For Murphy's Mom

Dear Murphy's Mom:

Today, I came by the house to pick up some mail. When I got there, the gardener was outside watering the backyard and Murphy was running around all over the wet pavement.

When Murph saw me come through the door, she thought she was going to get some playing time & grabbed one of her tennis balls and headed toward me... one of her old, grungy tennis balls... one of the icky ones that she'd chewed until it had popped.

It was wet and slimy and black and gross. And she dropped it on my foot.

Now, normally, this would not be a big deal, but today, I was wearing hose and heels. And the aforementioned slimy ball landed *plop* on my foot. Let's just say that the hose did not provide any kind of protection for my foot from Murphy slime. And there was a nice little black/brown/green splat mark where the ball landed on my foot... but it's ok. I was headed home soon, anyway. And I threw the ball exactly once for Murph today... sorry if she seemed disappointed when you got home.

At least she did not try to jump on me. :)
