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.
