Mom! What's that "L" on your forehead?!

"Mom, why's your hand all bandaged up?"
"I don't know what you mean, dear."
"What's that "L" on your forehead?"
"What "L" is that, dear? It's probably just a shadow from the sun, honey."
"No, mom, it's clearly an "L." As in Loser."
"All right, dear. I broke the first rule of interacting with dogs."
"And that is...?"
"Never let your guard down when two strange dogs are near each other."
"English, please, Mom?"
"Okaaaay... I put my hand near an angry dog's mouth, and it became an hors d'oeuvre, okay honey? Happy now? Your mom is an idiot."
"I see. Was it a big, mean pit bull?"
"No, dear, it was actually a small breed. I've never been bitten by a big, mean pit bull. Just those little ones. Always the little ones."
"Stitches, mom?"
"You're enjoying this, aren't you honey?"

  1. It's true - the little ones are the most dangerous. Disease-laden mosquitoes, black-death infested rats, cockroaches, small dogs. All spawn of the devils. The only exception to the "small is dangerous" rule is the cat. They never draw blood, make your wrist swell to twice its size or give you cat scratch fever.

    Unless you've crossed that shifting line in the sand which is in a different place for each cat. Then all bets are off.
