116 Good Things about Unemployment

116. Your dog won’t be wearing Sexy Beast cologne. Yesterday, the Huffington Post published a hysterical photo collage by Katla McGlynn featuring The Stupidest Pet Products Ever Invented. I won’t be purchasing Sexy Beast for $65 or the Hot Doll Sex Toy for Dogs no matter what it costs. View the reader notes too; lots of defensive comments from people who actually have purchased the products for their pets.

115. You may have your doubts some days, but deep down you know you can withstand this ordeal, not unlike these quarters that have been standing for the last 200 years. Well, maybe leaning.

114. Nobody can beat you at Solitaire. All 1,723 versions of it, including Premier Super Precision High-Tech Grand Prix Turbo with Wicked Performance Solitaire.

113. You visit the Village Beautiful and take photos. Walden and Spring streets cross at a parking lot. Something seems amiss.

112. When five airlines say they won’t charge for carryon baggage, you devise a scheme with your girlfriend to bring you on her next business trip. You just have to lose a few pounds.

111. You spend yesterday ferreting out a disagreeable smell, sniffing like a dog under cabinets, pulling junk out of closets and finally finding the source first thing this morning. Yes, you set that mouse trap awhile back and forgot about it. Don’t do that again. And especially before breakfast.

hey, i rather like ur list of good things about unemployment.
i think u should seriously consider writing as u have the time now.if not a novel yet, maybe a humour/fun book with colourful illustrations,spiral bound!

we doggy parents do indulge in a lot of stuff that would be otherwise labelled Crazy, ridiculous, funny etc etc

just that it is fun n our Dawgs seem to enjoy all the attention.
of course, sometimes it is a little too over the top!!

Thanks, Aksharaa, for your comment and compliment. I have two big dogs that wouldn't be seen in a stroller :-).
