Having exams is always a joy, since you realize that there’s so much in your life that you want to be doing other than sitting in a corner and studying for something uninteresting. But then the things you want to do end up being sitting in a corner playing games or reading stuff and you wonder if it’s really that different anyway.
It is. That was a rhetorical question.
But my exams are finally over (almost) and I am free (nearly) and everything is good with the world again (except for that what’s actually wrong). So I figured I could come online again without the guilt ripping me apart from limb to limb. Or the fear of my family finding out that I’ve been online when I should’ve been studying. I like the first one. Makes me sound all responsible and mature-like which is cool.
Anyway, I have already spoken about this before on this blog-thing, but walking with a dog isn’t really a lot of fun if you’re not all alone in a very large, flat area that you can see without having to jump up and down. And I mean alone. Because people do not like dogs. At all. And that’s okay. People always have species they don’t like, I mean, I would hate it if someone judged me on my hatred of some species that I hate but I don’t really hate any particular species. I am Snow White.
But anyway, DOGS.
When I’m walking with that big black furry thing that poops and is called a dog, the last thing on my mind is making him attack people around me. Because I do not have the time to think about them because I am far too focused on not tripping over my own feet as he pulls me around trying to make me run and catch up to my sister. That’s one thing that is never happening. It’ll ruin my reputation of being a lazy-ass person. I like my reputation.
Then there’s the thing of not letting him “do” anything on the road and dragging him a few miles away to do his business so that it doesn’t get mixed in the stuff that stray dogs leave there.
Fun Fact : Stray dog poop does not smell and it is perfectly reasonable to feed them scraps and it is also perfectly reasonable to scrunch up your stupid nose while my dog walks by even though he’s had a bath only day before yesterday. Fucking people.
But anyway, with trying not to fall, trying to not let him pee in the middle of the road and trying to not let him bump into the hundred people that for some reason congregate in the middle of the freaking road while I walk by, I need to entertain myself. And I entertain myself by saying stupid shit because that’s the kind of person I am and I am mentally 5. Or maybe 6. I just had a birthday after all.
The place we walk Mikey sometimes has peacocks roaming around. It’s nice even though I am sure someone’s going to get attacked by a peacock for being stupid. I hope someone gets attacked by a peacock for being stupid. Peacocks are vicious creatures and they cannot be trusted.
This is totally what a peacock looks like
So anyway, I was mumbling to myself that if we (“WE” being the dog and myself since the rest of my family had abandoned me by then) saw a peacock, Mikey was free to attack it. I figured it was a harmless comment because
1. I was talking to myself. You do not take people who talk to themselves seriously. And don’t give me that “You were talking to your dog” BS. He doesn’t listen to a word I say.
2. Mikey doesn’t understand the word “attack” he understands “food”, “chew-stick”, “ball” and “stick” that’s about it. And while it would be too much to expect that random strangers would know this bit of unnecessary information, you can mostly tell by a dog’s face if he’s the attacking type. Mikey’s the cuddling type. He’s a lapdog/goat stuck in a big dog’s body.
3. Mikey has seen the peacocks before. I did try to get him excited like ” Look at that! What is that? Isn’t that exciting?!“He did not think it was exciting. He thought it was stupid that I was standing there trying to get him to look at something stupid instead of going home and sleeping.
My dog the big hunter.
But all of that must’ve been too much thinking for the people walking beside me because they glared at me and muttered stuff under their breath as I passed them. Nice people. Very friendly.
But yay for almost end of exams!!!! It’s almost nice, except that it’s not. .
