There's been a whole lot of barking going on at our house lately. Just one of the many examples goes something like this:
Our girl child who thinks she's no longer a child came home 15 minutes late the other evening. The following "barking" is what took place ~
The front door squeaks open.
A parent barks: "Shoes off!"
Another parent growls: "You're late! Where've ya been?!"
Girl-child: "Stuck behind a slow driver"
Parent: "Leave earlier!"
Girl-child: "I'm going to bed."
Parent: "Brush your teeth!!"
Girl-child exits stage left.
Tonight, as I sat quietly (yeah right!) in the living room with our youngest boy-child, I glanced over at him and said, "Ra-Ra-Ra-Ra-RUFF!" With a puzzled look he asked, "What was that about?". "Oh nothin'", was my reply. "Just thought I'd bark at you for a minute." He, of course, didn't get it, but the father in this household thought it was hysterical. I'm going to try to keep my barking to a minimum this week. Good luck to me...
