Day 335: Somebody Leash That Woman

May 19th · 1 Comment

As I ran through Central Park I saw a woolly little dog trot onto the crosswalk at East Drive. screaming-womanTrailing a good ten yards behind him was an old lady in a large hat, and ten yards beyond, another merry little pooch brought up the rear. Everybody was unleashed. The furry dog brothers smiled the way only dogs can smile, with bright eyes and tiny pink tongues, everything about them proclaiming: What a great day for an adventure! Both enjoyed perfect ignorance of the woman, who screamed at the top of her lungs:

“NORBERT, GET BACK HERE!” She turned around. “ERNIE, CATCH UP! YOU TWO NEVER BEHAVE! THIS IS WHY I CAN’T TAKE YOU OUTSIDE!”
