So yesterday, I was almost arrested. Ok, maybe that is a SLIGHT exaggeration but it was the closest I have some to it (well almost…) The sis and I decided to take our little pup for an outing to the pet store to get more food for him and maybe a little prize but also wanted to run into Sport’s Authority to look for a few things and also to try to locate some Clif Shots. Well, apparently we pulled in and parked next to the biggest Busy Body (or other five letter word that starts with a “B”) in Milwaukee county… Apparently, she took it upon herself to call the COPS on us for letting the dog sit in the car for a whole whopping 20 minutes (which we really intended to only be ten but couldn’t find what we were looking for… but still…) in the mid 70 degree weather. Yes, I know, GASP! How could we do such a thing?!?! And by the way, when we came out, the car was NOT hot and he was curled up on the seat, sound asleep! But of course the cop managed to pull up right as we were about to leave. Well, lucky for us, the cop thought this woman was off her rocker and told the women to head out but the lady was insistent on chewing me out for… well, I am still not really sure to be honest??!?!?!?!? Because 1) it was not hot out?, 2) I did leave the window cracked as much as I normally do? 3) he was fine? and 4) we were on our way to the pet store and also to eat dinner downtown at a place that allows you to bring your dog to the patio. So clearly, I am the worst pet owner in the world! Jeepers, woman. But it really pissed me off because if she wants to spend so much of her own time and energy trying to “make the world a better place”, I really hope she has a monthly donation she makes to the humane society, 37 stray animals and never eats meat because otherwise, she is being awefully hypocritical! I understand that there are horrible people in the world but I was very insulted that she thought my sister and I were so horrible for spoiling our dog by bringing him along for an afternoon of fun… (FYI, he pretty much ate his weight in local grass fed beef at dinner so he was happy all the same even though the cop kinda scared him a bit )
So anyways, super annoyed at this woman and really wish I would have gotten her address to send her a little note telling her what I think about her but it is probably better if I don’t But I now have another thing to add to my pet peeve list Pet Peeve Item 324) Busy Body Women in their Black WASPY Gas Guzzling, Environment Polluting SUV Who Call the Cops on Me for Bringing my Dog Along to Go Shopping… But as another side note, the Brookfield police force has a bit of time on their hands so apparently it is a very safe place?!?!
To another Body I made stay Busy This morning I made my sister get busy with a kick-a$$ workout/cardio circuit thing! Now remember, I have zero training in exercise just LOTS of experience over the years…so don’t try any of this without checking with your doctor/trainer to make sure it OK for you and also if you hurt yourself, that is not because I told you to try this at home so proceed at your own risk!!
But this is what I cooked up for her! (She loved it by the way, I could tell by the way she kept telling me she was going to pass out and be sick )
