Murphy's Law

Last night I had a meeting at the house where Murphy lives.

Though Murph is very excitable, normally she does not jump on me. She is a big strong strapping dog and as much as I love doggies, I generally do not like big doggie feet on me. I'm not too fond of little doggie feet on me, either.

I mean, I don't think you'd like it much if I greeted you with, "Hi! How are you?!" and then stuck my foot out, or worse yet, stepped on you. Greeting people with your feet is rude, by almost any rule of etiquette.

Joz's Rule #231: Do not greet me with your feet. I think that this rule should also apply to doggies.

It had been at least a couple of days since I'd last visited Murph. I was sitting at the dining room table when Murphy was allowed back in the house & she got a running start, planted her dirty doggie paws on me, and slurped my face.

I'd forgotten Murphy's Law: If I haven't seen you in a really, really long time (a couple of days), I'm allowed to get all excited, jump on you, and lick you. (Not to be confused with the more-widely-known & accepted Murphy's Law.)

I guess Murphy's Law overrules Joz's Rule #231.

But unless you are Murphy or Hunny, jumping on me and licking me would be a very bad way to greet me.
