one dog’s barrier is another person’s comedy skit

Because our dogs are indoors much of the time, long ago we implemented a system of baby gates to allow segregation of bitches in season or those that didn’t get along (some un-neutered males can be buttheads…I could go somewhere with that statement but I’ll stay focused). Living in a single story ranch style house with a split bedroom plan lends itself to setting up multiple dog areas plus dog-free zones when we humans need our space. My wife claims she stays in shape because of the constant baby gate hopping thru-out the day. As I was stepping over the gate at our master bedroom door earlier today I froze the instant in my mind and realized that if a stop-action frame by frame image of me stepping over the gate, a half step before thru a half step after was put into a continuous loop, I would qualify for a grant from the “Ministry of Silly Walks”. John Cleese would be proud.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
