occurs to me that by packing new ball-bearings in lard, we might also enlist family pets as spotters when out in public.

Of course, and I'm embarrassed to admit it, but, last time I asked a dog what he wanted--because he'd already been fed--he kept responding with whimpers and chop-licks. I finally asked him to show me. He was delighted to see me get up to follow him into the kitchen where he sat down next to his dishes and the sink. I asked again, and this time he glanced up at the sink.

His water dish was empty. Duh. People training might be required.

What do you think?
