i was a couple minutes late for work today because there was a DOG traffic jam along the way. oh my! i forgot that it was doggie day in the neighborhood where i work. what does that mean? it means absolute, pure cHaOs. it means that there was a dog-friendly scavenger hunt and that the bookstore was on the list of stops. and what does that mean?... well, that means dogs were welcome to come in the store and, my god, you should've seen it! there were PLENTY of them wandering around looking at books (and clues for the hunt) along with the rest of the big and little people. our clue was written on a golden bone that we put in the mouth of the stuffed boar that hangs on the back wall. the funny thing is that i never even noticed the mounted boar head until today. hmmm...interesting.
ugh...of all the days to be sick. i did, however, meet a very memorable german shepard and a collie (not to mention a baby in hot pink and blue tights and a little girl with a bobbed haircut, corduroy skirt, and a book under her arm) that i wish i could have brought home with me. but...uh...never mind........
right now i think it's definitely time for bed. last night i dreamt about dinosaurs (they came out of a book causing me to sit bolt upright and make some sort of strange ahhhhh! sound that definately woke me up); the night before that there was a blizzard where i stood outside in a halo of light feeling the wet snow on my face. i wonder what it will be tonight. every breathing moment is starting to feel like some sort of bizarre adventure. or maybe it's the fever. either way, i feel like i've fallen into the rabbit hole.
