Try Not to Smile!

A perfect example of my talent...

I had just bought a Golden Retriever puppy. He was quite a handful and got into so much trouble. One day he was running through my back yard and forgot to duck under the little bridge that went across a small stream. He hit his head really hard, not just once but several times while I tried to catch him. He ended up with a large lump on his forehead. I took my poor little puppy to the vet. They said he had a hematoma, a build up of blood between the skin and his skull. They asked me to leave him for a few hours and said they would drain it. Upon my return, I realized they had shaved a small circular patch on his head. It looked very strange with his extremely white skin and a small scab in the center. On the way home, I decided to go through the drive thru at McDonald's for lunch. My puppy sat on my lap and wagged his tail ferociously as I pulled up to get my order at the window. A young man who looked to be in his teens greeted me with a smile and commented on my dog. He asked, "Oh my! What happened to your dog?" Without any hestitation I answered with a straight face. "He was born with a third eye and I had the vet remove it yesterday" The look on the boy's face was priceless. He didn't laugh but seemed concerned. He started asking questions about it and I went on and on about how one and a million dogs are born with a third eye and that they never talk about it because it totally freaked people out! By the time I pulled away from the window, I had him totally convinced. I'm not sure how I kept myself from smiling but I burst into laughter as I pulled away.....

So, if by chance that young man is out there reading this story...

I'm sorry, but you totally made my day!
