PTSD averted

Once again this morning I was grateful I had dogs instead of kids. I mean beyond the standard “my dogs will never deal drugs, watch anime porn or deplete the greater Wichita metropolitan area of it’s itinerant worker population using a crude but effective shiv he formed himself using an empty Schlitz can”.
No, this morning it was a much cruder sentiment. First, let me set up. On the weekends I keep my alarm clock on for the same time it goes off during the week. I don’t necessarily get up with it, but I find that if I wake up once in the morning then it prevents me from sleeping til 3 in the afternoon and wasting my day.
Anyway, the alarm goes off this morning at 7am the way it always does. I lay there for a bit trying to figure out what the fuck is going on and why the hell am I dreaming about delayed shuttle launches. Slowly it seeps in that the alarm is going off, it’s not monday, if I turn it off I can go back to sleep! Huzzah for the shopkeep!
I own a king sized bed, a big bed, I can’t just reach the alarm from where I sleep (sprawled out across the middle) I must roll to it. As luck would have it, Ghengis is quite often between me and the alarm if David isn’t there. I rolled my doughy fatitude over him, hit the alarm and went back to sleep. Ghengis reacted by making his mudgeon noise, stretching and cuddling into my back.
Ghengis won’t remember it at all.
Now, if I had a child who somehow managed to get in my bed and I was naked (which I wouldn’t be if my kid was in my bed, but let’s just go with the model as it stands), if ghengis were a child (a human child) I suspect that they would react in the same way initially and then…
then 20 years later you would find the full grown version of that child lying fetal on the kitchen floor and weeping, a can of Pilsbury biscuit dough exploded on the counter. This sudden trigger of memory will cost me thousands in therapy bills.
Dogs are better than kids!

  1. Ask April if she remembers as a toddler whether or not I wore nightclothes. And I have the pictures to prove it.

  2. Seeing your parents do it isn’t so bad, I mean your parents are lovely people and we had a great time…

  3. My dad enjoys telling me if I call and interrupt. He’ll be like, “we couldn’t pick up, we were at it again”. My mom thinks I should be happy my parents are in love still, after 30-something years. Yes, but do I need to know just how much????
    Your website is making me repeat my info even though I ask it to remember.

  4. you know, if you’d just check the webcam then you wouldn’t have to worry about calling them at the wrong time!
    my website now has a feature to weed out the bad and the evil!!!!

  5. anime porn is just like any other anime – only MOISTER.
    Besides, its not as bad as all that, I mean it’s really simple – when you find the kid on the floor with the dough there is a quick and easy solution – the military!
    Did I mention that Alex is joining the Coast Guard?
