I have a special talent. Do you know what it is? I have the uncanny ability to booby trap refrigerators. Yep. I stack things into little itty bitty spaces, so that if you aren't careful, you might have food topple out when you open my refrigerator.
Usually it's everyone else who gets bushwacked by my precarious piles. Not today. Today it was my turn. First thing this morning, I opened the refrigerator to get some milk for my kids' cereal. I reached for the milk, without taking out what was in front of it. Big mistake. Because what was in front of it was a bowl of chicken noodle soup, and that bowl of chicken noodle soup flipped right out of there, onto the floor.
My feet were covered with broth and noodles. "Dang it!" I yelled. I had been bushwacked!
Our German Shepherd, Schultz, heard my cries of distress. He gallopped over. He knew just what to do. He whipped out his big pink tongue and slurped the noodles off my feet. Then he cleaned the floor and the walls. By the time he was done, everything was sparkly clean (sort of).
It's nice to have a furry friend when you need one!
