The “debris field” was unlike anything I’d ever seen
and we’ve had all kinds of dogs..
(cats too ..)
this was astounding.
I discovered it as I was walking out the front door,
in my nice dress..with make up on..carrying my good purse.
I tried to unsee it..
but I’m not a 12 year old
can’t play dumb
and silently slip away on my ten speed..
(those were the good ol’ days)
No, I’m an adult,
and this is my house..
and there was no escaping
or more accurately,
put down my purse,
kicked off my shoes,
made a quick phone call
“Hey..something’s come up..I’m running late..”
Grabbed the flag
overpriced enzyme cleaner,
the usual arsenal.
Doo-doo disasters remind me of smashed lightbulbs
and dropped wine glasses.
Clean-up is a multi-phased, multi-pronged, multi-layered quick action response.
And if it’s not performed comprehensively
you just know someone’s bare foot is going pay the price.
And yeah, today this little girl ate nothing but rice.
