Maybe you should give it a try, Mom!

So the other day Mom is climbing over my comfortably lounging self as she gets out of the shower and she stops midway out and gives me funny look.  You know, the crinkly face "I am having a thought ..." look.

Duncan, she said.  Allow me to introduce you to the concept of a bath mat.  It's this thing humans put beside the shower so when they get out they don't drip all over the floor or create puddles on the floor they might slip in. It is rectangular, kind of soft like a towel ....

She then gives me the "do you know what I mean? .... " look. And she kept staring at me with one eyebrow raised. (Botox must be wearing off since she could actually do that ....)

So, naturally, being the polite pupper that I am, I refrained from stating the obvious to my dripping water all over the place mom, ie,  "Duh, mom.  You are standing there dripping all over the place so why haven't you already gotten one????" and instead said, "Gee, Mom, sounds like a good idea."

She then made a face I was unable to interpret.

Moms and their facial expressions.  Sigh ....


  1. Wow, I don't get it either! Those faces. Well, maybe she'll get her own mat and she can drip on that instead. Gee, we just give a good ole full-body shake and we're good to go. BOL

  9. BOL, why doesn't she get herself one?

  10. Ummm... What is she hinting at? Are you getting a bath... Or do you dribble?

  11. Yes, I understand your mom's situation. I had an 80-pound "furry bathmat" that I often had to work around. I eventually figured out that if I bought a really big bathmat and learned to step on the available areas between his outstretched head and legs I'd be okay. It's kind of like Twister. But not.
