Grand Finale, Post 31 Days

Alright friends, I've been taking a little bloggy break. But after 31 days of talking about adventures, I had to report about the grand finale of adventures, inspired by Liz, who thinks all of my stories are possibly way funnier than they are and gives me encouragement to write them down.

I must remind you of a photo posted on here during my month long series where I was  excited to have crazy adventures happen all the time (what was I thinking?).

This week the quote didn't apply to children.

I got bit, not by a kid, but by a dog. Watch out kids, you're getting one-upped by the canine community.

I'm thinking of writing a short story about this one. I'll call it Dog Bite (original, I know).

I'll be sure to include my conversation at the doctor, which was so funny it should have been recorded, except for the fact I almost spent the entire day in the ER.

Doctor: "you have dogs, right?"
Me: "no..I just get bitten by them."

Doctor: Shakes head. Laughs.
Tells me sorry for the bad news.
Gives me tetanus shot.
Talks to me about going to emergency room for more shots.
Reminds me to bring a book because we both agree dog bite measures lowest on the priority list.
Tells me 'thank you for the laughter' perhaps because I decide to tell the story in all its ridiculousness.

I can't make this stuff up.

Thankfully, I have only had to get one shot. Turned out better than expected so far.

Your turn. What is something unusual, perhaps a little unbelievable but true that has happened to you lately?

Linking with Lisa-Jo for (a little more than) five minute friday on truth.


  1. Wow. That had to be a scary situation. I have never been bit by a dog, but I teach students with Autism, so I have students who attempt to bite me on occassion. Usually, I just get kicked in the shin and it takes months for the bruise to go away. Thank you for sharing on 5 Minute Friday today!

  2. Sorry you got bit by the dog. I haven't had anything too exciting happen to me to share lately. Sad, I know. Have a blessed weekend.

  3. Oh I bet that was scary! I've got an 80 pound German Shepherd who is as gentle as a lamb. So glad you only needed one shot :)

  4. Thanks for coming by and for the love, y'all. :)
