Instant retribution

You know posting on the SDMB always makes me hungry so I decided to have another cup of coffee to go with my last little bite of apple fritter. The coffee was cold so I put in the microwave for a little longer than I should have cause it ended up near boiling hot.

I carried the very hot cup back to the desk and sat it down next to the apple fritter plate to wait for it to cool down enough to drink.

When my head was turned Jake (one year old not a pup not yet a man dog) decided to steal my last bit of fritter. When he leaned over to get it, his ear flopped down into the coffee. He let out a sort of yowl and jumped up in my lap–apparently for me to comfort him and save him from the bit that bites back. I honestly think he thinks it was the plate punishing him. He would give it a furtive glance then cringe. It was priceless.

His ear is ok, by the way. I held a cool washcloth on it for a minute or two and it’s barely red. Of course I drank the coffee.

That’s very cute. I really wish my dog would get a lesson like that.

I think I’ll fill up buckets of hot coffee and place them all over the house now. :smiley:

Now Instand Karma is going to be stuck in my head.

*Instant Karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Ev’ryone you meet
Why in the world are we here
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on earth are you there
When you’re ev’rywhere
Come and get your share

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Come on and on and on on on
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah *

*Instant coffee’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better not steal from your mother
what she’s trying to eat.
Why in the world are you here?
Surely not for you to live in fear
Why on earth is food there
Why it’s ev’rywhere
Come and get your share?

Well don’t try it son
the coffee’s hot as and the stars and the sun
If you try it son
your ears will burn like the stars and the son.
Maybe next you’ll burn the other one
Yeah yeah *

My sincere apologies to John Lennon.

Bravo Mermaid! You’ve made my morning!


What kind of pup is Jake?



I’m sure most of you have seen my pic of The boys but who can get enough of pure unadulterated cute?

They are both Brittanies. Buck is 5 years old orange and white and Jake is now 1year old liver and white. (this pic was taken in October) By the way that is their couch. I was going to throw it out but they like it so much and it keeps them off my new one, I keep it in the den just for them. No they are not spoiled rotten. Why do you ask?
