“gross out, minnie pearl!!”

This Monday morning, I woke up to discover that Minnie Pearl, our miniature rat terrier had found a bird in our back yard. She had it in her mouth when she came back from going outside first thing this morning. Jessye started screaming. I was totally grossed out. I went out on the back porch with the dog and her “prize”, being careful not to let her run inside as I was exiting. Minnie Pearl really could not understand why I did not want her to come inside with her prey. Jessye opened the door about an inch and pushed a pair of gloves out the door to me. I donned the gloves, pried the dogs mouth open, and removed the foul fowl. BLiCKKKKKKKK!

Naturally, this set off my tendencies toward OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). I managed to only wash my hands about four times after that. (Used to be that would have set off RITUAL HANDWASHING and would have RUINED my whole day.) See? I’m doing better! = ) Now, if you’re not at least a little OCD, I know you can’t understand what ritual hand-washing is all about. And, congratulations to you, ‘cause it is straight from the NO FUN ZONE.

But, I’m betting a whole lot of people know EXACTLY what I’m talkin’ about. (Can I get a witness? Feel free to chime in comments!)
