I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day. I did until CM caught me that is, since I am now grounded- she will have to share the reason why.
CM here, as Tonka shared it WAS a good Memorial Day, and there is nothing better than a cook-out. I don't know why, but it just seems that things just taste better off the grill. Today wasn't a big get together, just at home doing things that needed to get done.
AP had left to go help a friend with a computer problem and I stopped working to grab a bite to eat. I remembered that there was still some hot dogs from the grill. I knew that would be the perfect snack to hold me over since later that evening we were having RIBS! =)
I picked the two that looked the best from the grill...I like them when they have all the grill marks and are bursting. So I put them on a plate and warmed them up in the microwave. I got out the buns, ketchup and mustard. I pulled out a glass and poured myself some iced tea, I then put my nice warm hot dogs in their buns on my plate. I had to go to the bathroom, so I left them there to cool a minute.
On the way back to the kitchen my phone rang so I picked it up to have the person on the other end hear me yell..." NO TONKA NO" in their ear. Needless to say I shouted "I'll call you back" and hung up. To which Tonka took that to be his signal EAT FASTER!!
Now, you might be saying about now “WHY" would I leave hot dogs unattended. But you see Tonka has NEVER taken food off the counter or table before. He has "begged" after you, but NEVER helped himself to human food even if he could reach it.
So as I tried to get them from him, he pushed them up under the counter on the floor and then "BUTT/TAILED" blocked me so that I could not reach them! As I was pulling his solid 125 pound body from the hot dogs yelling at him to "drop it". I now wish that I could enter him into the NATHAN HOT DOG EATING COMPETITION! He wouldn't even need water to make the buns go down easy! He ate(inhaled) BOTH hot dogs and buns. Thank goodness I hadn't added the ketchup and mustard!
Now you would think that after being scolded and being made to go out of the kitchen and lay down he would have realized "I'm a bad boy". NOPE!! When I went back to start over again, this time NOT leaving the kitchen. He proceeded to have a temper tantrum!
Tonka came into the kitchen and began to "talk" at me and when that didn't work then he started to bark. Now most of you know Tonka rarely barks and when he does he has to work it up. Not this time! When he still didn't get his way, that being another hot dog; he took it out on the kitchen towel! It was a nice towel...RIP kitchen towel.
Okay, now I'm thinking with his heart surgery and all his meds are hot dogs okay? So knowing that even if I didn't tell AP, that Tonka's evening/morning BM would! So I had to track her down to fill her in....NOW I'M GROUNDED FROM "BABYSITTING" THE ANGEL!!
So it was a nice Memorial Day and I now can NEVER leave an unprotected hot dog in the house.
