Cream Shop Friday: Ham Tongue
Cream Shop Friday is a feature on this blog detailing the biggest distraction of the week.
Our lawn is rapidly turning the color of french fries so James decided to devise an intensive sprinkler strategy to green it back up. Deeply engrossed in equations involving open channel flow, he is distracted by a sight that his engineering mind instantly recognizes as an anomaly -- a woman jogging with her pug. James is all too familiar with the pug's propensity for sloth and general shunning of exercise. He chuckles to himself, enjoying a private dig on Vito. Then he realizes, it IS Vito. Not running with, but chasing the woman jogger. The woman was oblivious to his short-lived pursuit. Vito ran out of steam quickly, and lay down beneath a tree with a massive ham tongue. James, all grumbly, retrieved Vito and immediately called PetCo to have them come install our electric fence next week.
