"Stay!" ~OR~ Rule 5 Woodsterman Style


YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A
"DOG PERSON" OR A BRUNETTE
TO TRULY APPRECIATE THIS STORY


“Stay!”
I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the local shopping 
center and rolled down the car windows
to make sure my Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air.

She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted 
to impress upon her that she must remain there.
I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger 
at the car and saying emphatically,

"Now you stay. Do you hear me?"

"Stay! Stay!"


The driver of a nearby car, a pretty young blonde, 
gave me a strange look and said, 
(this is going to hurt read on)

"Why don't you just put it in 'Park'?"

Thank You Trailbee!

Don't you get car training???

Sandee said...

Well, I think that's a good question. I'm blonde too.

Have a fabulous day Odie. :)

If one of 'em even hinted she was opening her car door, just see how fast I could jam into PARK.
Now for the other side of story -- it'd be like a dog chasing cars; I'm so old, what would I do with if I caught it?

Euripides said...

I don't get it. Why did the storyteller name the dog Stay?

edutcher said...

Because a Mercedes is a German car and will only follow orders.

Ron Russell said...

I'm jealous of that top ones hands! And despite my years I remember my first feel!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scott, nope it's blonde or the highway.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, I guess park works too.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Marine, act like you need mouth to mouth.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Euripides, you have a better name?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, I think you're over thinking this one.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, how'd that feel?

Marine4Ever said...

Bwahahaha! Good one, Odie. Except most of the time they're stepping on my oxygen tube and whispering in my ear, "Die, you ol' sumbitch. Die!"

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Marine, Damn man, don't try it with someone on your beneficiaries list.

Marine4Ever said...

I gotta tell you,Odie... There's gonna be an overflow crowd and lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth at my funeral. The crowd's gonna be there to make damn sure I'm dead and the cryings gonna come when everybody learns I didn't leave nobody nothing!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Marine, that'll showd em real goood.
