So last night as usual right before bed it was time to take the dogs out. Since we have tons of wildlife surrounding where we live, and no fences.. we started taking the dogs out one at a time to keep closer tabs on them.
It was Ziva's turn in this case to go first. I opened the door with my flashlight *no outdoor area lights either*, stepped outside Ziva following behind me. She passed in front of me and we both rounded the corner as I instructed her to go potty, when.... "BOW, WOW, WOW!!" And she jumped back into me as I stumbled over backwards hollering, "Woah!!" Grabbing her collar, both of us nearly falling as she dragged me right back into our camper trailer home.
|"RUN!! It's a monster!!!"|
I think the conversation that followed was something like this.
Me - "Ziva, what did you see?!"
Ziva - "Shit mom, it was a BIG MONSTER!! You didn't see it?!"
Me - "You nearly gave me a heart attack!! I didn't see anything, no glowing eyes, no noisy deer bouncing back into the brush. You sure you saw something?"
Ziva - "Forget peeing...I'm going back to bed."
*Crawls back into bed and settles down.*
*Heart still pounding like a maniac.*
Ziva - "Nope still not going."
Daddy and Dante head outside with Dante on a leash, a larger flashlight, and a gun, me following closely behind with a second flashlight.
What if it's a cougar? Or bear? Werewolf? Zombie?
Daddy gives the all clear, Dante pee's and we head back inside to bring Ziva out.
Ziva - "Nope not going."
Me - "You haven't been out for hours! I know you have to go, come on."
Ziva - "Fine..."
*Slinks out the door, looking suspiciously around in all directions still growling under her breath.*
Ziva - "What if the monster eats me? You'll be sorry."
|"I know their was something out there."|
Happy "Not so wordless" Wednesday!!
